An adaptation of Mark Twain's wonderful story set in California's gold-rush days. This is the story that made Angel's Camp, California famous for its annual frog jumping contest. The story relates the hilarious escapades of Jim Smiley who would bet on anything (even if he had to change sides to get the bet going). There is "The Fifteen Minute Nag" (a horse that looked so bad the other horse owners would give her a head start) that could win any race, Andrew Jackson (Smiley's pet dog that could beat any dog until he came across an opponent with no hind legs), and the famous educated jumping frog by the name of Daniel Webster.
