In this sequel to "Fat Camp Commandos" the fat-camp dropouts are back - ready to raise a ruckus at a western dude ranch.

It's not enough that Ralph and Sylvia Nebula and their dear friend, Celtic witch Mavis Goldfarb have absconded from fat camp. It's not enough that they've perpetrated pranks on the people of Pookooksie. These anti-social tubs of lard won't stop there. Now, they're primed to challenge the great traditions of our nation, the things we learned as children in dark movie theaters, and in front of the TV during the four o'clock John Wayne spaghetti western.Yes, that's right, theyre headed to the Great American West. Imagine the fat camp kids against the setting of the west: down the dusty street, tumbleweeds tumbling, the languid sun beating down. Doc Atkins, a dissolute gunfigter, will learn that these kids are not to be trifled with. If you give them a trifle, they will eat it.
