Sarah Sweetflower has inherited Cactus Bob’s Saloon in the ghost town of Elbow’s
Bend. It is here that she plans to open Sarah Sweetflower’s Sarsaparilla Saloon and
Bridal Shoppe with the help of our hero, Stanley Stoutheart. But the villainous Sly
Scavenger and his accomplice, Miss Twinkle Toes, are more interested in Cactus
Bob’s lost gold mine. With the help of a professional gunfighter, Big Bad Granny,
attempt to do away with Sarah, only to be foiled by the town’s only permanent
resident, Tumbleweed, who doubles as both the town judge and constable.
