"Western Show" is the sixteenth episode of season three of Wizards of Waverly Place, and the sixty-eighth of the overall series. It first aired on May 14, 2010.


Mr. Laritate loses his job as principal of Tribeca Prep, having been replaced by Superintendent Clanton, an authoritative figure who enforces a uniformed dress code. While the strict expectation to conform to law and order causes Max to sharpen up, Clanton rebuffs Alex's pranks and Justin's attempt to curry favor, causing the two to hatch a plan to reinstate Laritate as their principal. Because Laritate's dream is to be a cowboy in the Old West, Alex sends them back to the West in order to convince Laritate that modern times are better.
