This was the third of three "Little House" telemovie sequels, and the last story to be filmed, but not the last to be broadcast (it debuted during February 1984, while the film made before it, _Little House: Bless All the Dear Children (1983) (TV)_, aired ten months later, in December of that same year).

The deadbeats of greater Peanut Grove have got to get the hell out of town after commerce dries up.
Mr. Hansen closes down his mill since nobody in these parts has enough money to buy a splinter, much less a two-by-four. Mr. Olsen's mercantile goes out of business because Harriet charges 5 cents for a loaf of bread instead of the usual 2 cents. Doc Baker packs up his medical kit which includes a saw for amputations and a supply of miracle elixir. It's 100 proof, good stuff.
Melissa Gilbert's talent has all but disappeared (she said she hated wearing the bonnets, anyway), Michael Landon abandoned the shoe black for his hair, and Carolyn Grasshole still couldn't act.
Bye-bye, Ingholes of Peanut Grove.
