Not used to little girls on the Ponderosa
19 January 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Wells Fargo delivers little Linda Sue Risk to the Cartwright door at the Ponderosa. She's a little girl that looks like a boy and guess what. She's a long lost Cartwright relative who was deposited at the Ponderosa by her mother Antoinette Bower who has been reduced to dire circumstances and can't care for. So she goes to the rich relatives.

Lorne Greene and his sons never turned away anyone in need. But they certainly aren't used to having a little girl around. She takes some getting used to. Poor Hop Sing is driven to distraction and Victor Sen Yung's scenes with little Ms. Risk are the best in the episode.

Pretty soon Bower joins them and so does George Mitchell playing her father-in-law with whom she's estranged. But it all kind of works out in the end and there's a mysterious Indian who hovers over the young girl like a guardian angel.

Women don't do well on the Ponderosa so I'm glad this all worked out. Watch the episode to see how.
