Storyline

A teary eyed Cindy ultimately tells her parents why she's been crying and why she didn't want to talk about it: the kids at school, but particularly an older boy named Buddy Hinton, have been cruelly teasing her about sounding like a baby because she lisps. Her parents tell her that she'll outgrow the lisp, but that practicing tongue twisters might help. Later, when Buddy's teasing continues, Peter comes to her rescue. But Buddy wants to get into a fight with Peter, who refuses in part because Buddy's bigger than him. So now Buddy is picking on two Bradys, who he calls "Baby Talk" and "Peter Chicken". Mike's advice to Peter to reason with Buddy escalates matters. Once Mike meets Mr. Hinton and Carol meets Mrs. Hinton, they come to understand why Buddy is the way that he is.

Additional Fact of Russell Schulman & Susan Olsen. They were in different Westerns, before this "meeting"!
21 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Both of them, as they appear as "bitter rivals" in this episode, as it starts. Earlier, in their careers, each of them was as a guest-star in a current western, but a different show and program. 'Russell Schulman' (qv) earlier appearance was in 'Lorne Greene' (qv)'s show, once in 'Bonanza' (qv). Early 1960's, 'Susan Olsen (I)' (qv) was a guest-star in an episode of 'James Arness' (I) (qv)'s program, of "Gunsmoke" (qv). The character, she played, in her first appearance, was bit by a diamandback rattlesnake, I believe her character role, "Marieanne", nearly died, from the rattlesnake's venomous bite, which is titled "Abelia". Its address at IMDb is http://www.IMDb.com/title/tt0593978/ Or the appearance and number is _"Gunsmoke" (1955) {Abelia (#14.8)}_, which originally aired on Monday, November 18th, 1968. She was also in Gunsmoke's, _"Gunsmoke"(1955) {A Man Called 'Smith' {#15.6})_, her role, in it was "Marieanne", also. Its IMDb immediate address link is http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0593971/ which its original air date was 49 weeks later, on Monday, October 27th, 1969. 'Russell Schulman' (qv)'s only western appearance, as of now, was in _"Bonanza" (1959) {Abner Willoughby's Return (#11.13)}_ (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0529493) and it originally aired on Tuesday, December 21st, 1969. His character role name was "Charlie Sprague" and it is currently not high-lit.
