Charles Ingalls: A Truly Devout "Little Rascal" (& in color film)!
11 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is among my all-time favorites, among all shows! I think of "Spanky" 'George McFarland (I)' (qv), when Charles tied up short tempered teacher, Harold Watson, in the outhouse, for being too strict to him Charles' Ingalls, as a first or second grade student!

Caroline spoke of four or five events to their daughters. To me it is all extremely humorous! Which is why I nickname Charles Ingalls a "Little Rascal", that was filmed in color. Earlier & often, Michael Landon was teased by brother, Hoss Cartwright, acted by Dan Blocker, (on Bonanza, in the 1960 & 1970 decades."Little Joe Cartwright", was often picked on by bigger & stronger brother, "Hoss Cartwright". Each time Sorrell Booke, aka "Mr. Watson" had Charles Ingalls in trouble, Charles was always ready for vengeance or revenge, for what ever occurred to him, by extremely strict school-teacher, Harold Watson!
