A daughter needs her mother
27 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

This episode focuses on the children of Walnut Grove. Laura and Willie get into a fight when Willie decides to do a reversal of Robin Hood - Stealing from the poor to give to the rich. Miss Beadle is very upset with their behavior and finally agrees to let the children put on a play.

Laura, Mary, and Nellie along with another friend named Ginny (one of those friends who's only in this one episode)decide to put on a play from Little Women. Willie is upset when Miss Beadle tells him he cannot put on Robin Hood, but he gets two older boys to put on a play with him - Tom Sawyer.

The story of Ginny is a bit sad. Her mother is broken-hearted over her husband's death and doesn't really want to live. Genny asks her to go to the play, but she says she has no time. A widower, Mr. Mayfield, has a thing for Ginny and her mother. Why he wants anything to do with such a bitter woman is beyond me...

The best part of this episode is when Mr. Mayfield finally faces Genny's mother and puts her in her place. Of course the whole problem is solved in about 45 minutes.

Comical releaf can be found in this episode. Willie's getting paint dumped on his head and Nellie's wig top to comedy.
