If you can get through this silly episode which actually has little to do with Halloween, you are a true die hard fan of this series. The story deals with Albert and Laura dressing as Indians for a Halloween party at the Olesson's. Before the party, ma makes them take a nap (when did she ever do that?) and before you know it Albert starts dreaming. He dreams that he and Laura are mistaken for real Indians by some tribes in the area looking to go on the war path. Albert is actually mistaken for the son of a prominent chief. He and Laura end up negotiating between the Indians and a detachment of Cavalry sent to rescue the local white settlers. Eventually, he and Laura find themselves in a wagon being chased by and endless supply of Indians, and using gunpowder bombs to fight them off. Boy is this dumb.

You can't blame it all on Albert. Sometimes they really did use his character well on this show. But Little House by 1979 was suffering the same fate as all long-running family shows. After a while, the kids grow up and have to move on to other things. And new kids have to be brought in to keep the show centered around the parent-child dynamic. Things would get even worse in later years when James and Cassandra had to be introduced into the Ingalls household. And worse yet when Shannen Doherty had to be added as Laura and Almanzo's child. None of these children ever existed in real life. Animated shows like The Simpsons and Family Guy don't face this problem since their kids can always stay the same age.

Little House still had quite a few good episodes left at this point. This one isn't one of them. 4 of 10 stars.

The Hound.
