The Truth about Albert
2 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When A big, mean boy starts school at Walnut Grove, nobody knows how bad things are about to get. But the minute Bart steps into the school, he let's everybody know things are about to change - and not necessarily for the better! Everyone soon fears Bart. He pesters little Clarence in the class, then tries to beat Albert Ingalls up on the way home. Laura goes in to protect Albert, knowing he's no match against the big kid. Almanzo comes to their rescue and punches Bart. This irks his father who tells Almanzo that kids should fight their own battles.

But the next day when Bart puts Miss Wilder in her place by assuring her she can't do anything about him but he can tell his father, Miss Ingalls bursts into tears and sends the children home. As usual, the school board does not side with the teacher and Miss Wilder finds herself resigning.

This is sad news for Laura, because now her chances of becoming Mrs. Almanzo Wilder have just been shot down!

But wait! Albert and Laura have come up with a plan that just may keep our beloved Almanzo Wilder in town - oh, and Miss Wilder as well.

This is a good episode. The fact a big boy like Bart actually falls for the werewolf idea always rubbed me the wrong way, but I love the scene with the rock, and the Almanzo scenes as well. Carri's acting is of course poor as usual, but the fact she reveals the truth in her under- developed, simple mind is quite funny...
