Lois May Bascomb and Her Daddy
27 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode aired on January 11 1973 with this opening. Most of us on Waltons Mountain prided ourselves on our friendly hospitality, our family's good name and our dignity as individuals. However, in a remote hollow lived a man named Lutie Bascomb with his daughter, Lois May. If Lutie prided himself on anything, it was his cussedness. The show starts with its usual view of roaming shots from a top of Waltons Mountain. From a top of these mountains, you can see for miles and miles. Down at the bottom of the mountain Lois May Bascomb is late for school for the third time this week. Miss Hunter tells her that her excuses are getting old. Back at the Waltons home Olivia and Grandma are working on new chair covers that they made by themselves. After they get one chair cover, the two Waltons men of the house comes in looking for lunch. Olivia wonders if John notices anything different and the men don't. Grandma tells Olivia that maybe if we feed them it will improve there eye site. After school, John Boy catches up with Lois May and starts walking with her when there approach by Lois May father Lutie Bascomb who tells Lois to get home and for John Boy to stay way. While on his way home, he stops at Ike Godsey's local store. When John Boy walks in, he sees Ike beating an old table with a chain. Ike decides that he can sell old beaten up wood furniture as old antiques. John Boy asks Ike if he can help because he wants to buy a new dictionary. The only problem is that when John Boy gets home, Miss Hunter and his parents are waiting for him in the living room. The next day in school, Miss Hunters starts talking about primitive man when Lois May gets up and starts to walkout. She tells Miss Hunter that her daddy told her that if her teacher starts talking about that junk again that she's suppose to walkout and return home. Lois May tells her daddy about what Miss Hunter told her in class so her day heads for the school When Lutie Bascomb gets there, he gets into a confrontation with Miss Hunter and he warns her that he will have her job for this. The question is, how far will Lutie Bascomb go to settle his differences with Miss Hunter? Another good episode especially with the beautiful roaming shots of the mountain, so I give this episode 8 weasel stars.
