Another Fave!
23 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is another one of my favorite episodes. The humor is pure Michael Landon. Laura and Andy gang up to be detectives, but end up getting themselves in a lot of trouble. By the end, I think pretty much everyone is fed up with them.

Timothy is a young boy who has his heart set on being a doctor, but his father is recovering from a heart attack and can't work. Timothy can't find work either. They have to eat somehow...

My favorite part, of course, is the green hair. Attacking Mrs. Olsen in the middle of the night, dusting for fingerprints (a concept that, as far as I know, didn't exist yet), and turning Charles' hair green were all highlights of the show. That is just classic!

This episode is great from the first line to the last!
