  • Mr. Edwards cares for a dead man's orangetan, trying to find a suitable home for it, because it was the man's dying wish.

    1.0
    This is perhaps the most unbelievable, and unbelievably bad, episode ever written. What would Mr. Edwards know about taking care of an orangetan? And everybody, except Mrs. Oleson of course, just seems to accept it and not think anything of it? I just don't buy it. Miss Plum is going to let a primate sit in class everyday?? I seriously doubt it. And the faked death scene? You mean to tell me that this man has come out to eliminate the animal, but doesn't take the body? Doesn't even look at it? Nonesense!
    I can't imagine why this was written. It's plain silliness from the get-go and I'm embarrased for Victor French that he had to do it. He was a fine actor who deserved more than playing second fiddle to an animal.
