  • Michael Landon knew LH was on it's last leg - so he threw in this stink bomb for fun, I guess. (He wouldn't've pulled that in season 1.) Also, in light of the recent unpleasantness with orangutangs in the news, this makes for an especially bad episode.

    LHOTP is good fantasy - clean, romantic, healthy, 1970's-pop-psychology-progressive pioneers at their anachronistic best! But I turn it over to the "Flintstones" when that monkey comes on. In the first five minutes there's cute banter between Edwards and "Blanche's" old man, then the plot line sinks fast. This story could have been taken in some other direction besides Walnut Grove. Maybe trying to get "Blanche" a job in the circus or into a struggling zoo? But attending class with the kids and duking it out with Nancy are too too much. This is the only LH episode I won't watch.
