  • Founders Day means fun, laughter and stiff competition for everyone.

    8.5
    It's Founder's Day in Walnut Grove and the Ingalls family are very excited about competing in several events. Charles wants to win the wood chopping and borrows a brand new axe to help him do it. Mary and Laura want to do well in several of the children's competitions, and even Caroline joins in the fun when Mary hurts her ankle and can't take part in the three-legged race with Laura.

    Guest star Forrest Tucker (from F-Troop) did a great job in this episode as a man, formerly a great woodsman, who is getting older and desperate to win the chopping events to prove that he still 'has it' and to maintain his pride. It was also great to see the whole town (except Miss Beadle) in this one as, being a season finale, it's nice to catch a glimpse of everyone, even nasty old Mrs. Olseon!

    Terrific episode to end the season on and one that can be re-watched many times without boredom or a sense of repitition. Great work!
