  • Trivia

    • At the beginning of the episode, Jeb Carter makes a comment to Jenny about how if she went into the "Wild Boy" tent, he'd hold her hand so she wouldn't be scared. Even under Little House's squeaky clean standards, it's clear as day that Jeb likes her, just as he indicated in the season premiere Times are Changing, and yet this is the last time in the series that the audience senses that. That fairly underdeveloped story arc was dropped at this point and never worked with again.
