"This review refers to the Double Feature DVD(Goodtimes Video) of "Little House on the Prairie" Epsiodes "Christmas at Plum Creek" and "The Creeper of Walnut Grove"...Goodtimes Video has made another great transfer of two vintage episodes from the Little House series. Although two very different stories, both will leave you smiling.First up is a holiday classic episode. In "Christmas At Plum Creek",you'll feel the love as you may be reminded of "The Gift of the Magi". It is the first Christmas in Walnut Grove for the Ingalls family. Ma and Pa, Mary and Laura busy themselves trying to get just the right presents for each other. Their days are filled with joyous secrets, loving sacrifices, smiles and tears.Will Laura give up her beloved pony "Bunny" so Ma could have a stove? Even little Carrie will make your heart swell as she remembers the true meaning of the holiday.
This one includes the Olsen family....Harriet at her most Scroogelike self, Nels is affable as always, and mean ole Nellie!
And it's always a delight to see Mrs. Whipple make an appearance."The Creeper of Walnut Grove" is just plain fun. The youngins will love this one! Laura and Andy Garvey(a very young Patrick Laborteaux)form their own detective agency, when a serial thief is stealing food from the mouths of the good people of Walnut Grove. They set traps, which naturally backfire and leave poor Pa with green hair, Nellie and Wille covered in flour and Harriet,... well, lets just say you have to see this one for yourself! But Michael Landon is always sure to give us some poignant moments as well,... a young boy, studying to become the town's future Doctor cares for his proud father after a heart attack(try not to think about the fact that they fed him ham, eggs, and apple pie to restore his health..who knew about cholesteral back then anyway!)It's a fun episode, that includes the Garveys,Miss Beadle, and Reverend Alden who also provides us with a good chuckle in this one.Each episode runs about 45 minutes, so at an hour and a half(no need to flip the disc, they are both on the same side) this is a pretty good deal. The picture is nice and clear, with good color(a bit dated), and the sound is pretty decent in Dolby Digital Mono. These episodes are from 1974 and 1977, and no matter how often I watch them, they still make me laugh and cry!If you loved this series, you'll be happy to have this on DVD,to enjoy whenever the mood strikes. Go get those Kleenex, you Know You'll need em and...Enjoy.....Laurie"
