Goofs

Stuffed toy bears weren't introduced until the turn of the 20th century. (It has never been determined whether Ideal or Gund was the creator of the "Teddy Bear".) Worse, the bear shown is of modern design. The prop master must have run to the nearest toy store and grabbed one. See more »

Excellent episode
11 May 2008 | by davilbrSee all my reviews

This is one of the most moving and touching episodes of "Bonanza." Of course, it was always a quality program and this production shows why it was so much more than just another Western.

Some may call it predictable, but it still tugs at the heartstrings and the ending is most satisfying.

Eleven year old Gabrielle is an orphan blind girl who has no family except for her embittered grandfather, living like a hermit in the mountains after spending time in prison for a crime he did not commit.

Atter initially rejecting her, his heart softens and he comes to the Ponderosa to claim his granddaughter and even spends time with the Cartwrights on Christmas Eve.
