High winds in Walnut Grove

Sundays at eight, the whole fam damily got together in front of the TV for some Little House on the Prairie action. I'm not going to look down my nose at it too much; there were some great episodes, particularly when Laura's baby brother dies and she runs away.

But therein lay the trouble. There was always something intensely dramatic going on - death, blindness, fire, etc. After a while, you were begging for comic relief.

Fortunately, someone on YouTube understood that. So they took this scene, where Jonathan Garvey (played by Merlin Olsen, post-Mitchell) and his wife are in divorce court, under the watchful eye of the Ingallses. And they dubbed in one small sound effect. And suddenly, everything's all right.
