Thanks to the interference of Mrs. Oleson (Katherine MacGregor), Walnut Grove's schoolteacher Miss Beadle (Charlotte Stewart) is replaced by Mr. Applewood (Richard Basehart), a harsh disciplinarian. Wrongfully convinced that Laura (Melissa Gilbert) is a troublemaker, Applewood (or "Crabapple," as he is known to the kids) mercilessly persecutes and punishes the girl, finally expelling her for the mischief perpetrated by another child. Laura's father, Charles (Michael Landon), takes a hand in matters to prove that the Walnut Grove schoolhouse was better off with Miss Beadle.
