Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Laura (Melissa Gilbert) and her friend Jonah (Shane Sinutko) find some shiny metal particles during a fishing expedition. Convinced that they've struck gold, the youngsters begin to imagine what it would be like to be rich beyond their wildest dreams. Before long, several others in town have succumbed to "gold fever" -- and like Laura and Jonah, they're in for a humongous letdown. This episode was originally scheduled to air on October 22, 1975.
