In the opening episode of Little House on the Prairie's fourth season, Laura Ingalls (Melissa Gilbert), grieving over the death of her beloved dog Jack, rejects the efforts by her father, Charles (Michael Landon), to replace her pet with a scruffy cast-off pooch named Bandit. Ultimately, however, Laura is made to realize the value of the "unwanted" in the world when she meets Kezia (Hermione Baddeley), an elderly eccentric who has moved into a burned-out shack and lives in a world of her own imagination. Merlin Olsen makes his first series appearance as farmer Jonathan Garvey.
