This one was okay. I think it was wrong of the childrens uncle to try and take them away when they descided to say theire. I do understand that he want to be with them.He has ever right to do so.Glad to have had a happy ending.

Jed shouldn't have tried to take James&Cassandra away after they decided they wanted to stay with the Ingalls family. He told Charles&Caroline to let the kids decide and then he was mad and threatened to take them to court to get custody when Charles told him James&Cassandra wanted to stay with him and Caroline. I feel Jed was trying to bribe them into going with him by promising them he would buy them anything they wanted.

I agree

You must be watching these on the Hallmark channel. I've watched the same ones for the past week.

It would have been neat to see Jed just want to settle down in Walnut Grove and play an active roll in the town and the childrens lives. He was up in years so it didnt make sense for him to raise young children even though he had money to do it.

Poor kids...they really had bonded with the WHOLE Ingalls family. I'm odd but I like these episodes....I think they were well written.

I watch it once in a while on Hallmark. I mostly watch the DVDs. I am currently on season 1. I decided to have a marathon and watch my favorite episodes from each season. Season 9 is my least favorite season.

I thought if he couldn't live there, (Walnut Grove isn't for everyone) it would have been nice, with all his money, to leave them some, to give some to Charles and Caroline to raise them.
Did I miss something with that? It wouldn't have been charity, he was related and going to pass on soon.

He probably left a lot of it to James and Cassandra on his will.

Then why were the Ingalls struggling to raise them so much that they moved to Burr Oak, IA? I had forgotten about this episode--or at least that the possibility that Uncle Jed left the Cooper children his money. It then makes no sense that Charles had to move the family away. In fact, they would probably have been the second wealthiest family in WG if that happened.

Maybe Jed hadn't died yet? Idk, there are a lot of goofs like that on the writers part. Overall it was a good show, but they had there inconsistencies.

It may have been left to them in trust, and not been accessible until they turned a certain age.

Great episode! I started out liking Jed, but as soon as he began talking about how he wanted to have the custody of James and Cassandra I started to not like him as much. After they made their choice to stay with the Ingalls, and he said he was going to court against them, I really began to dislike him! I must say I was shocked at what he was saying.... I never would have thought that he would go that far! He only wanted them for his own selfish reasons, he never thought about what was best for the children. I am glad everything worked out in the end, and James and Cassandra got to stay with the Ingalls. James and Cassandra understood that money couldn't buy happiness! Thumbsup
