This is a favorite of mine. Mrs. Olsen has a cold heart thats for sure. She could have given Lou a job without any problem. He could have even helped at " Nellie's". Its sad some people can't get past physical appearances to see the real person and/or issues.
This episode is a great one for young kids to see.

Mrs Olsen should have looked at herself in the mirror ......she wasn't all that attractive herself

This was very sad to see the discrimination, Harriet never seems to learn for long. Her bias against black people, , overweight people, (like she's thin) Indians, the list goes on. I'm glad it ended well, but hard to watch at times.

It's also very similar to a Bonanza episode, "It's a small World"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0529587/

Circus midget and new widower George Marshall struggles to deal with the prejudice of Mr. Flynt, the town's banker, when he refuses to hire him despite Ben's recommendation.

Director:
Michael Landon
Writer:
Michael Landon
Stars:
Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker and Michael Lando

Some other borrowed themes:
Several of the episodes written by Michael Landon were recycled storylines from ones that he had written for Bonanza. Season two's "A Matter of Faith" was based on the Bonanza episode "A Matter of Circumstance"; season five's "Someone Please Love Me" was based on the Bonanza episode "A Dream To Dream"; season seven's "The Silent Cry" was based on the Bonanza episode "The Sound of Sadness"; season eight's "He Was Only Twelve" was based on the Bonanza episode "He Was Only Seven"; and season nine's "Little Lou" was based on the Bonanza episode "It's A Small World."

She never does learn for long. At the end of the episodes where she does learn it's moving, but then she's back to her old self again.

Yes, I suppose if she became "too good" they couldn't write all the funny and not too funny things that come out of her mouth. I just felt they should remember a particular lesson and not use it again. To be fair though, "sometimes" it does take a few times before something sinks in when it is so much a part of you.

This is a good lesson for anyone. Just because, Lou is small adult. He should get any kind of job, he want. Not just at the circus. On The Waltons. His character played in the circus. He give John Boy, The Moby Dick book.
