Little Women II - Jo's Boys Episode 10 released!

"Won't they hurt 'em?" asked Nat, who lay laughing with all his might.

"Oh dear, no! We always allow one pillow-fight Saturday night. The cases are changed to-morrow; and it gets up a glow after the boys' baths; so I rather like it myself," said Mrs. Bhaer, busy again among her dozen pairs of socks.

"What a very nice school this is!" observed Nat, in a burst of admiration.

"It's an odd one," laughed Mrs. Bhaer, "but you see we don't believe in making children miserable by too many rules, and too much study. I forbade night-gown parties at first; but, bless you, it was of no use. I could no more keep those boys in their beds than so many jacks in the box. So I made an agreement with them: I was to allow a fifteen-minute pillow-fight every Saturday night; and they promised to go properly to bed every other night. I tried it, and it worked well. If they don't keep their word, no frolic; if they do, I just turn the glasses round, put the lamps in safe places, and let them rampage as much as they like."

- Little Men, Chapter 1

In this episode, the origins of the Saturday night pillow fights in Plumfield are explained.

This puts us 1/4th of the way through the series.  You probably will note by now that one of the more important characters from the novel is missing.  He will play a prominent role in the next few episodes.


  1. Thanks again for this WMT Gem!

  2. Now that you mentioned missing characters, in the Anime Encyclopedia it is mentioned that two characters with disabilities present in the novel are absent from the anime so as not to disturb the sensibilities of a conservative audience.

    I had read the book but I can not remember any of those two characters. I am certain though that Amy's baby daughter is not present in the anime.

  3. @Anonymous2: Missing are Dolly Pettingill who "stuttered badly" and Dick Brown who had a "crooked back".
