Editorial Reviews

In this dramatic two-hour episode, Charles takes Mary to an eye specialist when she begins to experience difficulty seeing. He is devastated to learn that she will most certainly lose her sight and for a while cannot bring himself to tell her the truth about her condition. When Mary does go blind, Charles and Caroline decide it would be best for her to attend a special school in Iowa. Although reluctant to participate and learn in the beginning, Mary develops a special bond with her teacher, Adam Kendall that changes her outlook on life. Mary becomes an excellent student and is invited to stay on as a teacher. This DVD has been restored using state-of-the-art color correction, picture enhancement and noise reduction technologies.

In a very unclear and probably intentionally confusing marketing move, this and all of the other "2-hour TV special" Little House DVDs being released separated are actually included on the Complete Season box sets being released by the same company. I purchased three of these "specials" before realizing that they were all 2-part episodes to be found on the complete season sets. This one, for example, can be found on the Complete Third Season, which is now available. While I don't have a problem with these 2-part shows being released separately, I don't understand the need for it and I really, really wish that it would be made clear somewhere on the packaging. Considering that these single disc releases have no special features, this is the worst example of DVD "double dipping" I've seen in a long time!!

Hands down, "I'll Be Waving as You Drive Away" is a classic in the "Little House on the Prairie" series and is something you'll definitely want to see if you're a fan of the show. Indeed, it is a critical turning point, both on the show and in the true-to-life books, and it launches some drastic changes in the entire Ingalls family. When fifteen-year-old Mary is stricken with blindness, it is her initial denial and her family's fear and guilt that makes for a very emotional first few months. Mary's parents send her to a top-notch school for the blind, where she refuses to learn at first but is pulled in the right direction by her patient teacher Adam Kendall. In time, they form a loving bond that will last forever, and Mary's character matures a hundred times over through her experience.

This is a beautiful episode, and it is easy to see why actress Melissa Sue Anderson was nominated for an Emmy for her performance here as Mary. This entire show is filled with many memorable, touching, and sometimes shattering moments that test a family's strength and inspire you. Anyone who takes the time to appreciate this wonderful show will definitely see that.

As some of you may remember, this single-episode DVD was released
a few years ago, back when Seasons 1 and 2 were brought to DVD for the first time. This episode, along with the pilot, "Journey in the Spring," "As Long as We're Together," and "No Place Like Home" all got their own individual DVD's. Many have criticized this as being a bad case of double dipping, which may be true, but it may also have simply been an attempt to accommodate those who didn't want to invest in the $50-per-season DVD sets and were content with just having some of the standout episodes for a lower price.

Wonderful episode, superb TV series...highly recommended.

I really like this dvd!This tells the story of when Mary Ingalls goes blind and goes to the blind school in Iowa!It is kinda sad,but it is still good!

It has two episodes,and heres what they are about:

I`ll Be Waving As You Drive Away(Part 1)-When Mary starts having trouble seeing,Charles is devastated to learn that she will go blind completely in a matter of time.One morning when she wakes up,she can`t see...she had went blind over night.Charles and Caroline convince her to go to a blind school in Iowa.

I`ll Be Waving As You Drive Away(Part 2)-Mary goes to the blind school in Iowa.At first she hates it;being away from her family and all.But then she creates a special bond with her teacher,Adam Kendall,and then creates love.She does not know that this man will become her husband in a later season.She also decides to still try and become a teacher,like Ma always dreamed she would!

Well,theres my review of this Little House dvd!Hoped it helped!If you`re not confortable about bying just this one two-part episode for 13 dollars,I reccomend getting the complete 4th season on dvd,which contains this episode,and the rest of season 4!

This is televison at its BEST in the 1970's and LHOTP at its BEST!!!!! the acting is superb and this is the season finale for season 4, this is also the most pivotal point in the LHOTP storylines. the episode is all about Mary going blind and how the Ingalls deal with Mary's blindness. 5 stars out of 5

Two of the finest hours in Little House history. The two hour special begings with Mary slowly going blind and the town of Walnut Grove in grave danger. Charles must bring a broken hearted Mary to a blind school. Little does Mary know that her new life has just begun. She enters a dark new world, but comes out seeing life in a new light. Her teacher, Adam Kendall, at the school shows her how to see with her hands, as well as with her heart. He opens her eyes and teachs her not to feel sorry for herself just because she can not see.
It's about closing your eyes and finally being able to see. Mary's dreams of becoming a teacher and finding real love finally come true.
Melissa Sue Anderson gives a stand out performance.

Once again I like the stories of this family and the writer and helps to remember what TV once was clean entertainment rather than the sinful unreal and hellacious things on now.

All 9 Seasons of Little House on the Prairie provided wholesome entertainment for the whole family... God is mentioned in nearly every episode and people are encouraged to have love, compassion and understanding of each other. You just can't find entertainment like this on DVD or TV anymore.. :-) If there were more than 5 stars to rate Little House on, I'd make it the BEST!!
