Summary: Danny Kidd is a prisoner on a chain gang and through a combination of circumstances he comes to save Joe’s life after he is dragged by a spooked horse. Joe takes an interest in the man who has been in prison for thirteen years. Ben uses his clout to have Danny released from Yuma State Prison into his custody and Joe is personally responsible for Danny. However, Danny’s jail house mentality makes it difficult for him to adjust to “civilian” life. But, like a true friend, Joe stands by his side as Danny makes the difficult transition.

He was really good in this episode even if he looked somewhat older than the lad he was playing. Not that it mattered. He will be missed.

Loved the way he and Joe began to be pals and when the episode ends I like to think that friendship blossomed while Danny worked out his year on the Ponderosa.
Great to see Adam and Joe in their white shirts and string ties at the dance.
Favourite part? When Joe returns to the family after his fight with Danny (and after disobeying Pa by going off after Danny, on his own) and Ben says 'Sometimes, Joseph, you make me very angry' Only sometimes, Ben? LOL
Worst part? When Danny throws the soldier away. It was his only link with his parents and I think he should have held onto it
Little Joe forever
