"Erin, disappointed by the negative reaction of her school-friend Harold Beasley, her "knight in shining armor", transfers her affections to a lost wild fawn, which she calles "Lance". She wants to keep it even though she's told it's illegal to keep a wild animal in captivity. After an escapade with a couple of poachers the Game Warden, Mr Hennessy, offers to turn the fawn loose in a game park, but Erin finally decides that it would really be best for the fawn if she turned it loose in the forest herself."
It was sad at the end when she had to give Lance up. But whenever I think of Erin, I always think of this episode. dunno why. Anyone else like this episode?

I liked the episode but I thought Mr Hennessy should have taken the fawn to a zoo or the game park where it would have been cared for and possibly taught to live in the wild and released later on. It was less than a year old,too young to have the survival skills to survive in the wild at that time.
When I was younger my cousin and his wife found a fawn,I believe the mother had died,they put the fawn in back of one of my grandparents shed,my cousin and his wife were living with my grandparents at that time. I don't what ever happen to the fawn,I guess my cousin let the wildlife people take it.

The thing I like least about "The Fawn" is Charles Tyner. I know he played the unlikeable character of the landlord, but the guy really creeps me out. Probably because of his role of Unger in The Longest Yard (1974). He just puts off a weird vibe.
Watched The Fawn again today on INSP. For me, this is an OK episode. It does have one of my television pet peeves built into the script. Me pet peeve is the misrepresentation of animals. The deer used in the show is not a white tail deer. It looks to be a mule deer. There are no mule deer in Virginia of even close to Virginia. Mule deer are found in the western US. Would it have been too difficult to come up with a white tail for the show?
