The Trial


Episode Info

Arnold's up to no good once again in this first-season episode of Diff'rent Strokes. This time around, the mischievous young man has been accused of putting the goldfish in the hottub. Rather than simply giving him a punishment, Mr. Drummond agrees to give the boys a lesson on the law by holding a trial for Arnold, complete with Mrs. Garrett serving as judge.
