When Sam got kidnapped on Diff’rent Strokes
Episode: “Sam’s Missing”
This episode was scary ennough to give us nightmares, so we can only imagine how kids felt when they saw this for the first time. Arnold’s new stepbrother, Sam, gets abducted by a man who claims to need help finding his lost dog. In reality, though, this guy and his entire family keeps Sam hostage in an attempt to replace their dead son. The kidnapper forces Sam to call him “dad” and threatens to kill his real parents if he doesn’t cooperate. And to make matters worse, this goes on for an entire week before Sam is finally rescued by Mr. Drummond. It’s no wonder why parents obsessively tell their kids to never talk to strangers.
