Episode #101H Duration: 51:27 STEREO TVG

When Anne Shirley arrives at the Cuthbert's farm on Prince Edward Island, called "Green Gables", she is a precocious, romantic child, desperate to be loved and highly sensitive about her red hair and homely looks. In her own unique headstrong manner, Anne manages to insult the town matriarch, Rachel Lynde (Patricia Hamilton) in a dispute over her looks; smashes her slate over Gilbert Blythe's (Jonathan Crombie) head ... when he calls her "carrots" during her first day of school; and accidentally dyes her hair green in an effort to turn her red hair black and salvage her wounded pride. Marilla Cuthbert is shocked and beside herself to know how she will cope with this sensitive, headstrong child so desperate to fit in. But shy, gentle Matthew is always there to defend Anne and hold her up on a pedestal.

Episode #102H Duration: 52:08 STEREO TVG

It seems Anne is destined to cultivate disaster. She becomes "bosom" friends with Diana Barry (Schuyler Grant) from across the pond and succeeds in getting Diana drunk by accidentally serving currant wine instead of raspberry cordial, at a tea party. Diana's mother (Rosemary Radcliffe) and the dour townsfolk turn on Marilla for making the wine in the first place. Hence Anne moves from one mishap to the next as her wild imagination and far-fetched antics combine to constantly bring trouble onto her shoulders.

Episode #202H Duration: 2:00:00 STEREO TVG

Anne may be all grown up, but she still has a knack for finding trouble, and her misadventures follow her to Kingsport where she learns that the town aristocrats, The Pringles, are completely opposed to her. On the first day of school, she manages to insult the school principle, Miss Brooke; she mistakenly orders a bag of firecrackers thrown into the fire; and attempts a bicycle rescue by crashing through the roof of a locked tool shed. Her students, most of them Pringle girls, make every effort to disrupt Anne's classes. Anne, however, perseveres and finds an ally in one of her students Emmeline Harris. Anne becomes intrinsically involved with the entire Harris clan including Emmeline's invalid grandmother Mrs. Harris, and with her handsome widowed father Morgan Harris. Through the course of the school year Anne succeeds in winning over the Kingsport establishments as well as gaining the respect of her students and the friendship of Miss Brooke. Homesick for Green gables and Marilla, Anne returns to Prince Edward Island when summer arrives. Gilbert Blythe has also returned; but has scarlet fever and is deathly ill. Gilbert's sudden illness forces Anne to re-evaluate her true feelings for him. Over the summer, Gilbert slowly recovers from his illness. He comes to Anne once more and this time she accepts him as her own and gives her heart completely.
