TV Shows - Little House on the Prairie

Little House on the Prairie (often shortened to "Little House") is an American one-hour dramatic television program that aired on the NBC network from September 11, 1974, to March 21, 1983, bumping the long-running Adam-12 series to Tuesday nights. The show starred Michael Landon and chronicled the story of the Ingalls family living on a farm in Minnesota in the 1870s and 1880s. The Little House TV show was a loose adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder's best-selling series of Little House on the Prairie books. During the 1982-83 television season, after Michael Landon had left the show, the series was broadcast with the new title Little House: A New Beginning. A three-hour compilation special called The Little House Years was aired in 1979. The series itself was preceded by a two-hour pilot movie that first aired on March 30, 1974.

1 I enjoyed this show as a child, until around the fifth season, when the Ingalls family started adopting children. I thought this was supposed to be based on the life of the real Ingalls family? When they started adding fictional children, the show started to suck. -- Submitted By: (Retroguy2000) on January 2, 2014, 4:07 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Yeah, the rape episode is kinda creepy......and they made it a two-parter no less. I saw the first part when it was first run but to this day have never seen the second. If it wasn't for google, I probably still wouldn't know who the rapist was, or his fate. I also don't like how his identity wasn't revealed until after he was shot dead.....so we don't get to see him confronted, arrested, tried or hanged......just bang bang and it's over. Nice and neat and tidy as this series so often was. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on April 24, 2013, 2:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 The episode where Albert's girlfriend Sylvia gets raped by the man in a clown mask freaks ME out SO much! I have to leave the room when that scene comes on. -- Submitted By: (Katzi428) on March 1, 2013, 4:52 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I thought the football episode took place during that period when they lived in Winoka, not Walnut Grove. At least if it's the episode I'm thinking of where the kids who went to school in a barn played against the rich kids at the private school, including Mr. Standish's son. Didn't the barn kids win when a blind student, who was also strong as an ox, boosted / catapulted Albert over the goal line, thus "inventing the forward pass" (not really, but that's how they tried to spin it)? Maybe there were two football oriented episodes. I know baseball was around back then. The Brooklyn Dodgers franchise goes back to the 1870s. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on October 1, 2012, 3:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 The episodes that focused on issues more suited for say..the 21st century? i didn't get that one i saw where a coach came to Walnut Grove and stressed football on everybody..was football even a big deal in the 1870's?? -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on September 29, 2012, 10:04 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Actually JayD, there was a "very special" episode involving a blizzard, and I'm pretty sure it was one of the early episodes with Mr. Edwards (in his first tour with the show - pre-Merlin Olsen). -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 3:38 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 both believable and UNbelievable this show was. The plots in some of these episodes were pretty out there -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on June 22, 2012, 8:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Parker, The REALLY warped thing about 'Albert' was that it's been since revealed Landon created him as a tribute to the recently deceased son of family friends whom he even bestowed the boy's real name- and yet he had the character strongly implied as having died young. I wonder how the parents must have felt seeing their son's namesake die all over again? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 16, 2012, 5:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I was constantly amazed how in the early episodes of this, Laura seemed to think any situation could be solved by her running off into the distance. Her brother (Charles Jr., not Albert the invented one) dies, she runs off into the distance. She looses out to Nelly on something, just run over yonder there. Was that what they did in the 19th century when they were depressed instead of snacking because nobody could afford snacks? Also, while this was supposed to be based on a true story, Mary Ingalls never married. There was no "Adam Kendall" in her life. She basically went blind early in life and ended up a spinster. Nice way to spin a sad story, showing her leading a productive life being married and employed. Also, "Albert" never existed either, so don't feel bad that he gets leukemia and dies in one episode because that's as contrived (I like that word too) as he is. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 11:06 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Pa ingalls had to be the worst farmer on the planet. Unless dirt was a major cash crop in the 1880s -- Submitted By: () on February 29, 2012, 9:57 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
11 It's supposed to be set in Minnesota, yet I don't think I have ever seen it snow in Walnut Grove and I never knew the Prairies had mountains. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on January 5, 2012, 11:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Really this show is the textbook example of what can happen when a show's star wrests creative control away from the producers. I agree, the early stuff was good, but Landon turned the show into a preachy ego-trip. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 29, 2011, 1:46 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 The original TV movies in 1974, that preceded the series, were excellent! As were the books that it was all based on written by real Laura Ingalls Wilder. The series, however, got too "dramatic" and the innocent simplicity of it was lost. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on March 28, 2011, 9:54 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

15 The LHotP episodes I most remember are when Albert (in his angst--AGAIN!) feigns blindness so his "real Pa" wouldn't take from Pa Ingalls to use him as an extra hand on a farm; Albert's girlfriend is raped, impregnated and dies :-( -- Submitted By: (Understated) on December 30, 2010, 12:29 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
16 I'm white and I would never dream of cussing out a cop (though there have been a couple of times in my life I really wanted to)- for fear I would not only get the business end of a baton but also be calling my wife an hour or two later asking her to come down to the jail house to bail me out. Just sayin'. As for Little House on the Prairie, It was a decent way to kill a half hour or so. I always found it to be a little too sugary-sweet for my tastes, but there are worse shows on television. I met Dean butler once (he played Almanzo). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 2, 2010, 11:20 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 I beg to differ with the comment made by shanequia, Times have indeed changed, but we are not all the same yet. The justice system still don't see us the same. Just try to cuss out a cop, you'll feel me. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 11, 2010, 12:14 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
18 you a sweet person pelirojo but we must remember back then folk like me was not alowed to do important jobs. they just trying to keep it real for history sake.Hester sue had to be just the help. now look who president of the United States. times change and now we all the same. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on August 6, 2009, 5:37 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 I liked Hester Sue,too, and was sorry they had her become Mrs. Oleson's 'help' after the Blind School closed for the last time. She'd run her own blind school so why not have her be the teacher instead of Miss Plumb (Michael Landon's daughter) or have her run the post office? I thought 'LHTOP' was supposed to be 'progressive' but it sure didn't turn out that way for Mrs. Turhune! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 6, 2009, 5:02 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
20 The best thing about this one was Hester Sue, she my favorite on this one cause she look like my mamma back when she be sort of skinny . she was a good actress and always looked like she cried for real during the emotional scenes. wait a minuite the entire show was emotional scenes they all cry during every show no wonder why i stopped watching this one I never seen so many tears in all my life that must be where that creek come from. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on August 6, 2009, 11:34 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
