Based on the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder, the TV show centers around a hard-working frontier family; Charles (Michael Landon) and Caroline (Karen Grassle) Ingalls and their three girls -- Mary (Melissa Sue Anderson), Laura (Melissa Gilbert), and Carrie (Sidney and Lindsay Greenbush). Other memorable characters include Doc Baker (Kevin Hagen), Reverend Alden (Dabbs Greer) and the Oleson family (Richard Bull, Scottie MacGregor, Alison Arngrim, and Jonathan Gilbert), owners of the local mercantile.

The series has one of the most memorable series finales in TV history.
