Trivia

The only prime-time non-reality series to stay in production during the 1980 actors' strike and the 1981 writers' strike, which delayed both fall seasons. Michael Landon, representing NBC rather than a studio, negotiated deals with SAG and WGA to allow the show to continue filming under a separate contract, while the actors and writers continued to boycott the studios. (He did the same with the Writers Guild of America, purchasing scripts from the new members of the union, on the final season of Highway to Heaven (1984), which he owned. NBC didn't use his new episodes during the fall of 1988, though.) See more »

Goofs

There is no episode or part of one to show how the blind school Adam, Mary, and Hester Sue ran was taken over by someone else. This, however, will later be spoken about by Hester Sue in "Second Chance." See more »

Quotes

Mrs. Oleson: If God wanted me to talk with my hands, he wouldn't have given me a mouth.
Nelson "Nels" Oleson: [looks toward the camera very seriously] I guess even God can make mistakes!

Great and Cute Drama-series...
30 January 2003 | by (Miami, USA) – See all my reviews

This TV-series is a classic! I love this show. It's great and it's cute...the cast is great and every episode of the series it´s extremely good. Melissa Gilbert is a magnifficent actress, she played her role very well from the start back in 1974 to the end in 1984.
