Trivia:
The ending is slightly ambiguous, in that we do not see Albert die, leading some fans to believe that he somehow survives. However the implications of Albert's illness are clear and indeed, when asked about this issue many years after, Kent McCray (Michael Landon's production manager and later co producer) confirmed that the intention was that Albert dies.See more »

Inconsistancy, 18 April 2007
Author: RepMaj04 from United States

I'm glad somebody else noticed the inconsistent story line too. I asked my wife, "How could he be dead if he came back to Walnut Grove as a doctor later?" Other than that one error, I love this look back at a time before the American people were spoiled and soft, and knew the importance of God and country, hard work, and REAL hard times. Patriotism and unity were the American stronghold. It's sad to think that there may be no more Michael Landons or Victor Frenchs' in Hollywood, to remind us of who we are and how we got here.

I never get tired of Little House, or many of the old re=runs from the golden days of TV.

I was sure that Mathew Labeatereaux would go on to become a renown adult actor, but I called that one wrong. What happened to him?
