Did You Know?


This was the third of three "Little House" telemovie sequels, and the last story to be filmed, but not the last to be broadcast (it debuted during February 1984, while the film made before it, _Little House: Bless All the Dear Children (1983) (TV)_, aired ten months later, in December of that same year).

Even though there was a court order to remove the citizens of Walnut Grove, the U.S. army could not enforce it. Minnesota was a state, which meant the Army would have illegally been used for law enforcement duties. County deputies or state police should have been sent in to enforce the court order.

Charles Ingalls: I talked to Almanzo. He'd like to go back with us, till they get another homestead together. Poor boy cried like a baby.
Caroline Ingalls: He isn't the first one to have to leave and start all over. They'll make it. We did!
Charles Ingalls: That's right, we did.

The Last Psychotic Farewell
5 August 2015 | by (Carlsbad, CA) – See all my reviews

The cynicism of Michael Landon (and Hollywood Jews in general) is very apparent in this final episode of Little House (in fact, this was a TV-movie which aired after the show had already concluded, not the official 'final episode').

A land developer owns rights to Walnut Grove real estate and forces everyone from their homes. Disgusted with the idea, the townsfolk come up with a 'wonderful' solution: they will BLOW UP the town! This seems like a good thing to do to all involved -- no one protests that this prospect might be rather demented, as well as violent and destructive to the children.... "This is the way to solve any problem, kids. If you can't have something, DESTROY IT with vengeance and hatred so no one else can have it".

At one point, Half-Pint goes berserk and smashes dishes on the floor, followed by pulverizing all the windows in her own home. Um.... does anyone know if Doc Baker practices psychiatry, as it would seem Half-Pint is in need of some serious therapy.

What a terribly pathetic way to end a mostly beloved family series, besides being an extremely selfish final statement by executive producer Landon, who reportedly ended the series this way because he was enraged that in canceling 'Little House', NBC did not tell him anything about it until the last minute.
