Matthew Laborteaux and Micheal Landon
17 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I heard, from a Little House on the Praire extra by Alison Angrim, that Michael Landon was fond of Matthew Laborteaux because he had him play, in Little House on the Prairie, young pa, the first adopted son, and now he had Matt guest star in Highway to Heaven. Maybe because he wanted teen aged girls to get into the shows because Matthew is SO cute! Or maybe because he was fun and easy to work with. Matthew's character Abert has been given the nicknames Alby and Albertros by some one near and dear, myself. I didn't see the episode yet but I am sure it was groovy cubed! I can almost image Matthew singing David Byrne's song, Like Humans Do. The song is a lot like Matthew Laborteaux, catchy.
