A long-running drama based upon the "Little House" series of books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, "Little House on the Prairie" follows the lives of the simple, farming Ingalls family: Charles, Caroline, Mary, Laura, Carrie and then Grace and the later adopted Albert, James and Cassandra, who settle into a quaint little house on the banks of Plum Creek near the small town of Walnut Grove during the late 1800s. Often narrated by Laura, the series follows her simple farm upbringing from her childhood until her adulthood with Almanzo Wilder with whom she starts a family of her own. While the series is based upon the Little House books (and thus the real life of author Laura Ingalls Wilder), it is a very loose adaptation, with mostly only key events and elements of fact surviving the transition from book to TV series, the most important being Mary's eventual blindness, and Laura's future. Several other fictitious (some factual) characters make up the friendly community of Walnut Grove, ...Written by

In some episodes, when Caroline moves the right way, one can see that she is wearing a bra. The series is set in the 1870s to the 1880s, and bras were not invented until 1912. See more »
I hate that Nellie Oleson!
Laura! Don't say "hate" - don't even think "hate"! I'm sure Nellie has her good qualities somewhere.
Your ma's right, half-pint. Now on the way home, we'll try and think of some!

I've watched almost every episode of Little House. I'll admit some of the episodes were meaningful and had a good plot, while others went completely off the wall and were completely random. Some of the flaws and annoyances in this television show, as most of you have probably noticed, are the "newcomers" to the small town of Walnut Grove who only appear in one episode and suddenly disappear and never are seen again in the town.. and Carrie's alien-like approach to things and acting weird and younger then what she really is. Other things the show could've done without is Michael Landon's constant rubbing of little children's hair at the drop of a hat and Laura's do-no-wrong attitude. On a scale of one to ten, ten being the best, I'd give Little House a 5. There are some episodes I'm fond of and some that make me nauseous. =)
