Little House On The Prairie Trivia

The town was actually blown up in the Little House On The Prairie TV special titled, "The Last Farewell". Instead of allowing the "bad guys" to bulldoze the town, Michael Landon wrote the script so that the town's residents could "hold their heads high" by destroying it themselves!

At the tender young age of eleven, Shannen Doherty (Beverly Hills 90210) played Laura and Almonzo's niece during Little House's final season. She also appeared in all three "reunion" movies!

Michael Landon's daughter (Leslie Landon) appeared in the last 3 Little House On The Prairie TV Specials as Etta Plum. She also appeared in some regular episodes.

Melissa Gilbert was the youngest person ever to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!

Michael Landon is the only actor to have three TV shows run consecutively for 5 years or more each. They were: "Bonanza (1959-1973)", "Little House on the Prairie (1974-1983)" and "Highway to Heaven (1984-1989)".

The TV show was nominated for 11 Emmys and won 3. It was also nominated for 3 Golden Globes but didn't win any.

Michael Landon's first movie role was in "These Wilder Years (1956)" starring James Cagney, Barbara Stanwyck and Walter Pidgeon. He was the young man in the pool hall scene and was not listed in the movie's credits.

500 Girls were auditioned for the part of Laura Ingalls. Melissa Gilbert was the only one who got her screen test sent to be considered at NBC Studios!
