Product Overview

On September 11, 1974, Little House on the Prairie made it TV debut, and it has remained an all-time American family classic ever since. The show was top-rated throughout its nine seasons on the air and has continued to be an on-air staple ever since on cable and in syndication. Based on the best-selling books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, this series captured the hearts of viewers around the world. While this is the dramatic, gripping story of a young pioneer family's struggle to build a new life for themselves on the American frontier of the 1870s, the show's timeless themes of love, strong morals and rich family values still resonate and inspire us today. Loyal fans will relive these exciting adventures, while new viewers will discover the Ingalls' unconquerable courage as they strive to build a better way of life.

This 60-disc set includes all 9 seasons, 3 special feature discs and 3 movies: Look Back to Yesterday, Bless All the Dear Children, and The Last Farewell!

Editors Note
Note This collection presents the entirety of LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE, the beloved 1974-1983 television series based on Laura Ingalls Wilder's novels about the trials and tribulations of a young family that settles on the wild American frontier of the 1870s. Michael Landon stars as a simple farmhouse patriarch who heads a household consisting of his wife, four daughters, and, eventually, a slew of adopted children. Look for a late-series appearance by a young Jason Bateman as a boy whose parents were killed in a wagon accident. Proof that a family-friendly primetime drama can indeed be successful and enjoy a prosperous run, LITTLE HOUSE should be credited with paving the way for such later moralistic hits as 7TH HEAVEN. Included among these 200-plus episodes are three feature-length TV movie events and the revamped ninth season--dubbed LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE: A NEW BEGINNING and considered by some to be a spin-off series--in which the focus shifted to middle daughter Laura (Melissa Gilbert) and her husband Almanzo in the wake of Landon's departure.
