I Miss Little House On The Prairie

I don’t know how many of you recall this TV series but I grew watching and loving every episode. There were so many life lessons to be learnt from them and I’m sure many families wanted to emulate the family values of the Ingalls family.

The television program aired on the NBC network from September 11, 1974, to March 21, 1983. The casts included Melissa Gilbert, Michael Landon, Karen Grassle, Lindsay Greenbush, Sidney Greenbush, Scottie MacGregor, Melissa Sue Anderson, Jonathan Gilbert, Kevin Hagen, Alison Arngrim, Matthew Laborteaux.

I recall weeping when I heard Michael Landon had passed on from pancreatic cancer in 1991, and the last show of his which was aired here at the time in Singapore was ‘Highway To Heaven.’

There are not many TV series which can make an impact and touch everyone in the family from the youngest to the oldest. The lessons on family values, human dignity, courage, determination, surviving hardship and so much more! Perhaps another series worthy of mention would be 7th Heaven.
