This serene family drama on Creator/{{NBC}}, which ran from 1974 well into the 1980s, was based on the popular series of [[Literature/LittleHouseOnThePrairie autobiographical books]] by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Michael Landon and Karen Grassle played Charles and Caroline Ingalls, a pioneer couple with three daughters: Laura (Melissa Gilbert), Mary (Melissa Sue Anderson) and Carrie (twins Lindsay and Sidney Greenbush). For its ninth and final season, the series was {{Re Tool}}ed as ''Little House: A New Beginning''; this was followed by three [[TheMovie TV movies]] to wrap up the characters' storylines.
