* EasterEgg: A bizarre reverse example. The theme for ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'' was borne from a one-off composition used in Season 12, Episode 17 "Top Hand", which is almost identical. If you listen to the episode after watching the latter series, you'll easily recognize the prototypical version of the theme. This episode aired in 1971, and ''Little House on the Prarie'' debuted a few years later in 1974, and this episode, having been produced not too long ago, stuck out because of its appealing instrumental track and received the honor of bearing witness to the theme tune of the new show.

* CreatorBacklash: Pernell Roberts, a stage actor doing TV for the first time, was not prepared at all for the grueling filming schedule, and also wasn't shy about publicly complaining about the show not living up to his hopes, especially his confusion that three guys in their 30s were still completely beholden to their father. He left after six seasons, with only a few guest spots afterwards.
