5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent October 1, 2005
A Kid's Review
Little House on the Prairie is THE BEST SHOW, so I was so happy to find that it's being released on DVD! I am very pleased with Season 3. The quality is pretty good, and there's finally a scene selection in this one. There are 19 episodes in all, on 6 discs. If you are a fan of Little House, you should definately buy this DVD set. I also recommend introducing it to your children, as this show would make a good influence on them, unlike many shows on TV now. Here are some short descriptions of the episodes:

1. The Collection- When Reverend Alden gets sick while collecting donations, and ex-convict named Caleb Hodgekiss offers to get the donations from Walnut Grove for him. Caleb plans to keep the money himself, but he decides to do the right thing when he sees how nice the people of Walnut Grove are.

2. I'll Ride the Wind- Mary and Mr. Edwards son, John Jr., have fallen in love and want to get married. Though they both get the approval from their parents, John must decide whether to accept his scholarship to college or to stay with Mary.

3. Bunny- After mistreating Laura's former horse, Bunny, Nellie falls off the horse and is paralyzed. Laura feels very guilty and thinks that it's her fault, so she does all of Nelle's schoolwork for her...until one day Laura discovers that Nellie has been faking her injuries.

4. The Race- Now that Mr. Oleson has given Bunny back to Laura, she is training Bunny for the horse race. Mrs. Oleson purchases a thoroughbred for Nellie to ride. Although on the day of the race, Bunny gets tired out because Laura had to fetch Doc Baker, Laura decides to race against Nellie anyway.

5. The Monster of Walnut Grove- On Halloween night, Laura sees Nels chop of a mannequin's head.

1.0 out of 5 stars MISSING SCENES November 5, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a HUGE fan of "Little House on the Prairie"....I am very displeased with the complete season 3....First of all the episodes are not in the order they originally aired...alot of them are out of order. The video quality of some of the episodes is very poor. For example on the episode "The Monster of Walnut Grove" especially the scenes at night are very grainy and almost like a reddish black color. The part about the dvd I am most upset about is there are 2 missing scenes on the episode "The Race." They were edited out, but you can't fool a fan that has watched the episodes numerous times. There is a scene edited out where Laura and Mary are walking to school after Pa found out that Mary did some of Laura's homework. Laura says to Mary "sorry I got you in dutch" and Mary responds "That's okay just beat Nelly Olson Saturday".....There is also a scene edited out of the Ingalls' having dinner where Laura is only eating her vegetables to keep her weight down for the race. Ma can't wait till the race is over and things get back to normal, but Pa is happy because he can have Laura's share of chicken and dumplings.
To the studios credit they do seem to be trying to improve some things. There are now chapters in episodes so you can pick a scene without forwarding to it. And the pictures on the box and inside are pictures that go with that season. Earlier in season 1 and 2 they have pics that didn't even belong in that season. I still feel these sets are being put together by someone who knows nothing about the show and the fans live with the mistakes! I am planning to write the studio with my concerns and I encourage other fans to do the same. I will also ask them if they want me to give them the correct order of episodes in Season 4 so they get it right. In season 2 and 3 they got them out of order.

My grandparents gave this to me for my 9th birthday. I have seasons 1 and 2. The Little House stories tell of life in the early days of our country. They teach you to do good to everyone and always tell the truth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great series, mediocre DVD May 1, 2004
By A Customer
When I pay hard earned money for a Boxed Set of a classic TV series like "Little House" I expect to get what I pay for. This is not the case here. Season One and Two were acceptable but Season III has the flaws described by so many others in previous reviews. Contrary to popular belief this DVD set is NOT REMASTERED OR UNCUT. In almost every episode there are scenes that have been deleted or are edited in some way or another. The video and audio quality is excellent. There are some classic episodes in this season....the best being "Bunny"...the one where Nellie falls off Laura's horse and pretends to be crippled...the payoff here is classic and wonderful! "To Live With Fear"....the two parter where Mary is seriously injured and must have surgery and the Ingalls have no money to pay for the operation. "Fred" the comical episode about an honary Billy Mrs. Oleson get it in this one!! "The Bully Boys" where Caroline is attacked by a trio of rough men. "Blizzard" where most of the town's children are lost out in a blizzard on Christmas Eve. "The Election" a very touching episode. And my personal favorite of the season "Little Girl Lost" where Carrie falls down a mine shaft. The series is wonderful and evokes wonderful memories. They just don't make them like this anymore. But the DVDs have got to get better. I'd rather not have scene index if they're going to edit out parts of scenes. These DVDs are supposed to be remastered and uncut. This is not the case with this edition. 5 stars for the series but 3 for the DVD. "Little House" deserves better.

I love the Little House series. Wish more shows were family friendly. Most shows today show the children outsmarting their parents or just acting like impolite brats. Read more

Why no closed captions on first 3 seasons of Little House?
Thanks so much for this useful review. I am hard of hearing and recently lost hearing and could not figure out why my closed captions on Little House were not working. You are correct it is much more relaxing for me to be able to watch television with closed captions on.
