Editorial Reviews

Although the beloved family drama, Little House on the Prairie, ran its course in March 1983, there were three addition movies made due to popular demand.

Look Back at Yesterday (Dec 1983)  Charles Ingalls returns to Walnut Grove.  During his stay, he learns that Albert, a doctor in training, has contracted a blood disease that is nearly always fatal.  Also, an  economic recession that threatens to destroy the community.

Bless All the Dear Children (Dec 1984)  Rose, Laura and Almanzo's infant daughter, is kidnapped during Christmas.  The family discovers that she was stolen by a woman who was longing to have a child of her own. 

The Last Farewell (Feb 1984)  This final adventure finds Walnut Grove being purchased by an evil miner.  Rather than being thrown off their land, the townsfolk exact a more spectacular method of leaving their beloved town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best series in the history of television August 27, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
UPDATE 1-20-2014: Did you know that this series will now start to be released on blu-ray? Do an Amazon search for "Little House on the Prairie Season 1 Deluxe Remastered Edition Blu-ray". This is great news for all "Little House" fans!

(Updated) Series on a whole: 5 stars++. Stories on this particular set: 4-1/2 stars. Video quality: 3-1/2 stars. Extras: 4 stars.

Why would I call this the "Best series in the history of television"? ...because it's BIG in heart and soul, the characters and stories have TREMENDOUS depth, and it's not bogged down by the politics of your typical western, or typical show for that matter. The storylines could go anywhere, and focus on anyone, or anything. There didn't have to be a villain of the week, a murder, etc. Come to think of it, this is one of the most "murder-less" westerns I have ever seen. If people died, it was more from life's hardships in the 1800's than from anything else. It may not have ended anywhere near as well as it came in, but when you look back at the series on a whole, I would still rank this as being the best of all TV series, and for a number of reasons.

The appeal of this series is much broader than most people give it credit for. The show wasn't just for little girls, as anyone looking at the cover of one of the Little House books might conclude. It was more a show about how to deal with the unexpected, with changes in life, and how to get along with your neighbors. There are life lessons to be learned here for everyone, from little girls to old men.

I doubt that we will ever again see a show quite like this, which so graciously teaches the lost values that we need in times like these.

5.0 out of 5 stars This would make a great Christmas gift! November 26, 2006
By JGC
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am so happy that these TV movies of "Little House On The Prairie" have found a new home on DVD. These are such beautiful and heart-warming movies. I have seen them many times on TBS as a child growing up. But I do not believe they have been shown on TV Land or The Hallmark Channel, making these tales very rare in recent years. This DVD is coming out at the perfect time because it would make a great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer.

These are the TV movies included on the "Little House On The Prairie - Special Edition Movie Boxed Set:"

Look Back To Yesterday (original air date: December 12, 1983)
Charles comes home from the big city to Walnut Grove to try to get the farmers to share their crops. He brings his oldest son, Albert. While in Walnut Grove Albert displays mysterious medical symptoms. Charles brings Albert to a specialist and finds out that he has a serious disease. This is actually a very sad episode, so be warned. Some say that Albert died in this episode, others say that he was able to beat the disease and go on to fulfill his dream of becoming a doctor. What happens to Albert is never stated, instead the movie lets the viewer form their own conclusions.

The Last Farewell (original air date: February 6, 1984)
Charles and Caroline return to Walnut Grove to learn that somebody else owns the town and wants everyone to leave Walnut Grove. The townspeople decide that the person can keep the land but they own the town. Allison Arngrim (Nellie Olson on the original series) has a cameo as a telephone operator.

Bless All The Dear Children (original air date: December 17, 1984)
This was actually a Christmas-themed movie. (Didn't "Little House On The Prairie" always have the best Christmas episodes?) Laura and Almanzo's baby daughter Rose is kidnapped while they are Christmas shopping.

Michael Landon was a genius and no one compares to the very high standards that he always set!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you for not blowing up the church!!! February 14, 2007
Format:DVD
If you are a big Little House fan then you have to have the box set to complete your collection. After the show ended its nine season run in 1983, Michael Landon came out with three movie specials which are in this box set. It was a great way to finalize the series, because the last episode of season nine didn't give us closure and it's my guess that they probably didn't know they were getting cancelled when they completed filming for season nine.

"A Look Back to Yesterday" has us saying good-bye to Albert Ingalls as sadly, he has an incurable blood disorder (I think similar to leukemia). One grave error that they make in season 9 is that when Albert comes back to Walnut Grove with Charles and goes through Morphine Withdrawal, at the end of the episode, Laura narrates and says that Albert comes back to Walnut Grove years later as doctor. This can't be true if he dies. Anyway, it's really touching movie.

"Bless All the Dear Children" is about the kidnapping of Laura and Almanzo's daughter Rose at Christmas. Touching, you'll want to watch it as a holiday special each Christmas.

"The Last Farewell" is indeed just that-the real ending of the Little House series. A greedy land developer buys the land that Walnut Grove sits on. Ma and Pa come back to Walnut Grove for a visit. And after a valiant stand by the towns' people, they realize they cannot save the town from this greedy man taking it over and decide to blow up the town because he may have taken over the land the town was on but the town's people built the building that were there. It was very sad to see them blow the town up at the end. Thank God they didn't blow up the church though.
