Little House On The Prairie Cast Reunites

The cast of “Little House on the Prairie” recently united to celebrate the show’s 50th anniversary, gathering for a nostalgic reunion and sharing their thoughts on the show’s lasting impact during an interview with Good Morning America.

Melissa Gilbert (Laura), Karen Grassle (Caroline Ingalls), and Alison Arngrim (Nellie Oleson) shared insights into the legacy of the series, discussing its spot-on portrayal of timeless values.

Reflecting on why the show continues to resonate with audiences decades later, Grassle highlighted the values, comfort, and meaningful messages that viewers find in its storyline.

“People are finding values, comfort and a message that they long for,” she said. “And I think, you know, it’s just simple human decency.”

Arngrim also commented, saying that while the show initially felt successful, its continued popularity over the past five decades is “absolutely mind-blowing” to her.

“It’s overwhelming, actually,” Gilbert also said. “I’m remembering so much, and so much of my childhood and so many wonderful experiences and emotional experiences attached to all of these people.”

Gilbert reminisced about her time on set, recalling the strong bonds formed with her co-stars. The cast also took a moment to honor Michael Landon, who played Charles Ingalls, acknowledging his significant impact on the show.

Gilbert described Landon as “magnetic” and praised his unique approach to working with the cast, treating them as equals while maintaining a parental presence. Landon unfortunately passed away in 1991 at the age of 54 after battling cancer.

“Our relationship immediately became parental,” she continued. “But he treated us when he worked with us like contemporaries, not like kids.”
