In 1974, NBC took a chance on producer-director-star Landon’s teledrama (based on the autobiographical children’s books by Laura Ingalls Wilder) about a struggling frontier family in Plum Creek, Minn., and ended up with a nine-season-long hit series. Twenty years – and countless reruns – later, Half-Pint (Gilbert)and Co.’s first season can still make you bawl in nearly all of the 23 episodes. Bonus: Little Carrie’s famous tumble in the opening credits is now even funnier thanks to exquisite digital restoration and the magic of slo-mo. EXTRAS The Collector’s Edition includes brief character profiles, a goofy Ingalls photo album, and a ”Little House” quiz that most fans will find too easy.
