"Little House on the Prairie" raised me. I loved Laura, and not just because we shared the same name. (BTW, Melissa Gilbert is one of my all time favorite celebrity interviews #blessed)
At first, I had a crush on Albert; then later it was Almonzo Dean Butler. My two favorite episodes are both two-parters: the one where Almonzo FINALLY falls in love with Laura, and the the one where he gets sick and he and Laura make up.
One person, though, who struck too close to home for me was this one - Harriett Olson. What a great job Katherine MacGregor did portraying this character! Some people loved her, some not so much.
"Little House on the Prairie" wouldn't have been nearly as good without her, though.
Rest In Peace Katherine MacGregor...
