An Episode I'll Never Forget

"A must-have for any real Christmas video collection. Each story told by the cast members of a long-ago Christmas is heartwarming and moving. A nice touch is the beautiful carols sung acapella by a choir as background music. For me, it belongs on that list of movies watched every year at Christmas...along with 'It's A Wonderful life', 'A Christmas Story', etc. Michael Landon will always be remembered in my home, as this movie will be played every year."

"This double feature's first episode finds Albert employed by a guest character we've never heard from before (and never will again): Mr. Singerman, a Jewish coffin maker. "The Craftsman" becomes typical Little House fare as Albert must stand against the prejudice of the Larrabee boys, who rough him up and call him a "Jew lover," and as Laura must confront her unwillingness to get involved. Wise Mr. Singerman teaches Albert some important lessons about work ethic and judging others, and any fan of the show expects the somewhat melodramatic ending. This episode features Don "Red" Barry as the ultra-bigoted Larrabee, and is largely watchable for one of the only full laughs ever heard from Nels Oleson in the history of the show. The second episode has more to recommend it than the first. "The Christmas They Never Forgot" is a beautiful holiday show that finds our favorite characters snowbound in the Ingalls home on Christmas Eve, swapping stories of their favorite childhood Christmases. Caroline shares her memories of a rainy holiday with a stepfather she didn't want; Almanzo remembers the year Santa Claus gave his brother Royal no presents; and those who have seen the premiere episode will recall, along with Laura, the Ingalls family's first Christmas in Kansas. But perhaps the dearest Christmas memory is Hester Sue's, as she recounts a year that she was convinced Santa Claus had "a white beard and a white face," and that black children never got gifts from him. Her father kept her faith alive with a sweet deception that she would not discover for many years later.
This Little House double feature earns an average of four stars-three for "The Craftsman," five for "Christmas They Never Forgot." How the Powers That Be choose which episodes to restore to DVD remains a mystery to me, but at least one of these is a true classic."

"My favorite show of all time is "Little House on the Prairie." It was always on television until just recently. I was so excited to find that Amazon.com had the DVD's to purchase. I want my children to grow up with the down home, wholesome, family show of Little House. I was so upset that it is no longer on my cable system's networks but now I know that I can find the love of the Ingalls' family right here on Amazon.com.
