I love this movie! I watched it with my 10 year old granddaughter, and I told her that her mother (Laura -- guess who she was named after?) loved to watch this on TV when she was a little girl. I also think it is fairly true to the Little House books, which doesn't happen very often. The actors portray a loving family with very few possessions, but they are happy with each other. It's good to know that there are some wonderful DVDs out there for kids that aren't about girls being boy crazy or too grown up for their years. I think little girls should enjoy their childhood, and this movie recalls a simpler time in America. Highly recommended family film.

"I grew up watching the reruns of Little House on the Prairie every day when I got home from kindergarten. My mom taped them, so my family owns 170 of the 200 episodes, from Episode 1, "Harvest of Friends," to the final episode, "Hello and Goodbye." Somehow, however, we missed taping "Premiere," so when I bought this DVD, I had never seen it. Well, I was a bit disappointed that in two hours the Ingalls family never reaches Walnut Grove (I was looking forward to seeing introductions of our favorite characters!), but I'm still very glad to own this gem. I know from experience that VHS tapes degrade with time and many viewings, but DVD will last forever. The pilot introduces Mr. Edwards (with a much thinner beard!) as well as the Ingalls family and includes some memorable moments between Pa and Laura. Probably the best scene of all is the classic "Errand for Santa," featuring a snow-caked Victor French who braves a blizzard to get his Christmas gifts to their recipients on time. Overall, a beautiful beginning to an endearing show."

"This review refers to "Little House On The Prairie...The Premiere Movie"(Goodtimes Video DVD)
Get ready to go from a good cry, to a big grin and back again on this very enjoyable and heartwarming family TV program. It's the beginning of a classic series that stands the test of time, and should be shared with a new generation.
"The Premiere Movie"..a double length feature that will introduce you to the Ingalls family and their harrowing journey to make a better life for themselves. You'll also meet Jack the dog and Mr. Edwards(Victor French) for the first time. When Charles says "Caroline..were home...".have the kleenex ready! It stars Michael Landon(who also directed many of the episodes), Karen Grassle, Melissa Gilbert and Melissa Sue Anderson.
Goodtimes DVD has done a nice job of transfering these 70's TV classsics. They look great. Nice color and sound. There is some occasional flickering but a very enjoyable view overall. It's nice to be able to enjoy them whenever the mood hits and without all the commercials!.If you really love these stories, you may want to consider buying the 4 pack. It includes this one,a double length feature "The Lord Is My Sheperd"(Little Laura runs away to be closer to God),"The Collection"(guest starring Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash), and "Laura Ingalls Wilder"(Laura and Almanzo finally tie the knot), another double length feature.
You'll laugh, you'll cry!...enjoy...Laurie

Little House on The Prairie Remember Me
Great movie, but incorrect description of contents

"The description of this dvd states that the Premiere Movie plus the two hour episode Remember Me are included on this disc. However, when I received it I learned that only the Premiere Movie is on the disc. I'll keep it, since I love the show and it was still a good price, but the description made me believe I would be getting four hours of Little House, not two."
