"Season 6 introduces us to Ms Wilder, Almonzo and Perley Wilder, Nels Oleson's sister Annabelle, Caroline's father, and Nellie's future husband Percival. Season 6 contains 23 episodes and some of the best Little House on the Prairie episodes ever! It also contains some of the biggest tear-jerker episodes ever. I must admit, the quality of the sound and picture is not what I had hoped it would be. Very poor quality.

"I have waited SOOO long for this season to come out. It is the best season with my absolute all time favorite episode, "Sweet Sixteen." I can still remember watching that episode for the first time. I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I was that this episode is edited from its original airing. There are three scenes missing, they are small, but key! The one where Laura buys her shoes (with heels to make her look taller and older) and the one where she is determined to learn to walk in them! This is important because not too long after that we realize that it worked! Almonzo takes notice of her and she looks down at her shoes and tucks them uderneath her. I was really hoping that when the DVDs were released they would show the COMPLETE episodes and not the "edited for TBS" versions. I'm bummed."

"I have purchased all 6 seasons of Little House, and have the 7th season on reserve. If I were not such a fan of Little House, I would return these DVD's due to their poor quality and missing scenes. I kept feeling that a scene was missing here or there, but wasn't sure until I saw the "Sweet Sixteen" episode. As another reviewer reported, there is a complete segment of the show missing. We see Laura walking through the dry grass on her way to school and she stumbles ever so slightly as she walks. What is not shown is that directly before this clip, she has purchased a new pair of "mature" heeled shoes and had to learn to walk in them. Later, during their carriage ride home, "manly" seemingly sees a more mature Laura. Laura looks down at her new shoes, clearing feeling that they are responable for "manly's" new found interest in her. Having not seen Laura purchase the new shoes, a viewer might be clueless to this very important part of the story line.
I expected to have the entire UNCUT version of Little House. I am deeply disapointed to own a poor edited version of my favorite show. I noticed missing scenes in several of the other DVD's also. I gave the product 4 stars, simply because Little House is still, in my opinion, one of the best shows to ever appear on TV. But be aware, quality is poor and the missing scenes can leave you feeling discouraged and disapointed."
Once Again...Great Season But "Incomplete" DVD

"Little House on the Prairie may well have been at the peak of its run during this sixth season. I still remember as a kid watching this show from week to week with new interest in seeing how Laura was going to win the heart of her future-husband, Almanzo Wilder. Dean Butler was a great addition to the cast, and his commentary on this DVD is very good.
However, the problem that I have with this DVD set, as with Season 5, is that it is NOT complete. There are many scenes missing from a number of episodes. Don't you find it odd that virtually every other TV show that has made it to DVD is done so unedited?!? I've heard that NBC tried to pull the same thing with the first season of the Cosby Show until enough complaints to NBC forced them to make sure that all subsequent releases were, in fact, unedited.
It's a real shame that such a classic family show as this is not being given the quality that it should be. These "missing" scenes are not lost. I've seen them in re-runs on television.
This is the only reason I give three stars to this product. It's a definite five for the show itself. You have to wonder that if Michael Landon was alive, would he tolerate such tampering with his show?
Note: It seems that most of the TV series that are released through NBC Home Entertainment are edited. These include Little House, Cosby Show, and Highway to Heaven from what I've seen and possibly others."
