PostSubject: Did you know.... (LHOTP Trivia)   Wed Sep 20, 2006 3:08 pm

I thought it would be cool to list some interesting facts about Little House on the Prairie. For example, trivia and other stuff... this way, we can learn more about the show. :tapdance:

Some of these, a lot of people know... but maybe not everyone...


Okay, I'll start. :flower:

Did you know that Melissa Gilbert (Laura) and Jonathan Gilbert (Willie) are brother and sister in real life? They were both adopted.

A member in a german LHOTP-forum, I'm also a member in, got mail from Katherine MacGregor, who told her that she would move to an old folks home in a couple of weeks.
I thought this could be interesting to know.
