That's actually a cute picture of him as a young boy. (But he was still lazy, and I can't abide laziness.)

He definitely ended up being better looking than he was on the show.

wow....love the young b&w of him and the older picture. He just went through an ugly stage I guess in his teen years. Although I'm sure if you take the overalls off of him and put him in some 70's clothes he would have looked much better! LOL
At least Melissa didnt have to kiss him....YUCK!

Ya'll are so hard on poor Jonny! I didn't think he was that ugly! He was nice and respectful! Not everyone is perfect! I think she liked him because he was nice to her *and not as ugly as you make him out to be* besides beauty is only skin deap. I liked him; I thought he was kidna cute. I loved laura's sceam to wear her Sunday dress. Her face when she gets up the stairs! And she thought her parents didnt know..... :shifty: Laura's bonnet looked kinda funny with her blue dress. I feel sorry for Laura in this one; it must be horrible to like a guy and he doesn't know I she exists. Then the sweetheart tree. Oh horrer I would die if Jo..... :unsure: I mean someone did that to me... *phew* Whistle

Edit: HAHAH OH MY AHAHAHHAHAHAH!!!! ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL He said Golly Moses!!! ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL


Sometimes life throws you under the bus. You gotta hold on for dear life. Don't waste one single day.

==============================================================================================

I wonder how I find myself with the greatest boy ever! <3 He loves me in spite of my issues.

The episode is okay..........I just can't see what Laura sees in Johnny Johnson! He isn't very . . . . . . well, he's.........He isn't the sharpest ax in the shed! He isn't very handsome (which is fine if you have character!) he isn't motivated....He's just . . . . male. That's it. At least he's harmless. But it would have made more sense if he weren't seeming to be so lacking in grey matter.
Maybe that was the point. Maybe they didn't want there to be anything obvious about him for Laura to develop a crush on him. Maybe they wanted people to say "Why?". But I think little girls have a crazy habit of developing crushes on guys that aren't anything special, anyway. When I look back on it, I know I did, and I know I had friends who did that, too.

If I'm not mistaken, and those of you who can remember better than me please help here, but wasn't there a Johnny Johnson in one of Laura's books? Somehow I remember reading his name while reading one of her books.....:think:
He wasn't a love interest, just someone who lived in town and mentioned in her book.......Michael Landon just turned him into a love interest for the story...... :scratch:

This is supposedly the REAL Johnny Johnson. I took a picture of it when I was in Walnut Grove, but I am too lazy to look for it now. Smile So, luckily, I managed to find it online. Smile

I guess I am in the minority here. I actually like the episode. I think it is a cute episode. I personally think it is a lot better than "To See the World". That one doesn't do much for me at all.

I actually like this episode also. But then, I also (kind of) like The Godsister too. I know, I'm weird.

I think the real Johnny Johnson was really handsome. I think that Laura could have developped a crush on him. However, it was not the case. greenS Johnny Johnson was a not very bright Norwegian Walnut Grove cow's shepherd...And he was not interested in Mary, either.

I know. He isn't bad, is he? I kind of wish I knew what he looked like when he was a little younger. Probably just the same, but younger, right? grinsmiley He wouldn't have had the mustache, though, and I would like to see him like that.

Watched this one again.....I enjoy it, although it will not likely ever be one of my all-time favorites. But I do love the way that Ma and Pa deal with Laura. Except something Pa says does not make sense to me. He talks to Laura about her being jealous of Mary and says that he was jealous, too, because someone (meaning Johnny) was trying to steal his best girl. In the scene, he obviously means Laura, but in reality Johnny was not trying to steal Laura, so that part does not make sense to me.

Does everyone notice, too, that when Pa plays the fiddle while Carrie is going to bed he plays the ending "theme song" but just really slowly?

Yes, I've noticed that. I think that's an anachronism, as I'm pretty sure the theme was written for the show, i.e. in the 1970s rather than the 1870s.

BTW, here's a link to information about the LHotP theme music -- http://www.classicthemes.com/50sTVThemes/themePages/littleHouse.html. The closing theme is called "When I'm With You" and was composed by David Rose in 1974. The opening theme is called (hold onto your chairs, folks) "The Little House Theme".

I wonder how many TV shows have different opening and closing themes. Off the top of my head, I can think of All in the Family, Frasier, and 7th Heaven. I'm sure there are others. Actualy, I'm not sure about Frasier -- the closing might just be a segment of the same theme as the opening with lyrics. I was going to mention The Jeffersons, but I think the closing (the humming part) is just a variation of the opening "Movin' On Up" theme. Actually, these days, many TV shows don't have theme songs at all. They just come on at the top of the hour with a scene and then do the opening credits when they come out of the first commercial. I guess this is a trick to hook viewers at the top of the hour so that they won't switch channels.

I think that is sad...theme songs and the opening credits should be so good that it is what makes a viewer even start watching the show. I love good theme songs or fun ones.

GILLIGAN'S ISLAND, while it was the same song, had a different verse to close out the show. I think THE FLINTSTONES may have done something similar?

I think they don't do theme songs anymore because they don't have time for it. There are so many more commercials that if they did a theme song there wouldn't be much point of doing the show.

Maybe...but all the magic of the shows is lost . I don't think the reasons could be commercial, since they could always sell those theme songs, as they did formerly. And I don't really believe they does that for time reasons...What for time? We, watchers, enjoyed these theme songs as well as the show ITSELF, and waited for them. When we heard those tunes, we already knew our favorite show was beginning! Smile

I often wonder what Mary was going to call Laura when Laura told her to shut up after Laura called Mary two faced for being nice to Johnny's face, then saying other stuff behind his back.
