Were you obsessed with the Little House on the Prairie book series and TV show, based on the life of Laura Igalls Wilder? How much do you know about the wholesome show that made us all want to live on the prairie? Little House on the Prairie, which aired on NBC from 1974-83, is truly an American treasure. If you are a person of a certain age, you probably made it a point to watch the show every Monday night and have fond memories of growing up with the Ingalls family. If you're a bit younger, chances are you were still exposed to the series later on in syndication. Nowadays, it seems that there are not as many TV series being created with the whole family in mind. Many feature very adult themes not suitable for young eyes and impressionable minds, while kid-centric programming is often too immature and simple for an adult to handle. Thus, being able to revisit a classic family series like Little House on the Prairie is a treat for parents, grandparents and children alike. Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder is about the Ingalls family's trip from the Big Woods of Wisconsin to the prairies of Kansas. On their journey and in their new home they face wolves, disease, fire, and hostile enemies. The show was truly an icon of its time and remains beloved to this day. How well do you know the much-beloved classic? Are you willing to put your knowledge to the test? Try your hand at some trivia with our Little House on the Prairie quiz! Good luck!
