Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie is a 2005 family western television miniseries directed by David L. Cunningham. It is a six-part adaptation of children's novels Little House in the Big Woods (1932) and Little House on the Prairie (1935) by Laura Ingalls Wilder. It was broadcast on ABC as part of The Wonderful World of Disney anthology series. It is also partly inspired by the TV series of the same name.


Differences from the books

There were several changes in this adaptation from the narrative in the books:

  • The biggest change is omitting Laura's younger sister, Carrie, from the story.
  • According to the book, the two horses were traded to the man in Iowa, while this adaptation tells that Pa shot one and traded the other for Pet and Patty.
  • The meeting between Pa and Mr. Edwards was added to this adaptation.
  • In the book, Mr. Scott was the one who helped Pa dig the well, not Mr. Edwards.
  • In the book, Mr. Edwards did chores for the Ingalls while Pa went to town, while Mrs. Scott attended them while they were sick.
  • The Indian war dance was changed heavily, to the settlers building the stockade, instead of just letting it go without a fight, as the book says.
  • The Ingalls see a wagon that is not moving filled with sick people at the end of the book, while this adaptation portrays this at the start.

Home media

The miniseries was released on DVD on March 28, 2006.
