Little House on the Prairie

Rage - S9-E4

Revealing mistake: When Laura picks up Baby Rose from Thomas Stark, the blanket is flipped up and you can see a plastic doll's leg, then when she goes into the bedroom, she has the real baby.

Country Girls - S1-E2

Audio problem: When Miss Beadle rings the bell for the class to come in on Mary and Laura's first day of school the bell doesn't make any sound.

There's No Place Like Home (2) - S5-E6

Other mistake: At the very end, Mr. Hanson is seen walking toward the church. Because of his stroke, he's slow and unsteady. We see several close-ups of his feet, showing how he's struggling. Two of those shots are the same footage. It's obvious, because you see that he drags his foot over a small stick in the road and stumbles - and in both shots, it is *exactly* the same.

Welcome To Olesonville - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: Mrs Olsen cleans up the old Hansen house to sell, however it was made the blind school years back and burned down, killing Mary's baby and Alice Garvey.

To Live With Fear (2) - S3-E17

Other mistake: When Mr. Edwards is leaving his family to go to work with Charles, he leans over to Alicia and says "you be good to your sister." I think the line was supposed to be for Carl, her brother, as Alicia doesn't have a sister.

Remember Me (1) - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Mary and Laura dive into the lake to rescue the puppies they have their shoes on. As they are swimming around looking for them they are barefoot. When the get out of the water their shoes are back on.

The Lord is My Shepherd - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: In this episode, in the various scenes showing the church, the bell is gone but in the next episodes it has reappeared again.

There's No Place Like Home (2) - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Lars Hanson hears the church bell ringing, he gets up from his bed and goes to look out the window. When he first gets up, his hair is completely tousled - definite "bed head." The shot changes to show him leaning out the window, and his hair is neatly combed. When the shot returns to the inside of the room, his hair is once again rumpled and untidy.

As Long As We're Together (2) - S5-E2

Revealing mistake: When Charles Ingalls plays his fiddle at the end of the episode, one can see from the movement of his hands that he is not really playing, but just pretending. (Also visible in every other episode where Charles plays the fiddle, but most obvious in this one.).

A Wiser Heart - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: When Laura pushes Mrs. Pierce, she lands in a pail of water on her buttocks, and her hair remains dry. The next shot is of Laura saying something, then in the very next shot we see Mrs. Pierce still sitting in the bucket, only now her hair is soaked. Since she landed on her behind, her hair should not have been soaked, and there was no time for anyone to pour water on her head between the shots.

The Campout - S2-E5

Audio problem: When Laura and Nellie are on the branch going down the rapids they can be heard talking, but their mouths either don't match with what they are saying or don't move at all.

Meet Me At The Fair - S4-E11

Revealing mistake: During the scenes when they are chasing the balloon in the prairie, the tire tracks from the camera car are easily visible.

I Remember, I Remember - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: Charles is delayed getting home on his wedding anniversary because a wheel on his wagon broke, he had no jack and he had to make repairs during a heavy rainstorm. Rain is still falling late at night and can be seen through the window when Caroline hears Charles arriving. She runs outside to greet him and suddenly there is no rain.

Steven Lee

Home Again - S9-E16

Character mistake: Mrs. Oleson, talking to Willie, tells "Albert" to go clean up his room while Mr. and Mrs. Oleson, Willie, and Albert are talking in the Mercantile. (00:39:20)

The Rivals - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: Laura almost bumps into the boy after they get out of the lake and she looks as if she wants to kiss him. In his point of view, he is standing further away from her. In the next shot she is a few inches away from him.

Fagin - S5-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Michael Landon is chasing the boy at the carnival, the shadows of the crew can be seen on the bottom of the frame as he is running.

Whisper Country - S4-E15

Deliberate mistake: When Mary gets to the school where she is going to be teaching, all the children are standing outside wearing shoes. However when they come in to the school they are barefoot. I have a feeling this was done to show how poor the community she was teaching in was supposed to be, but it looked like too cold and rainy of a day to let the actors be outside barefoot.

The Runaway Caboose - S2-E16

Factual error: Right as Michael Landon boards the train off his horse you can see a radio tower in the background. Radio hadn't been invented when the show was set.

The Campout - S2-E5

Factual error: This episode takes place almost entirely in the mountains. In Minnesota where the show is set, there are no mountains as tall as shown, particularly those that are snow-capped and rocky. The show was shot in California.
