Little House on the Prairie

Times Are Changing (1) - S9-E1

Character mistake: Almanzo says he hasn't seen his brother Royal in 10 years, but in fact he saw him not long ago as he looked after his 2 sons who were terrors, and at that time Royal didn't even have a daughter.

Suggested correction: Royal's wife was pregnant when he visited years before Laura had the baby.

What happened to Pearly Day? Almonzo's younger brother?

Not sure if this varied in the show, but in real life Pearly Day had six children and died in 1934 just a month prior to his 65th birthday.

Almanzo had 2 brothers. Royal and Jenny's dad, the one that was dying.

That may not work, unless Laura and Almonzo were not married yet at the time of Royal's first visit, but it is a good suggestion.

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)

Harriet's Happenings - S5-E8

Character mistake: When Eric is asked to spell repetitious at the spelling bee he spells it R E P I T I T I O U S... Alice Garvey says "correct" but it was incorrectly spelled.

Trivia: In the opening credits, the three girls are shown running down a hill that has several flowers growing on it. In reality, the flowers were fakes, and Melissa Sue Anderson (Mary) tripped over one of the fakes during one take and gave herself whiplash.
