There have been many threads that reference the TV show Little House on the Prairie and the horrible things that have happened to the characters on a “family” tv show. I thought it would be amusing to see a list of all their misfortunes, when you add them all up it is clear some malevolent force was lord of Walnut Grove.
So from memory:
Only son dies in infancy
Eldest child goes blind
Wheat crop destroyed by storm
Eldest daughter’s child dies in a fire
Town wiped out by financial collapse
Adopted son’s girlfriend raped and dies
Daughter trapped in a mine shaft
Daughter trapped in runaway balloon
Daughters trapped on a runaway railcar
Jessie James invades the blind school
Farm put up for debtors auction
School childern released into a blizzard
God or the devil was really after them.
