Narratively, the Disney-produced 2004 miniseries Little House on the Prairie retraces the footsteps of the acclaimed prime-time, nine-year TV series of the same title - albeit in a more abbreviated version. Like the 1970s series, this four-hour Disney adaptation takes as its source the beloved books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, roman-a-clefs about growing up on the rugged American frontier during the nineteenth century. It opens with the arrival of the Ingalls family in Minnesota during the 1870s - father Charles Ingalls(Cameron Bancroft), mother Caroline Ingalls (Erin Cottrell), and daughters Laura Ingalls (Kyle Chavarria) and Mary Ingalls (Danielle Ryan Churchran) - and moves ahead in time as the young girls come of age. Little House on the Prairie originally aired on ABC as episodes of The Wonderful World of Disney.
