To celebrate the 40th anniversary of beloved '70s series, Little House on the Prairie, eight of the show's original cast members reunited on The Today Show for the first time in 20 years!
It was particularly emotional for actress Karen Grassle, who played matriarch Caroline 'Ma' Ingalls, since she hadn't seen her onscreen family since 1991.
"I got tears in my eyes," the 72-year-old said after watching a video of the show's best moments.
"First of all, I'm sitting here with these three daughters, really for the first time since [Michael Landon's] funeral," she said of on-screen daughters, Melissa Gilbert (Laura Ingalls), Lindsay Greenbush (Carrie Ingalls with twin sister Sidney) and Melissa Sue Anderson (Mary Ingalls).
"And then to see them come running [down the hill in the video]...just kills me," Grassle continued.
Gilbert, who played the lead role of Laura from the ages of 9 to 19, also had to fight back tears. "Yeah, well, I'm a crier anyway — and I'm also incredibly co-dependent," she shared. "So Ma goes, I go, I guess."
Joining those four were Dean Butler (Almanzo 'Manley' Wilder), Alison Arngrim (Nellie Oleson), Matthew Labyorteaux (Albert Ingalls) and Michael Landon Jr., son of late actor Michael Landon, who played show patriarch Charles Ingalls.
Arngrim revealed she still encounters angry fans who loathed her spoiled character Nellie. "It's quite difficult," the 52-year-old joked.
"I was pelted with a cup of orange soda in the Santa Claus Lane Hollywood Christmas Parade. [But] people kind of love the villains [now]."
She's also eager to watch the recently released DVDs just so she can "see high-def when [Gilbert's] fist goes in my face."
Landon Jr., along with the rest of the cast, took time to remember Landon, who died from pancreatic cancer in 1991 at the age of 54.
"The great thing about the series was the hours that my father set," the 49-year-old producer, who appeared on one episode of the series in 1977, expressed. "He was always home for dinner."
