"Laura, A Little Girl on the Prairie" was a popular Japanese animated television show based on the Laura Ingalls Wilder "Little House" books. Wilder's books, starting with Little House in the Big Woods (1932), told the autobiographical story of her family's life on the late-nineteenth-century American frontier. Her stories were later turned into the popular American television series "Little House on the Prairie" (1974-1983), which also was broadcast in Japan beginning in 1975. Image ©Nippon Animation Company, Ltd.
