9. Little House on the Prairie, February 6, 1984
Who knew people would love their town so much that they would blow it up to save it? Well, the citizens of Walnut Grove did just that in the final episode of Little House on the Prairie. The townsfolk were not happy that a railroad tycoon took ownership of the town. They decide to send him a message and let off explosives in every building. I don’t think they entirely thought this plan through. But as Reverend Alden said, “Walnut Grove did not die in vain,” so I guess they proved some point. I am not sure what it is though.
