With the release of “Little House on the Prairie” Season 2 on Blu-ray comes the next installment of the documentary series, “The Little House Phenomenon.” One area given the spotlight in the featurette is Michael Landon’s sense of humor while on the set.

The cast and Landon’s own kids remember him as a notorious prankster who was always having fun on the set. Melisa Gilbert, in particular, recalls some of the more memorable funny scenes she shared with her TV dad. Landon passed away from pancreatic cancer in 1991.
“Little House on the Prairie” Season 2 on Blu-ray goes on sale Tuesday, May 6.
