‘Little House on the Prairie’ Star Karen Grassle Was Once Kidnapped On Another Iconic Television Show
Just as Karen Grassle’s career on “Little House on the Prairie” was beginning, the iconic Western “Gunsmoke” was winding down. For 20 years, from 1955 to 1975, Marshal Matt Dillon kept a watchful eye over Dodge City. In 1974, “Little House on the Prairie” was in its first year of a nine-season run. And Karen Grassle, who played Caroline Ingalls opposite Michael Landon in the 19th-century drama, appeared in an episode of “Gunsmoke” that same year.
