From the late 1960s until the mid-1990s, James Karen (who played evil tycoon Nathan Lassiter) was the TV spokesman for the New York/New Jersey-based Pathmark supermarket chain. After his appearance here, Karen reported being accosted by people on the street, in addition to hundreds of people writing directly to Pathmark, asking how they could employ the heartless man who destroyed Walnut Grove. Concerned about possibly losing his lucrative Pathmark gig, as well as the negative attention it might bring the company, Karen made a point of personally responding to many of those who complained, and the controversy quickly died down, with Karen continuing to serve as "Mr. Pathmark" in their commercials for another 10 years.

Pa, there is something you could do.
Well, I'd sure like it if you and Ma could make a younger child. Then it wouldn't be so bad if I have someone to pick on.
Well Son, I'm gonna have to talk to your Ma about that.

I love Little House On The Prairie so much. I cried when they blew up all the main buildings. I think it would have been great if they left all the buildings up so people could actually visit "Walnut Grove". I would have loved to see what it was like practically growing up there. I think it would have been so much fun to make that kind of a television show. I still watch it everyday on TBS even though I've seen every single episode. =)
