The man who played Doctor Hiram Baker on Little House on the Prairie has died of cancer.
Jul 13, 2005
Kevin Hagen dies at 77

Little House on the Prairie star Kevin Hagen has died at the age of 77.

The much-loved character actor, who was diagnosed with esophageal cancer just one year ago, succumbed to the disease in his Oregon home on Saturday, July 9. He is survived by his fourth wife, Jan, and his son, Kristopher.

Hagen was raised by his ballroom-dancer mother and her family in Chicago, Illinois. He served time in the Navy, earned an international-relations degree, spent a year in law school, and worked as a ballroom dance instructor before he discovered acting in his late 20s. He appeared in several plays before being spotted by a Hollywood agent and given a part on the detective series Dragnet.

Once Hagen broke into the television world, he found regular employment portraying villainous characters on Western TV series ...

Little Mosque on the Prairie tests boundaries of what people will find funny.

Canadian sitcom: Allah in the family

Little Mosque on the Prairie, a Canadian sitcom that debuts Tuesday, depicts immigrant Muslims bumping up against white locals in rural Saskatchewan.

Zarqa Nawaz, creator and writer of the groundbreaking show, insists she's an equal-opportunity satirist taking dead aim at both Muslim and Canadian stereotypes in a post-September 11 world.

"I expect both groups will be wondering if the other finds the show funny," says Nawaz.

There are predictable jokes about Muslim beliefs clashing with Canadian traditions. In one scene, a father wearing a kufi, or a knitted cap worn by devout Muslims, protests that his Canadian-born daughter wearing a revealing tank top looks "like a Protestant."

"Don't you mean prostitute?" the daughter asks.

"No, I meant a Protestant," the father replies.

In another scene, a young man of Middle Eastern origins with a Canadian accent is heard ...

Gabe Kotter, the fictional teacher from the '70s sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter, has been named television's number one educator.
Aug 31, 2005
They tease him a lot, but Kotter is the tube's greatest teacher

In a new list from Inside TV magazine, Gabe Kotter, the titular teacher from the sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter, has been named "Television's Most Memorable Teacher." Kotter, created and performed by stand-up comedian Gabe Kaplan, taught at an inner-city high school and presided over a group of teens called "The Sweathogs." He befriended the troubled students and gave them the educational tools to have a fighting chance in the rough-and-tumble job market of the late 1970s.

While Kaplan and the rest of the Sweathogs have struggled to maintain their Q ratings, one of Kotter's students "graduated" to much better things: John Travolta, who played the goofy hunk Vinnie Barbarino. Travolta was launched into megastardom after he starred as the lead in the disco hit Saturday Night Fever. Travolta went on to make several classic films of the modern era, including Staying Alive, Numbers, Perfect, Swordfish, Michael, Battlefield Earth ...

Lars Hanson (1974-1978)
Dr. Hiram Baker
Jenny Wilder (1982-1983)
This award-winning family drama was based upon Laura Ingalls Wilder's 9-part series of autobiographical books. Television producer and NBC executive Ed Friendly became aware of this enduring story in the early 1970s. He asked Michael Landon to direct the pilot movie, who agreed on the condition that he could also play Charles Ingalls. TIME: beginning in the 1870s. PLACE: the American frontier - more specifically, Walnut Grove in the state of Minnesota. THE CHARACTERS: Charles/Pa Ingalls: a homesteader farmer/woodworker; compassionate and loving, yet quick-tempered and ready to throw a defensive punch whenever necessary Caroline/Ma Ingalls: Patient and understanding wife and mother; the ideal prairie woman Laura Ingalls Wilder: The winsome, tomboyish second daughter of Charles and Caroline, who serves as the voice of the entire series, and eventually married Almanzo Wilder Mary Ingalls Kendall: Charles and Caroline's pretty and ultra-responsible oldest daughter, who longs to be a teacher and goes completely blind at the age of 15. She later marries Adam Kendall, although this is a fictional piece created just for the TV series Carrie Ingalls: The cute third daughter of Charles and Caroline, who didn't have a large role but was always portrayed as a very sweet little girl Grace Ingalls: Charles and Caroline's fifth and final child, who was only about 4 when her role in the series ended Jack: the loyal, lovable family dog, who was replaced by Bandit when he died in Season 4. Albert Quinn Ingalls: The fictional adopted son of Charles and Caroline--an orphaned runaway whom the Ingalls meet while living temporarily in Winoka James Cooper Ingalls: The fictional adopted son of Charles and Caroline, who comes to live with them after the death of his parents Cassandra Cooper Ingalls: The fictional adopted daughter of Charles and Caroline, and the younger sister of James Supporting characters include: Miss Eva Beadle: The first teacher of Walnut Grove, who taught Laura to read and helped Mary realize her dream to teach Dr. Hiram Baker: the loyal town physician Reverend Robert Alden: The town's devout and hugely caring Church minister Mr. Isaiah Edwards: The mountain-man/drifter-turned-farmer who settled in Walnut Grove, who had a drinking problem and, despite his happy-go-lucky exterior, had a lot of emotional turmoil in his life Grace Snider: A widow and town postmistress who marries Isaiah and adopts three orphaned children with him John Sanderson Edwards: the oldest adopted son of Isaiah and Grace, who lives with them after the death of his widowed mother, and becomes a writer Carl Sanderson Edwards: Isaiah and Grace's second adopted child, brother of John and Alicia Alicia Sanderson Edwards: The sweet youngest adopted child of Isaiah and Grace, and the younger sister of John and Carl Lars Hanson: The beloved founder of Walnut Grove, and proprietor of the Hanson Lumber Mill, where Charles and Isaiah worked Nels Oleson: father and proprietor of the mercantile (general store). Harriet Oleson: The rude, gossiping woman who spoils her children rotten and has a perpetual hold on her ever-patient husband Nellie Oleson Dalton: The bratty oldest child of Nels and Harriet, who butts heads with Laura throughout their childhood and later marries Percival Dalton (another fictional event). Willie Oleson: Nels and Harriet's youngest child, who is mischievous but has more of his father's kindhearted traits; eventually marries Rachel Brown Adam Kendall: Mary's husband, who is also blind and wins her heart by teaching her to reclaim her life when she first goes blind. Has two children with Mary, but they both die in infancy Almanzo Wilder: Laura's charismatic husband, a farmer who has two children with Laura, one of whom dies in infancy John Carter: A blacksmith and family man who moves from Walnut Grove to New York in Season 9 with his wife and two sons, moving into the Ingalls house when they relocate to Iowa. Sarah Carter: A newspaper editor and loving mother, wife of John Carter. Jeb Carter: John and Sarah's oldest child, fairly underdeveloped, but always a good kid Jason Carter: John and Sarah's adorable, endearing youngest son who was often Michael Landon's go-to kid for comic relief in some of the darker episodes from Seasons 9 and 10 Jenny Wilder: the sweet, effervescent fictional niece of Laura and Almanzo, who comes to live with them permanently after the death of her father, Almanzo's brother Royal. Nancy Oleson: A young girl that Nels and Harriet adopt once Nellie is grown; a monstrous, manipulative child who has her mother wrapped around her little fingermoreless
