Little House on the Prairie Set Today The Big Sky Ranch was where the classic NBC series Little House on the Prairie was shot during it nine-year run (1974 to 1983). The wooden buildings no longer exist. (One of the conditions for LHOP to use the venue stated that the buildings used in the show had to be dismantled once the series ended.) Here's what the ranch looks like today--along with what it looked like when the show was in production.

WWII Hawaii Overprint Money After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, there was a legitimate fear that the Japanese would next launch a full-scale invasion of the Hawaiian Islands and occupy them. Among the consequences if that nightmare scenario actually unfolded was that all the US paper money in Hawaii would be seized from banks, businesses and private citizens and be used to finance Imperial Japan's war machine. Accordingly, a remarkable decision was made: During the first half of 1942, Hawaii's residents were ordered take their paper money to special collection areas and exchange it for new bills. Each bill had a special overprint of the word HAWAII on its reverse side. If Hawaii ever did fall to the Japanese, the US government would immediately declare the Hawaii overprint bills to be worthless. The old bills that were exchanged--about $200 million of them--were burned under the supervision of the American military. Such a calamity never occurred, of course. The overprint notes are still acceptable as legitimate US money today, although they rarely are found in general circulation.

Forgotten Term - College Widow Here's a term that has virtually vanished from the English language: "college widow." Originally it had a very literal meaning. It referred to a youthful widow who sought the company of college men to satisfy her lusty ways. Eventually the term morphed into meaning any older female who 'preyed upon' the willing males at a campus with her irresistible feminine wiles. The term was so common in the 1920s and 1930s that it was the title of both a play and a movie. In the play, a college dean convinces his comely daughter to use her charms to distract a rival school's football team. (What a wonderful example of fatherhood!) Most people today are only familiar with the term from seeing the Marx brothers' 1932 movie Horse Feathers. Few people today realize Horse Feathers is actually a parody of the 1927 silent movie The College Widow. In it Thelma Todd uses her obvious charms to seduce all four Marx brothers as part of a silly plot to steal Huxley College's football plays.

Irene Ryan and Bob Crane on Password Irene Ryan (Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies) and Bob Crane (colonel Hogan from Hogan's Heroes) are the celebrity players from this episode of Password circa 1967. Donna Douglas (Elly Mae from The Beverly Hillbillies) makes a surprise appearance as a contestant. The game's producers had a bit of fun with Donna's unmistakable good looks. (No doubt today's anti-sexism crowd would be up in arms over such obvious objectifying.)

1960s Sugar Ad You definitely won't see anything like this today. An advert tells moms to give their daughters lots of sugar to combat the daily fatigue that comes with being an active girl. (It's from the mid-1960s; I can tell by the allusion to the Beatles' hair.)
