Alison Arngrim, who played Bull’s daughter Nellie on the popular show, posted numerous times about the man who was her “father.”
Despite his henpecked relationship with his on-screen wife in “Little House on the Prairie,” Bull’s relationship with his real-life wife Barbara was much better.
“I sometimes feel sorry for Nels Oleson,” Bull told the Times Daily in 1979
. “I couldn’t take some of the things he does. Barbara and I share everything and try not to be a burden to each other.”
Other people felt sorry for the Oleson character too.
