Is it just me, or is "Little House on the Prairie" inappropriate for children?

I watched a few episodes of the later seasons with my kids on the Hallmark Channel and I was appalled by the story lines. There were episodes about rape, child abuse, psychosis, suicide, etc.

I think it is rediculous that this show would be rated "G". Did anyone else find certain episodes of "Little House on the Prairie" to be disturbing and too "adult" for their kids. Also, does anyone know of some children's shows that teach a good lesson, are wholesome, but are not too moronic (like Bugs Bunny, SpongeBob, etc. which are just too senseless)? Thanks.

Just to be clear: the Little House television series has virtually nothing to do with the books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, which are wonderful and would be great to share with your children (I've read them all on an almost yearly basis since I was a little girl, into my late 20s now). The show, on the other hand, is a bunch of preachy, Michael Landon-centered melodrama.
