Everytime Charles Ingall's on Little House on the Prairie called his middle daughter, Laura,  'Half Pint' I would get a tear in my eye.

It was such an endearing nick name and I still remember the one my dad used to call me, 'Snickle Fritz!'  Not sure what it means, but I thought it was funny!

Not so funny is that in real life, Melissa Gilbert is in the middle of divorcing her hubby of 16 years.  She and Bruce Boxleitner have a 15-year old son.
