The World's Fair 1933 "A Century of Progress International Exposition" was the name of a World's Fair that was held in Chicago from 1933 to 1934 to celebrate the city's centennial. The theme of the fair was technological innovation; the motto was "Science Finds, Industry Applies, Man Conforms"; its architectural symbol was the Sky Ride, a transporter bridge perpendicular to the shore on which one could ride from one side of the fair to the other.

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] Few strangers ever came to Waltons Mountain. We got our news of the outside world from the radio or from an occasional copy of a magazine. But I remember when I was about seventeen, four visitors arrived and gave me my first unexpected glimpse of the other world beyond our mountain.

This episode aired on September 21 1972, with this opening. Few strangers ever came to Waltons Mountain. We got our news of the outside world from the radio or from an occasional copy of a magazine. However, I remember when I was about seventeen; four visitors arrived and gave me my first unexpected glimpse of the other world beyond our mountain. The children along with John Boy are sitting at the table counting there money, because the carnival is in town. After figuring at how much money they had, Olivia sends them upstairs to be cleaned up before leaving. After cleaning, the money from the table Grandma accidentally throws her glasses on the floor and they break. Olivia tells Grandma that she has 2.00 emergency money to use to get her glasses fix. The children decide to give there money to the cause and forget about the carnival. The next day John Boy is outside fixing Olivia clothesline when Sheriff Bridges pulls up. The Sheriff is looking for John and when he's told that he's gone, the Sheriff tells John Boy to warn his daddy able four circus people being left behind. The next day the children follow a monkey to a barn where they find **** ******. This episode wasn't as good as the first one but it was only the second episode ever. I give this six weasel stars for the family love alone.
