Widower Steve Douglas raises three sons with the help of his father-in-law, and is later aided by the boys' great-uncle. An adopted son, a stepdaughter, wives, and another generation of sons join the loving family in later seasons.
Widower Sheriff Andy Taylor, and his son Opie, live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry, North Carolina. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney Fife.
In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, during the Great Depression, the Walton family makes its small income from its sawmill on Walton's Mountain. The story is told through the eyes of eldest son John-Boy, who wants to be a novelist, goes to college, and eventually fulfills his dream. The saga follows the family through economic depression and World War II; and through growing up, school, courtship, marriage, employment, birth, aging, illness, and death.Written by

The "Walton House" was actually located in the northern section of the Jungle area of Warner Brothers studios in Burbank. Walton's Mountain, which could be seen from the house's front porch, was actually a slope of the Hollywood Hills directly south of the Warner Bros. Studios. Interiors of the house were filmed on Stage 26. The roadway leading to the Walton house through the remaining portion of the jungle still existed in 2003 and is visible during the studio tour, although Ike Godsey's store has long since disappeared. The house had been dismantled a few years before to make way for a parking lot and was moved to the Warner Bros. Ranch lot at Hollywood Way and Verdugo Avenue, where it still functions as a workable exterior set. If you check the Season 1 DVD's of "Gilmore Girls" you will note that the old "Dragonfly Inn" that Lorelai and Sookie purchase and then renovate is the exterior of the Walton house. This is also stated in the trivia section for "Gilmore Girls" here on IMDb.com. See more »

Six years in grade school, five years in high school... everything I ever ran for, I was always running against the same Johnny Walton... The greatest day of my life was when I beat John Walton out for senior-class president. I don't think he ever lost any sleep over it. Now I'm an ambitious man - some would say successful; probably it's all John's fault. I was always running; he was always going past me at a walk. And here it is, 25 years later: here I am, and there's John. Then look at me... ...

I started in the 70's as a young girl watching The Waltons, and now I have a family that values this all time TV program. My family is not fully The Walton's lifestyle (times have changed), but I (a mom) value the family circle The Waltons TV program provides my family. The togetherness of happy and tough times for The Waltons, gives me hope still to this day, that you can work through anything and still go on. The joy of family support is there in this TV show, and much love, which you don't see on TV today. The Waltons have grandma, grandpa to run to for love and all there sisters and brothers jump in to help one other. What more can you ask for in a TV program for families? I and my family watch The Waltons as much as I can, more so I do, because I like to see others happy and getting along. All the actors and actress do a outstanding job in this TV program and have a wonderful TV setting to do it on. The mountains and a large family, there is so much to be involved in, such as picnic dinners, fishing, walking to the small store, community activities. Keep running those Waltons TV shows, because I will be tuned in.
