  • The waltons first episode (yeah! first episode!) is about the waltons eating their breakfast and then John-boy goes outside and sees a girl sleeping at their backdoor. they find out she's deaf and so they teac her sign language.they dont keep her :(

    it was certainly a strange pilot episode, but it did introduce all the characters and t was pretty cool to see all the cast in their very early childhood, and to see them progress through the series (unlike the simpsons!) the characters look very different then what they do throughout th rest of the series, so i EXTREMELY reccomed this episode to anybody who watches waltons but hasn't sees the first episode. ~old shows finatic
