    Premise: The struggles of a family in rural Virginia during the Great Depression and World War II
    Some critics complained it was too sentimental and trivialized the suffering of people during the Depression.
    Its reruns were a staple on the Family Channel when it was owned by Pat Robertson.
    By 1980, Grandpa and Grandma were written out completely, the parents had moved to Arizona and appeared only sporadically, and John-Boy was played by a different actor, but they limped through one last season anyway.
    Trying that 'Goodnight, John-Boy' thing at home only got a 'Shut up and go to sleep' in response.
    It debuted in a 'suicide slot' opposite the top-rated Flip Wilson show on NBC and The Mod Squad on ABC but quickly outperformed them in the ratings.
    During its first season, it won five Emmys and a Peabody Award.
    It was a favorite of viewers who wanted to avoid sex and violence.
    The Walton home was recycled as the Dragonfly Inn in Gilmore Girls.
    John Walton, Sr., ranked #3 on TV Guide's '50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time.'
