Enduring another hard year of the Depression, the Walton family remembers that the true richness of life comes from the joy, love and compassion they bring one another. John-Boy's (Richard Thomas) parents, John (Ralph Waite) and Olivia (Michael Learned), and grandparents (Will Geer, Ellen Corby) set sterling examples of strength and determination for the generations to follow. In the second season, Thanksgiving joy turns to worry when John-Boy suffers a head injury, and Grandma Walton inherits some money - and a host of problems. Plus, John-Boy makes the family proud as he graduates from high school, and a corporation offers John a modest fortune to sell Walton's Mountain. Will he do it? Sissy Spacek, John Ritter and Ron Howard guest star in this heartwarming, classic series.
