John-Boy's off to college and life will never the same on Walton's Mountain.
Change comes to Walton's Mountain. Scholarship winner John-Boy enters Boatwright University. Jason takes his big brother's place as head kid wrangler for the Walton brood while finding his own identity in music. John and Olivia celebrate 20 years of marriage. Grandpa and Grandma leave home (and return). But one thing can never change: the powerful family bond that keeps the Waltons united.
In this set containing all 24 Season 3 episodes, the Waltons experience situations unique to the Depression, including a dance marathon and the construction of Blue Ridge Park. But mostly they face the age-old issues of family: holding children close and letting them go, doing without and making do. Topical yet timeless, of its era yet forever true.
A family poor in possesions but rich in understanding, hope and love.
It's 1936: Hitler and Mussolini threaten the world. King Edward gives up the English throne for love. Gangebusters is on the radio, a movie crew hires John-Boy as a scriptwriter, Mary Ellen applies to nursing school, Jim-Bob discovers a shocking fact about his birth and a fire drives the Waltons from their home.
Events large and small far off and near touch the lives of all 11 Waltons, from Grandpa down to little Elizabeth. They bring tests, tears and triumphs... and bring the closely knit Waltons even closer together. Share the 24-episode Season 4 story of America's favorite family.
