* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: No pun intended, but in season 5 "The Firestorm," [[spoiler:the anti-German Rev Fordwick, in response to Hitler burning the Holy Bible, plans on burning ''Mein Kampf'' and any other German literature they could get his hands on in protest. John-boy stands up to them, trying to get them to see how wrong it was and spots one black book in the pile and picks it up. Mrs. Brimmer comes forward to read the German words and then the English. Rev Forwick and those assembled were nearly in tears as they realized she was reading the Holy Bible.]]

* VagueAge: Jim-Bob's age was never consistently kept straight on the series; as seen in the note under WritersCannotDoMath.



* WritersCannotDoMath: The 1990s reunion films depict the family at least ten to fifteen years younger than they should be. For example, one of them has the family celebrating John and Olivia's fortieth anniversary in 1969, which would make the year they were married 1929, which results in the kids being too young to have had the experiences they did on the show during the Depression and World War II.

** Jim-Bob's VagueAge becomes another issue. After attempting to enlist following the attack on Pearl Harbor; Jim-Bob is told he is too young. Where this becomes an issue is depending on which birth date is correct.[[note]]The Season 3 episode "The Runaway" has his birth date as June 13, 1924, during which the recruiter would be correct about his being too young. However, the following season's "The Secret" lists his date of birth as January 13, 1923 (which would make Jim-Bob 18 going on 19). Finally; Jim-Bob is shown as high-school valedictorian for the Class of 1944 in the Season 8 episode "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Valedictorian]]"[[/note]]

The Waltons are a large country family who run a saw mill on Walton's Mountain in rural Virginia, and the series depicts their grinding struggle to make ends meet during the TheGreatDepression, and later WorldWarII. As initial lead character (and adult narrator) John-Boy Walton noted, they didn't have much money, but they had a lot of love and fortitude to keep the whole brood going through thick and thin.

* AnimatedAdaptation: Not offically, but in 1974 Creator/HannaBarbera created an {{Expy}} called ''These Are the Days'', about the early-20th-century Day family (who might as well have been called Walton).

**"A Day For Thanks On Walton Mountain" provides a subplot with a downplayed example. [[spoiler:Zeb's spirit is allegedly seen by his great-grandchildren and implied to be watching over the family.]]

* WritersCannotDoMath: The 1990s reunion films finds the family at least ten to fifteen years younger than they should be. For example, one of them has the family celebrating John and Olivia's fortieth anniversary in 1969, which would have put most of the kids born in the 1930s and 1940s, the time frame depicted on the series when they already born.
