* 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.

**"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.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: John Walton may the iconic loving father, but ''do not'' think you can take advantage of him. One drifter thought he could when he was bunking with the family and tried to steal some money before making his escape; the next thing that happened is that he was staring down a shotgun wielded by John who is quite adament that the thief put back the money and explain himself. John-Boy is no pushover either when facing bad guys, once forcing a young girl con artist to confess her crimes in front of the family and later on [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome beating up both boys singlehandedly that jumped him earlier in the episode]].
