Just Now
John Walmsley always hated himself for not having a fabulous mole like Richard Thomas .. He said that he and Thomas would go to the club's and as soon as they walked in Thomas would start pointing at the mole on his face and women would swoon .. We now all know that his wonderful mole was milk producing that the cast of The Waltons would all crowd around to suckle the wonderful life giving milk it produced .. Sometimes it would turn into an actual fist fight over who would suckle the last drop of that brownish yellow elixir .. The Grandpa (Will Geer) always insisted on chewing the course hair that grew from its center ..Thomas was asked several times in interviews why he didn't just cut or pluck the hair ..and he always replied that he tried a few times but it "hurt my inners"The cast member that was actually addicted to that warm frothy pungent juice was Ellen Corby..the grandma .. See if you noticed her head is extremely small for her body and doctors have said that she suckle so much and so hard that she actually sucked her own head small ... In the end Walmsley sought help for his self loathing over being moleless and became a booger eating spaz

4/12. A lot better than I expected, considering I never watched the show.

This isn't really a quiz about the difference between two seasons of The Waltons, but rather which season a certain event happened (as the quiz' subtitle suggests). A question fit for the actual title of the quiz would be which season had the theme song of more than a minute long?

10\12....Great show....raised many foster kids to watch it and to get a sense of what family can mean...morals and values.

12/12 love the show and it’s to bad they don’t make shows like this anymore, I guess if they did
today’s spoiled generation would just laugh at it.

I got 12 out of 12. Grew up watching The Waltons and I still watch it when I can. Too bad people don't show the love and respect like they used to.

12/12 and the picture that shows is the one that Jason writes a song to Grandma doing her ironing and it wins him first prize.

I'll just save myself a little time and pain by just answering "NO" to the title of this this quiz.

Me, too. Many were pure guesses since I didn't watch "The Waltons" all that much. But when I did it was enjoyable.
