About This Quiz

Was The Waltons one of your favorite television shows? Then this quiz is for you. The show aired in the 1970s, so you might want to brush up on your Waltons trivia before you get started. When you're ready, let's find out how much you remember about this iconic show.

Goodnight John Boy, goodnight Maryellen, goodnight... ok, we could go on, but you get the idea. One of the main things that most people remember about The Waltons was the ending scene of every show, where the family said goodnight to one another... all of them. And, since it was a big family, this took a while.

Starring Ralph Waite and Michael Learned as Ma and Pa Walton, and with Richard Thomas as John Boy, the storyteller of the clan, The Waltons first aired in September 1972 and ran for nine seasons and 221 episodes, ending in the summer of 1981. The series was created by Earl Hamner, Jr. and was based on his book, Spencer's Mountain (which was released as a film in 1963). John Walton, Jr., or John Boy, had six siblings, and his paternal grandparents, Zeb and Ester, also lived in the house. What a houseful!
