Back in November of 1996, I produced this web site
about the television series, The Waltons. I had found so
little about the show on the Internet and it was, and still is
one of my favorite shows. I had watched the show when I was growing
up and I now find that I still enjoy the adventures, the togetherness
and the family spirit which they showed with my own family. There
was no sex, and very little violence in the show. It is just warm
family drama we can all watch comfortably together.
The show has lasted too, with The Waltons celebrating
its 25th anniversary in 1997. It is still being enjoyed
by people in the USA, Britain, Belgium, Israel and, of course, Australia
where I and many others, were reliving the episodes thanks to Foxtel.
If it is screening in your country, please let me know and I'll
add it to the list. Many people are continuing to collect Waltons
Memorabilia, with some pieces being very much in demand, and there
is even a Waltons Mountain Museum, which has been developed in
Schuyler, the home of the Hamner family, the real Waltons.
You can find out more about the series and its actors
by visiting the links below. If you are a true fan of The Waltons,
you will already know that it is very hard to find out much about
the series and the actors either from the Internet, or from books.
Fortunately for us all though, there have been many other sites
developed about the show, and there's even a Waltons Webring now.
Each one is unique and they are all fun to visit. In the meantime,
I hope you enjoy your visit to my Waltons site, coming to you
from an Australian perspective.
The Waltons Mailing List has been
up and running now, since Easter '97. It was sent to coincide
with the airing of the most recent Waltons special, A Walton
Easter. The mailing list is sent in digest form, usually just
once each week and the membership is growing daily. It's a really
friendly group with people of all ages involved so come and join
us. We discuss all sorts of Waltons matters and it's a great way
to keep up to date with all the latest gossip about our favorite
If you are interested, please
email me and I will add you to the list. When you send your email,
please put "Walton List" in the subject space. Joining
a mailing list is a great way to meet new internet friends and
to learn a lot more about this show and the actors from it.
As it is run by me, not by a listserv,
please be patient and don't expect an immediate reply. If you
don't hear from me for a few days though, it is worthwhile to
send your message again, just in case I haven't received your
email, or for some reason, I didn't get your email address quite
If you begin to have problems receiving your digest, and it does happen from time to time through no fault of my own, you can still access it via the internet, at the Waltons Digest Member's Site. Go to The Waltons Digest Member's Site then click on the link for Digests 2002 or 2003.
Latest Waltons News
The Waltons is currently being shown on Foxtel here in Australia. Have a look at it on weekdays, Channel 6 (Classis Fox) at 9a.m.
I'm told by a Foxtel viewer that currently Foxtel only have the first three seasons of The Waltons, which they are replaying. If you are enjoying the show then why not give Foxtel a call and let them know you're watching and would love them to get all nine seasons. If lots of viewers call them, then we might get some action. You can contact them on 131999.
Waltons DVDs Now Available
Finally Warner Bros have brought out the first season of The Waltons on DVD. It's a good idea to shop around for it as the prices can vary enormously. I managed to get a good price at Best Buy. For those of you who can't find it, or want to get it over the Internet, I buy a lot of items from www.amazon.com and I always find them very good. The Homecoming and Spenser's Mountain are also available on DVD. If we continue to buy them then hopefully more seasons will come.
