The final season of The Waltons is notable for the ever-changing number of people sitting at the family's long dinner table. Early in the season, with all four boys at war in Europe and Japan, plates are set for John Sr. (Ralph Waite), cousin Rose (Peggy Rea)--the de facto woman of the house with matriarch Olivia (Michael Learned) gone away--and sisters Mary Ellen (Judy Norton-Taylor), Erin (Mary Beth McDonough), and Elizabeth (Kami Cotler), plus brother Ben's wife Cindy (Leslie Winston). Once the war is over and Ben, Jim-Bob (David W. Harper), Jason (Jon Walmsley) and John-Boy (Robert Wightman, replacing Richard Thomas) are back home, the number of people seated at that table still continues to go up and down for all kinds of reasons. That fluctuation says much about the state of the family and of The Waltons itself, long past the era when all those kids were still in school and regularly eating with a full complement of parents and grandparents. With both of the latter gone and even John Sr. disappearing halfway through the season to help ailing Olivia move to Arizona, it's the young people ruling the roost now.

Things start off powerfully with the two-part "The Outrage," in which John Sr. leaps to the defense of an African-American employee, Harley (Hal Foster), who has been living under an assumed name since escaping a chain gang years before. Never a show to back off from issues of discrimination, The Waltons: The Complete Ninth Season, tackles gender bias (Mary Ellen is turned down for admission to medical school, while Erin is one of many women on Walton's Mountain who lose their jobs to returning veterans) and anti-Semitism (Jason's wonderful girlfriend Toni, played by Lisa Harrison, causes a stir when everyone discovers she's a Jew). Meanwhile, John-Boy falls in love with a Parisian bookseller who encourages him to write an article about stray land mines, though his true destiny as a writer leads him back to his roots. Ben, too, is full of ambition following the war, eager to attend engineering college but needed at the family mill after John Sr. leaves. Jason takes over the Dew Drop Inn and finds a way to make a go of it with Toni's help. Rose rediscovers love again when her dance partner, Stanley (William Schallert), returns, albeit as an emotional wreck. (The Rose-Stanley storylines in season nine are among the sweetest episodes.) In a strange development, Mary Ellen's allegedly late husband turns up, a very different and darker personality than he was before. Other new and recurring characters continue to add color and texture to the show, most notably Ike (Joe Conley) and Corabeth Godsey (Ronnie Claire Edwards), the Baldwin sisters (Helen Kleeb, Mary Jackson), and newcomer Rev. Tom Marshall (Kip Niven), who starts off a firebrand and ends up a civilizing influence over the aforementioned anti-Semitic tensions. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

For nine seasons from 1972 to 1981, the Walton family was America's family. Viewers' hearts were captured by the story of John and Olivia Walton, their seven children, Grandpa and Grandma as they faced the Depression and World War II with not much more than a love of the land and the rock-solid support of each other. This elegiac final season is the ideal capstone to the Emmy-honored and lovingly remembered series. The Walton boys endure terrifying dangers in Europe and the Pacific, then gratefully return to Walton's Mountain when the war ends. Peace brings new challenges, but also new beginnings and - for many of the family, young and old - new love. Share the final good night with The Waltons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Series April 6 2014
I grew up with the Waltons and have always loved the series. The acting was second to none, and the family problems and conflicts are ones that we can all relate to. It is disappointing that Michael Learned was not in the later seasons. On a side note, I met Will Geer, Grandpa Walton, at the L.A. airport in January 1978 and it was one the highlights of my life. He was so gracious and kind to us! I want to add that you CAN get the specials in a dvd set which includes John Boy getting married. Anyway, I'd highly recommend this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Theme: Becoming their own person. May 12 2013
Verified Purchase
In this Walton's season, the family has grown to the age of being their own person. They were determined to put to practice what they had been taught as children, by their parents and grandparents wise counsel. However, the parents at various times had a problem with letting there children spread their wings!

5.0 out of 5 stars Waltons not complete! June 12 2009
By Maureen
Very disappointed that this is being called the final series. There are a few episodes missing from the original and I really hope that they will be out soon. Missing - Erin's wedding for one, Richard Thomas returning as John Boy - getting married. Showing Jason and Tony married with children; the death of Ben and Cindy's child - to name a few. I can't remember the titles of these "movies", (I think one was called "A Wedding on Walton's Mountain") but I do remember watching them a couple of times. It would be nice if all the remaing shows could be put out on one dvd. Anyone else out there remember these? I have thoroughly enjoyed all the Waltons series over again and am waiting patiently for the final missing episodes to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is the ninth season really the last one? Sept. 15 2009
I wish to mention that I fully agree with Maureen "Maurie's" (Regina, Sk. Canada) review that I have copied and paste here:
"Very disappointed that this is being called the final series. There are a few episodes missing from the original and I really hope that they will be out soon. Missing - Erin's wedding for one, Richard Thomas returning as John Boy - getting married. Showing Jason and Tony married with children; the death of Ben and Cindy's child...etc"

I do wish that these episodes could be burned on a DVD. I am a great fan of the Waltons and this would complete my complete series. I have watched on uTube some of these episodes that are not on the ninth season. It would be nice to be able to see them fully on my TV. I was really happy to see that Richard Thomas had returned as John-Boy in these final episodes.
