The Waltons was an American television series about a family in Virginia during the 1930s and roughly forty. The show was broadcast by CBS in America from 1972 to 1981, and was also broadcast in Netherlands.

The family, consisting of Olivia and John Walton, their seven children and John's parents, Esther and Zebis followed in their daily struggle during the recession years and the Second World War. The story is presented from the perception of eldest son John-Boy, who has aspirations to become a writer. The end of each episode was the look on the dark House, where only a window was illuminated. Then the whole family the viewer heard each other good night wishes, with the valve father Walton: "Good night, John-Boy", and John-Boy: "Goodnight, everyone", after which the last light went out.

In 1992 President George H. W. Bush said during a speech that the US should conduct themselves more like the Waltons than the Simpsons. In the Simpson sepisode the characters looked next to Bush's speech on television and declared Bart: "Hee, we're just like the Waltons. We also pray for the end of the depression".
