John-Boy's off to college - and life will never be the same on Walton's Mountain.
Change comes to Walton's Mountain. Scholarship winner John-Boy enters Boatwright University. Jason takes his big brother's place as head kid wrangler for the Walton brood while finding his own identity in music. John and Olivia celebrate 20 years of marriage. Grandpa and Grandma leave home (and return). But one thing can never change: the powerful family bond that keeps the Waltons united.
In this 5-disc set containing all 24 Season 3 episodes, the Waltons experience situations unique to the Depression, including a dance marathon and the construction of Blue Ridge Park. But mostly they face the age-old issues of family: holding children close and letting them go, doing without and making do. Topical yet timeless, of its era yet forever true. That's Season 3 of The Waltons.
