Synopsis
This special 2-hour episode of The Waltons was penned by series creator Earl Hamner Jr. As the Depression-era Walton family prepares for Thanksgiving, oldest son John-Boy (Richard Thomas) is injured in a freak accident. The crisis is compounded when John-Boy tries to cover up the accident's side effects in order to qualify for an important scholarship examination. The various plotlines converge, and not a few are resolved, at the dinner table as John Walton (Ralph Waite) leads the family in prayer. Thanksgiving Story was first telecast November 15, 1973. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
