'The Waltons' Only Aired 1 Thanksgiving Special During Its Nine-Season Run

For many, Thanksgiving is a time for family. That includes one of TV’s most famous fictional families. Over nearly 10 years on CBS, the characters in The Waltons came together for a handful of Turkey Day meals. But the show only aired one official Thanksgiving special during its nine-season run: 1973’s two-part episode The Thanksgiving Story. 

‘The Waltons: The Thanksgiving Story’ aired in season 2

The Walton family made their TV debut with The Homecoming: A Christmas Story. The 1971 holiday-focused made-for-TV movie about a family celebrating Christmas during the Great Depression was such a hit with audiences that CBS quickly ordered a TV series featuring the same characters.
