I can’t even say now that I was aware that the show wasn’t in black and white and never was in black and white. I’ve always enjoyed it. Yesterday I happened to be on MeTV channel 50 watching Mama’s Family and then The Waltons. It was a Thanksgiving special; two hours.
Michael’s father, John, wrote many episodes of The Waltons. Josh learned to play the trumpet from an old man named Hoot, whom he met while “flooding” saloons (before he was adopted by the Fosters). The trumpet belonged to Harley before Josh found it and learned how to play it.
