Thank you so much for the info Emmy. I guess I’m just too lazy to do simple searches. I think everything she or my Dad did is listed on the IMDB of each of them. I am sorry that you have to do the research, but it’s sure good to know! I appreciate it.
Miss Tracey, No probs. I actually enjoy looking up that stuff.
I have watched the Tom Hanks movie Castaway before and don't remember seeing Joe Conley "Ike Godsey" before. So I had to look it up and there he was at the Christmas dinner table that made the Waltons supper table look small.
Another Robert Donner sighting as a contestant on the American game show 'Beat the Clock' with host Monty Hall. Monty's shows were broadcast in 1979-1980, and both The Waltons and Mork and Mindy were mentioned.

I was checking out old movies and I saw that Tom Bowser and Robert Wightman played in a movie with James Caan back in 2007. It's called Poodle Springs but I couldn’t find an English version. I don’t know what their relationship was off screen but it was nice to see two Walton actors play together.
Awhile back, I posted photos of actor William Schallert in an episode of Little House on the Prairie. Today I saw him in a different episode, one from Season 6, The Preacher Takes a Wife. Rev. Alden falls in love with a widow and wants to marry her. Harriett Oleson objects and calls someone from the main office of the church and tells him to either talk Rev. Alden out of the marriage or have him removed as pastor of the church. It turns out that the church representative who shows up is an old beau of Harriett. Rev Alden ends up marrying the woman, and I don’t remember ever seeing her again on an episode of Little House.
William Schallert was Mr. Stanley Perkins on The Waltons.
I saw another actor from The Waltons on an episode of Little House on the Prairie today. It was the Season 7 episode Dearest Albert, I’ll Miss You. The actor was Diane Shalet who played Eula Pendleton, Jenny’s stepmother, on two episodes of The Waltons. On Little House she played the mother of the girl who was Albert’s pen pal.
