I liked both shows -yet "The Waltons" seemed like LHOTP's somewhat restrained mountain cousin.

Definately Little House On the Prairie I liked all the characters. Waltons were too slow and I couldn't get into that program.

I haven't seen The Waltons much. I think LHoP was more fun, especially due to the comic villainy of Mrs. Oleson & her daughter, Nellie.

Both were good but I'm a hard core LHOP fan. So, of course, I vote emphatically for LHOP.

I'm here because I watch LHOTP during Christmas. I was googling something about it and came across this post. I had to vote. Although I have tried watch the Waltons, I could never get through the few episodes I tried to watch in the past. So LHOTP gets my vote.

Little House was like a kid's show, The Waltons seems more geared to adults. When I watch Little House now I often feel like they're trying too hard to get a weepy emotional reaction from me, which I do not like at all.

I like both, but I have a slight preference to LHOTP more than The Walton's

They're both good shows, although when I was a kid I really didn't like Little House at all. And I'd say for me I still have a preference for The Waltons over it. For me The Waltons were more relatable and believable. I just think as Little House went on some of the episodes were kind of far-fetched and not that believable (especially the series finale), whereas I think The Waltons was always more real, what with the Depression and World War 2. The Waltons reminded me very much of lots of my own relatives, as I'm from a bigger family. And like the Waltons most of us are people of Christian faith who regularly go to church. But Little House On The Prairie had those values too. But like someone else said I think there were times it was trying way too hard to be a tearjerker of a show. And I could only take so much of Nelly and Harriet Olson, I couldn't stand them and how stuck up, mean, and hateful they were! As an adult I'll now watch either of them whenever I might come across an episode but The Waltons is definitely my favorite. And also the theme song to The Waltons is one of my favorite TV theme songs ever.

Ed. ETA: There are some episodes of The Waltons after Cora Beth became a regular character that I'll skip too because she was very stuck up and mean sometimes and it's just very unpleasant to watch.
