    Anyone know where I can actually find the episode not this sort of insipid tomfoolery?

    Reason why this show jumped the shark? Its amazing that CBS kept it on the air for the nine astounding years(1972-1981). The first five seasons of the show were in fact heartwarming family drama until this episode. The episode aired during its eighth season of the 1979-1980 season.

    God almighty; when I googled ‘Waltons poltergeist’, I half hoped it would come back nil and it had just been a krazy dream I had as a tiny child. Can’t think of any other non-fantasy show which suddenly had a sci-fi story line, except maybe the aliens in Dallas, and this is better than that. They should have done an episode where John-boy breaks the fourth wall, or Grandpa is revealed as God.

    She was actually doing it all psychically in the show.

    This was the best episode of the series, because it was so different than the others. I liked the shows that revolved around Elizabeth, probably because I was the same age. “The Ferris Wheel” is another of my favorites.

    This show was so wholesome and innocent.. until this episode came on and made me scared of the dark. The raggedy anne doll scene on the bed scared the hell out of me. I was her age and I thought this was going to happen to me at 13.

    Elizabeth was an annoying child and she sure was’t a pretty child either.

    I thought this episode was pretty scarey!

    what episode is this?

  12. kevinhof63 says:

    I’ve always wondered about this episode. First, it was a very unusual episode because of it’s subject matter. Second, the famous Stephen Spielberg movie “Poltergeist” wasn’t released until four years after this episode was filmed. I always wondered if this might have been an inspiration for him to make that movie?

    There are a few Episodes I don’t like to watch at night alone in my room with the door closed. And those 3 episodes are:

    1. The Changeling (The Poltergeist one)

    Like seriously did you see her doll in the Episode? That scared me to hell!

    2. The Ferris Wheel

    You know its kinda creepy when Elizabeth sneaks out at night. Kinda creepy.

    3. The Carousel

    Okay well not all of it is scary but the part when she’s dreaming of the Merry Go Round….the music was creepy.
