More About Petticoat Junction - The Official First Season
From the mind of Paul Henning, creator of THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES, came this charming sitcom that aired from 1963 to '70. Set in the fictional Hootersville, the show followed the goings-on at the Shady Rest Hotel, run by Kate Bradley (Bea Benaderet) and her three gorgeous daughters: blond, boy-crazy Billie Jo (Jeannine Riley); literary, intellectual Bobbie Jo (Pat Woodell); and redheaded tomboy Betty Joe (Linda Kaye). The only way to reach the hotel was via the Cannonball Express, which was run by Charley Pratt (Smiley Burnette) and Floyd Smoot (Rufe Davis). Rounding out the cast are the girls' Uncle Joe (Edgar Buchanan), who fancied himself general manager but generally shirked his duties, and Sam Drucker (Frank Cady), who ran the General Store. This collection includes all 38 episodes of the show's first season, including guest appearances by Dennis Hopper and Adam West.
