Did You Know?

Petticoat Junction The Official Second Season, for the first time, is brought to you complete featuring all 36 episodes on 5 discs. Included in the set are original cast members Pat Woodell and Linda Kaye Henning providing episodic intros as well as a photo gallery and Interviews. So take a ride on the Cannonball and make a stop at the Shady Rest Hotel with owner Kate Bradley and her three daughters Billie Joe, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo. Oh, and lets not forget Uncle Joe.   

Petticoat Junction represents the down home family comedy formula that made the Andy Griffith Show a success. Simple characters, humorous scenario’s made all that much more hilarious by down to Earth character responses. This is good clean comedy lost to the world of television which is both its charm but also its downfall.

Sugary sweet are the characters of Petticoat Junction. Well raised and behaved, for the most part, always ending on a feel good note. Its almost to much to take in considering the decline and desensitizing of our outlook when it comes to television and the modernization of the world we live in compared to the simple life of country living. The show does its part to get a few chuckles but the humor only barely makes it beyond the point where Petticoat could easily have found itself marketed as a kids show, a more sophisticated one, but a super safe one all the same. If you’re a fan of the show you wont be disappointed with the presentation and the bonus features but the show seems to be lost in time, at least for me. As always final judgment is all yours. Enjoy.
