Editorial Reviews

Includes Original Music...Return to Hooterville and ..."Come ride the little train that is rolling down the track to the junction!" The long-running television classic Petticoat Junction (CBS-TV, 1963-1970) was one of the most successful and beloved situation comedies of the 1960s. Created by Paul Henning, the same mastermind behind The Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction ranked as the fourth-highest rated series during its debut season. Set in the folksy farming community of Hooterville, Petticoat Junction centers on Kate Bradley, a widow who runs the charming Shady Rest Hotel with the help of her three beautiful young daughters - Billie Joe, Bobbie Joe and Betty Joe - along with the girls' Uncle Joe. Sam Drucker runs the local general store. Railroad engineers Charlie Pratt and Floyd Smoot operate the Cannonball, a steam engine train that runs through the valley and brings a host of interesting visitors and humorous mishaps to the Shady Rest. This Deluxe Collector's Set features 20 restored episodes complete with the original theme song from the show's first year. It also contains all-new, trivia-packed introductions by actress Linda Kaye Henning (Betty Joe Bradley). Additional bonus features include a special documentary, "The History of Paul Henning and Hooterville," with rare footage, photographs and cast interviews from Petticoat Junction, The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres and more.=20 Vintage network promos and cast commercials round out the set, making it a must-have for any fan of classic TV. So..."Forget about your cares, it is time to relax at the junction."

These episodes are the early black and white shows not broadcast since original airdates (approx. 26 mins each). Each of the 20 episodes are preceded by a new introduction by actress Linda Kaye Henning. There is a great 45 minute "Making Of" documentary that will have you saying "He's still alive!" and "So that's why she left!". The surviving cast's memories of working on the show are still sharp, and you will learn a few new things. There is also about 20 minutes of CAST COMMERCIALS where the stars do the sponsor's commercials in their Hooterville roles. This set will remind you of an innocent time gone by.

My only complaint is that the picture quality of the shows is grainier that other TV shows from major DVD distributors. The transfers were made from film prints rather than the original negatives. The audio is a little muffed at times and could have been cleaned up.

This is a great set. It contains 20 episodes from the first season (a 21st is on a companion Xmas DVD) which have never been seen in syndication. The introductions to each episode by cast member Linda Kaye Henning are informative and the 45 minute documentary on the series is very well done. Commericals with the cast in character are also included as well as original network promos.

It would be great to see more released, but the rights to this series are a bit messy and I believe the rest of the episodes are owned by Paramount, so we'll have to campaign to them for release of the rest of the series, not MPI. That's the reason this is not a "complete season" set, but don't let that stop you, as what is included here is well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Release all 7 Seasons please!! July 6, 2006
Kudos to the poster below who ackowledges Linda Kaye Henning! I also hope she reads these reviews as well. I grew up with "Petticoat Junction", "Beverly Hillbillies" and "Green Acres". But "Junction" was my favorite.....maybe it was the girls.....

Anyhow, the show works brilliantly on all counts. I had never seen these early episodes. I didn't start watching until 1965 or 1966 when I was five. And I only knew Lori Saunders and Meredith MacRae as Bobbie Jo and Billie Jo. To see Jeaninne Riley and Pat Woodell as the original "Bradley Girls" is interesting. But I would like MPI to release the rest of the seasons in their entirety. Linda Kaye Henning does do a superb job introducing each episode! Her charm and beauty are still evident today and it is indeed obvious that she is proud of the show!! With good reason; the chemistry between all the characters is unbelievable. There are also some great bonus features as well (maybe to compensate for the "missing" episodes that were not included in the collection). There are original "commercials" that that cast did for their sponsors.."Ivory Soap" and "Tide" detergent. They are fun to watch. There is also an interview with Bea Benaderet on the Art Linkletter show. What a funny lady!! Most importantly in these features is a documentary called "Back to Hooterville" where Paul Henning's legacy to television is chronicled and includes interviews with Henning, Gunilla Hutton (the second Billie Jo), Frank Cady (Sam Drucker), CHarles Lane (Homer Bedloe), Mike Minor (Steve Elliot) and Lori Saunders (the beautiful Bobbie Jo). Lori Saunders has also lost nothing of her charm and beauty. It is evident that she too is proud to have been a part of this wonderful program.

Many of these episodes from the early black-and-white broadcasts of Petticoat Junction have not been seen since the 1960's in any form. It does seem a little odd that they would release the first twenty episodes from the first season in order, but skip the Christmas episode - "Cannonball Christmas". Columbia House did release a handful of these rare b&w episodes, but then quickly skipped over to the color episodes, which were also being aired at about the same time on Nick-At-Nite's TV Land. It is great to finally get these rare gems on DVD, especially with the original and unforgettable music that was so much a part of the show. I personally can't wait to "ride that little train to the Junction" and visit with Kate Bradley and her three lovely daughters again!! I hope there will be many more episodes of Petticoat Junction to come on DVD in the very near future, too!!
