This is a compilation of a number of the TV sitcom episodes back to back - not a movie.

It's a very quaint sitcom with lovable characters we could identify with and just enjoy, from the era of shows like The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres, I Dream of Jeanne, The Dick Van Dyke show and the like. They weren't intellectual gems by any means, but intelligent in their simple mass appeal. Everyone loved to watch them - they were a nice way to pass the time and at the same time they made us feel so much smarter, wiser and more sophisticated/worldly by comparison. And now, decades later, I'm all grown up and shows are more sophisticated - but I still love watching the old shows now and then. Memories of simpler times. It's just a good feeling like spending a nice evening on the porch with a few friends or family... nothing special, but it makes you feel good.

In this particular sitcom, loveable Uncle Joe is usually up to some hair-brained scheme (or misguided thinking), Kate is the wise woman we all hope to be, and her 3 Barbie-doll beautiful daughters were always great eye candy for the male audience and good roles for us teenage girls to try to emulate in many ways.

Take a trip back down memory lane and enjoy these episodes and for a little while, life will just seem better.

I love this show and every time I watch it , it takes me back to a time when I had no worries with taxes, elections nor medical issues. A time when my biggest concern was could I make it a whole week without seeing Uncle Joe, and Kate and the girls? Would that train make it next time?

I was always so excited when I would see Oliver and Lisa at the store. I did wonder why Sam Drucker ran the General Store in town yet where was Mr. Ziffel and Arnold??

Petticoat Junction was one of a number of rural comedies to emerge in the 1960's. It came about due to Paul Henning's success with The Beverly Hillbillies. He was essentially given carte blanche with making a "sister" series for the show, not even needing to shoot a pilot. Paul intended to make the series a vehicle for Bea Benaderet, who had been playing the recurring role of Cousin Pearl on "Hillbillies". He also loosely based it upon his wife's youth living in a hotel in the Midwest.

Great show for family and super trip down memory lane for those who recall this airing when life was easier, before technology made out lives so much better (Joking).

Predictable plots and story lines, but charming nonetheless. I liked the series years featuring Bea Benaderet a bit better than the series with June Lockheart. I think Meredith MacCrea joined the cast as Betty Jo in the 4th or 6th season. It's just a great study to view the talent of each member of the cast. The actors made it look so easy to charm and entertain us. I truly appreciate how difficult it really is/was.
The sets and costumes were intriguing in those early days of TV. The Train scenes seem to have been stored as "stock" footage and you will see the same general store footage repeated many times from show to show. I don't mind that the music is not original because the source and show music seems to fit the general mood(s). I am sure that the music copyright owner/publisher may have had a role in the decision to exclude it since these sync and mechanical rights can be complicated and expensive.
Petticoat Junction joins the list of the many shows from the 60's that were simple, entertaining, but not primitive in any way. It still amazes me that after watching a few episodes I feel relaxed, nostalgic and in a better mood.

World building a very Rural world at that. Welcome to the world of Bug Tussle, Pixley, Hooterville, Beverly Hills (yes that's what I mean) and of Course The Junction; (wait for it) Petticoat Junction. The Theme song is missing (Because this is public domain and the Theme is not, I reckon.) but in it's place is some mighty "Purrty Pickin'". The irascible Uncle Joe and his cynicism is mostly the crux of the comedic nucleus of the program. I.E. he makes the show not just entertaining but Funny as well. As a side note The Great Rural Purge of CBS was a rotten Idea with the exception of Mayberry R.F.D. (What was that all about? Flogging a dead horse I reckon.). Y'all come back now Y'a hear!

Petticoat Junction was one of the best of its kind. While some episodes could be very silly, it always sought to entertain, in an era when many people believed that was the main purpose of television. After a long, hard day, trying to make a living, it was thought that what people desired was to go home, put their feet up, and relax. Maybe engage in a little laughter, to take away the cares of the day, if only for half an hour. Was that such a terrible thought? We could do a lot worse than relive the bygone era of show like Petticoat Junction. Thank you to Kate Bradley, her girls, and the rest of that splendid cast, for giving us few years of laughter!

Good old fashioned humor. These are the earliest episodes made. I think they only got better with time. I didn't recall a couple of the actresses. I think they made some cast changes later on.

Overall good show and always fun to watch.
