Trivia

The dog on the show was simply named "Dog". While the dog's name was Higgins the Dog (one episode was called "Higgins Come Home"), the name was never mentioned by any characters. His last acting role was as the title character in the movie Benji (1974), which was also Edgar Buchanan's last movie. See more »

Goofs

In several episodes, characters either refer to or are hiding in the baggage car, but in full shots of the train in movement there is only one car, the passenger car, attached to the engine. See more »

A fine piece of Americana
28 March 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Petticoat Junction is just in the process of being rerun on a Canadian TV network, and I must say they really don't make TV like that anymore. It's actually my first time to watch this show (I was not around for original airing in the 1960s yet), but I had been familiar with Green Acres before.

The only regret I have about this show is that a number of crucial characters had to be written out of the show (due to the actors' demise - Charley or Kate Bradley, for example), which left an empty void towards the end of that, otherwise, wonderful show.
