Bobbie Jo, Billie Jo, and Betty Jo Bradley are three sisters living with their Uncle Joe who owns the family hotel, and is always coming up with zany ideas. Their whole town revolves around the train "The Cannon Ball". The show also includes Kate (the mother), Steve (Betty Jo's boyfriend) and Sam Drucker (Store Keeper) who is also in "Green Acres".

Kate's youngest daughter, redheaded Betty Jo (Linda Henning) is something of an early pioneer for the women's liberation movement serving both as the relief engineer on the Cannon Ball train locomotive and as a shortstop on the Hooterville Hawks baseball team. See more »
With the Shady Rest miles from any town, and the only road a badly rutted fire road, the Cannonball was supposedly the only way to get to the Hotel. As the years unwind, however, the writers ignored this fact more and more and have characters arriving without any regard to when, or from where, the Cannonball arrived. Sometimes, person(s) A would enter the hotel immediately after the train gets in, and then a few minutes later person(s) B would enter, but person(s) A never saw them on the train. Other times, people arrive at the hotel, and then a few minutes later the train arrives. See more »
I will say Petticoat Junction is an enjoyable show. I am 56 with grandchildren if they were watching this show I would not worry something inappropriate popping up and surprising me or my grandchildren. I used to watch this show with my grandfather good times. This is a feel good show Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres are also enjoyable. I realize times change and people taste in television will change. These show would not make it today.These shows are still popular with those of us who grew up watching them. When I watched these shows I knew most problems could not be fixed in a half hour. Kate was great her death at such a young age was very sad she was the show. I am glad she got a starring role before her death Paul Henning was a great man for giving Bea this opportunity. Her supporting cast was also wonderful. This was a simpler time.
