Trivia

Based on the stories told to Paul Henning by his wife, who had spent summers in Eldon, Missouri, at a small hotel located near the train station. See more »

Goofs

Even though the Cannonball is supposed to be a wood burning locomotive, and the tender car is loaded with chopped wood, the smokestack is blowing pitch black smoke. It should be blowing mostly white or light gray smoke from the wood. The black smoke reveals the real-life locomotive actually burned oil. 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.
