Goofs:
Plot holes: 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 »

The Inventor of Jiggle T.V., 22 April 2003
Author: Brian Washington (Sargebri@att.net) from Los Angeles, California

When this show first premiered its biggest attraction were the three Bradley daughters. However, you really got to see a great comedy and the real stars were the late great Bea Benederet as Kate and the late and equally great Edgar Buchanan as Uncle Joe, who was always looking to get rich quick. The girls themselves were pretty well fleshed out characters themselves. Billie Jo was the ambitious star-struck one, Bobbie Jo was the somewhat dim bulb and Betty Jo was the tomboy. Betty Jo became the most evolved character as you saw her grow up from being a girl who was pretty much pre-occupied with sports into a beautiful young woman who eventually settled down and married the man of her dreams. Too bad Bea Benederet passed away. When that happened the wind seemed to go out of the show and within two years it was gone. Perhaps it was a precursor of things to come becuase within a year after it had gone off the air all the great rural television shows were virtually wiped out in the infamous purge of 1971.
