The 7th Petticoat Junction crossover episode in season 7
5 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A sequel to "Christmas in Hooterville", Drysdale is arrested for vagrancy in the tiny hick town of Ripley. He was on his way to Hooterville in the Clampett's truck. And, for no good reason, he also had their pet bear along for the ride. (A real bear is used in almost every scene.)

Jed calls Sam Drucker over in Petticoat Junction-land for help. "Green Acres" regular Fred Ziffel (Hank Patterson) makes an appearance in Drucker's General Store. He also did 12 episodes of P.J.

The rest of the plot involves a standard comedic courtroom scene (a sitcom staple in the 60s) with a judge ably played by familiar character actor J. Pat O'Malley. An okay episode but nothing to write home about. The next episode, "Problem Bear", is more or less a continuation of this story, minus any crossover cast members.
