This episode wraps up a two-part story with the Clampetts visiting Hooterville (see the review for "Buzz Bodine, Boy General"). Things pick up with the arrival of Mrs. Hathaway, Mr. Drysdale, and his "Singing Secretaries" trio. To impress farmer Howard Hewes -- whom Drysdale thinks is billionaire Howard Hughes -- he has his secretaries dress in matching white mini-skirts, go-go boots and black shirts to sing some specially written songs. The usual comedy-of-misunderstanding stuff that exists in nearly every episode of the series.
As before, all we see of the Petticoat Junction cast is Sam Drucker, Steve, and wife Betty Jo. Elly has nothing to do but take care of Betty's baby and Granny is also neglected. Her long not-really-a-romance story arc with Drucker just peters out. Jethro, dressed as a World War I ace, does some slapstick trying to fly Steve's crop duster, but Raymond Bailey's Drysdale easily steals the show.
