The part of Betty Jo Bradley is barely seen from a distance and heard in this episode but isn't being played Linda Kaye Henning in this episode, only episode of Petticoat Junction I've noticed without her. See more »
In the scene where Homer Bedloe misses the train to the Shady Rest, he's seen running towards Sam Drucker's General Store. The video is a reversed image, though: the name on the store's sign is backwards. See more »
How can you not wane nostalgic for then "good ole days" after watching this gem. There is a Grinch, a bunch of heroes fighting Charles Lane playing a Scrooge who wants to ruin it all for everyone. Still evokes a decent belly laugh or two, even in ultra jaded viewers as myself. Even though anyone watching this realizes it's a wistful fantasy, we all secretly wish we could be heading towards "Hootersville" for our white Christmas. Just sit back, forget the days trials and tribulations, and let this great escape back into a simpler time and place in TV land sweep over you. I guarantee you won't regret it. Don't worry about who is going to play Santy Claus, there is always going to be a big fat gobbler waiting for all who come across the threshold on Christmas day.
