Trivia

During the run of this show, Charley Pratt (Smiley Burnette) was the engineer of the Cannonball, and Floyd Smoot (Rufe Davis) was the conductor. Burnette died during the fourth season, and Floyd took over Charley's duties as engineer, as well as continuing his own duties as conductor. 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. In episode 1, this is explained away by saying that they're burning ties from the railroad. See more »

Alternate Versions

2003 DVD release of four first-season episodes by Brentwood Entertainment replaces the well-known opening theme with an uncredited, instrumental piece of music. See more »

To always be remembered
8 August 1999 | by JennLynnSee all my reviews

Petticoat Junction will always be revered as one of America's best television sitcoms, home-grown. The characters were so innocent. Who wouldn't fall in love with the Shady Rest Hotel and the Cannonball?
