"Petticoat Junction" was the brainchild of "The Beverly Hillbillies" creator Paul Henning, and centered on the exploits of hotel proprietor Kate Bradley, her beautiful teen-age daughters Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, Betty Jo and, of course, the ever-idle Uncle Joe. Beginning in 1963, the show brought the small town of Hooterville and The Shady Rest Hotel into American homes for seven years. Presented here are seven "lost episodes" from the first two seasons. Filmed in black and white, these earlier shows never made it into syndication.
Please Buy My Violets: Uncle Joe foolishly invests the family savings in a perfume franchise.
A Night at the Hooterville Hilton: A well known travel columnist arrives to do a write up on the Shady Rest.
Kate's Recipe for Hot Rhubarb: Kate attempts to teach bookish Bobbie Joe how to attract boys.
Spur Line to Shady Rest: The railroad home office sends an efficiency expert to investigate the Hooterville Cannonball.
Bobbie Jo & the Beatnik: Bobbie Joe falls under the spell of a cynical poet from New York City (played by Dennis Hopper).
Last Chance Farm: Uncle Joe convinces a pair of wealthy women that the Shady Rest is an exclusive weight loss retreat.
Herby Gets Drafted: Sam Drucker's stock boy is entering the service, and he doesn't feel that anyone is going to miss him, so Kate and the girls throw him a going away party.
Hooterville's most famous residents invite you to kick back with them at the Shady Rest. Guaranteed to change your middle name to "-Joe".
