To always be remembered
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?

Trivia

Seasons 1 & 2 are airing on Retro TV at this time (2015) in the U.S. Unfortunately all of the opening, background, & closing music are gone because they trying to shorten content for more commercials. In some cases dialog is not heard.. Also for those that want to know the lyrics here they are. Note, these are the full lyrics as written by Flatt and Scruggs. The T.V. show used a short version. Come ride the little train, that is rolling down the tracks, to the junction. Forget about your cares, it is time to relax, at the junction. Lotsa curves, you bet. Even more, when you get, to the junction. Petticoat Junction. There's a little hotel, called the Shady Rest, at the junction. Petticoat Junction. It is run by Kate, come and be her guest, at the junction. Petticoat Junction. And that's Uncle Joe, he's a movin' kind of slow, at the junction, Petticoat Junction (this is where the TV version ends). When they hear the dinner bell, from the Shady Rest Hotel, at the junction. Folks will walk a country mile, for that chicken country-style, at the junction, But the dishes, to observe, are those pretty gals, who serve, at the junction,. Petticoat Junction.


Goofs

With the Shady Rest miles from any town, and the only road a badly rutted fire road, the Cannonball was supposedly the only way to get to the Hotel. As the years unwind, however, the writers ignored this fact more and more and have characters arriving without any regard to when, or from where, the Cannonball arrived. Sometimes, person(s) A would enter the hotel immediately after the train gets in, and then a few minutes later person(s) B would enter, but person(s) A never saw them on the train. Other times, people arrive at the hotel, and then a few minutes later the train arrives.


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.
