Petticoat Junction (2003) Review
(More customer reviews)I loved watching re-runs of this show in the late 70's when I was a kid. I remember the opening theme songs being a big part of what I liked about this show. There were 2 opening theme songs. The 2nd theme song replaced the 1st one when June Lockhart joined the cast. I have one of the other Petticoat Junctions DVD (No theme songs on that one Either) and though it has only 4 episodes verses the 7 on this DVD I like it just a bit better than this one. I guess it is because one of the episodes that is titled "The Beatnik" has Dennis Hopper playing the beatnik and I am a fan of most of his work. This DVD is a good buy especially if you are a big fan of the show. None of the shows are in color as advertised, and the picture quality isn't as clear and bright as it could be. But again, one of my biggest disappointments was the absence of the opening theme song. The theme song is replaced with very boring banjo music. If you like the opening theme songs as much as I do you can give them a listen. I had both of the opening theme songs to Petticoat Junction and thought I would share them with other fans of the show. They are both mp3's. I hope you enjoy listening to them.Petticoat Junction 1963-1970 (Opening Theme, 1) (...)

The Beverly Hillbillies creator, executive producer Paul Henning, also invented the similarly popular Petticoat Junction, a half-hour series set in Hooterville, a small agricultural community. Here, widow Kate Bradley ran a modest hotel called The Shady Rest with the aid of her three attractive daughters.
