How well do you remember season one of 'Petticoat Junction'?

If you have what it takes, can you ace this quiz?

On Now
It’s the Petticoat Junction theme song!
Up Next:

There was always something happening down at the Shady Rest Hotel. Kate Bradley, played by Bea Benaderet, had her hands full with taking care of her business, three daughters, and dealing with her uncle Joe Carson's impulsive actions.

From season one to the finale, there was never a dull moment at the hotel. With a hit show like Petticoat Junction, it's challenging to remember what happened during all seven seasons, especially when some seasons have over thirty episodes. Unless you're a 'Petticoat Genius.'

If you have what it takes, can you ace this quiz? How well do you remember season one?

7/10. Guessed on most of them.

Haven't watched "Petticoat Junction" in a while, but of all those Filmways "rural comedies," this one was the most watchable and also made some sense. (And yes, I too often thought of the girls swimming nude in the water tank!)

BTW: For those who are interested, the first two black and white seasons of "Petticoat Junction" are rerun Saturday afternoons on Retro TV (check their website for more information). But be warned: Retro has replaced the original theme song and some incidental music with generic, royalty-free stock music; apparently the network must be hard up to pay the royalties for the original music. Therefore, I don't see those first season reruns on Retro anymore.

Unless, of course (and correct me if I'm wrong, but it's been a while since I've watched the show), MeTV airs that first season intact, with the original music. (Do they? I'll watch again on MeTV if so.)

would have loved to live in their zip code:)
bagandwallyfan52 JHP 17 months ago
DAPHNE (Hillary Horan ) on
Happy Days. I would have liked to
have lived in Daphnes zip code also
As well as the two Bobbi Jo's in
Hooterville. Daphne played the
Drums in Richies band after Bag and Sticks played the Drums and
before Chachi played the 🥁 Drums.
Being in Daisy's zip code in Hazzard
County from Dukes of Hazzard would also be great.

6/10… haven’t watched seasons 1 or 2 since they aired originally. I wasn’t interested in the show until the goddess, Lori Saunders became Bobbie Jo Bradley.
bagandwallyfan52 rikkirat 17 months ago
Pat Woodell and Lori Saunders
Both Bobbi Jo s were both
goddesses. All 3 Billie Jo's
Jeannine Riley Gunilla Hutton
And Meredith MacRae were all
beautiful women.
The 2 Henrietta Plouts -
Susan Walther and Lynette Winter
Were also good looking.
Betty Jo Bradley (Linda Kaye Henning )is on a class by herself.
