The long-running television classic Petticoat Junction was one of the most successful and beloved situation comedies of the 1960s.

Created by Paul Henning, the mastermind behind The Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction ranked as the fourth-highest rated series during its debut season.

Petticoat Junction follows Shady Rest Hotel proprietress Kate Bradley (Bea Benaderet) and her family. While lazy-but-lovable Uncle Joe (Edgar Buchanan) tends to his half-baked get-rich-quick schemes, Bradley usually has her hands full with the problems of her daughters.
