Season 1 Ep.7: The Tenant
The beautiful and sexy Jacqueline Moran, famed author of “Sex Is Here to Stay”, is staying at the Shady Rest to complete her latest novel. The reason for her choosing the Shady Rest gets Steve into some trouble. He met her the previous year when she visited the air force base where he was doing some reserve training. He, who acted as her base escort, recommended the hotel to her. To the Bradleys, Jackie seems like the type of woman who would have done whatever Steve wanted and more. Despite Steve vowing that he did nothing to encourage Jackie, she still fawns over him. As such, the Bradley sisters do whatever they can to slyly encourage her to leave for the sake of Steve and Betty Jo\’s marriage. Uncle Joe unwittingly thwarts their plans and makes her want to stay longer. But Billie Jo comes up with another plan of her own, using a little of Jackie’s own devices.
One of the most underrated sitcoms in television history, “Petticoat Junction” is a fine example of character-driven comedy. Though it is overshadowed by the other rural comedies, “Andy Griffith,” “The Beverly Hillbillies,” and “Green Acres,” “Petticoat Junction” had a warmth that continued throughout its 7 year run. Petticoat Junction centered around a small farming community of Hooterville provided the setting for this highly successful rural situation comedy. Kate Bradley was the widowed owner of the only transient housing in town, the Shady Rest Hotel. Helping her run the hotel were her three beautiful daughters, Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo. Also assisting was the girls’ lazy Uncle Joe, who had assumed the title of manager. The only way to reach the place was by the Hooterville Cannonball, an old train which made regular stops along the way, though never adhered to a strict schedule so as to better assist those living along the rail line. The episodes before Bea Benaderet’s untimely death are perhaps the best, but “Petticoat Junction” remains one of television’s undiscovered gems. This television classic (CBS-TV, 1963-1970) was one of the most successful and beloved situation comedies of the 1960s. Created by Paul Henning, the same mastermind behind “The Beverly Hillbillies” (also available in TVclassicshows.com), “Petticoat Junction” ranked as the fourth-highest rated series during its debut season.
