    I've always really liked this episode, but the last time I watched it had to have been in the early 80s, and at that time I wasn't as knowledgeable about other series from the 60s. The episode is part satire. Officer Grover is parodying Don Knotts as Barney Fife. Joe Cragmire is based on Forrest Tucker's F Troop character, and in one scene the music is very much like F Troop's theme song. Charlie is reminiscent of shopkeeper Sam Drucker, while Craig reminds me of the Steve Elliott character, both of whom were in Petticoat Junction.
