    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The supercharged locomotive that is now "standard equipment" on the C&FW Railroad, as shown in their office, is a model of a Santa Fe E1A locomotive, built 1937-1938. The model is even in Santa Fe paint, with a small "C&FW Railroad" sticker over the Indian head logo used on the side of the locomotive. At 25 years of age, it's not a very new locomotive for a railroad that is supposed to be "modern and progressive".

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Charley: Betty Jo, you're getting to that age where boys got their eye on you, and it just ain't the most romantic thing for the love of your life to come crawling out of a locomotive boiler.
        Betty Jo: As far as I'm concerned, Billie Jo can have the boys. I'm in love with the Hooterville Cannonball!
        Charley: Well that's fine for now, hun, but one of these days you're gonna wanna be hugging something that can hug you back.

    • NOTES (2)

      • During casting, Sharon Tate was hired to play the role of the eldest Bradley daughter, Billie Jo. But when nude photos of her surfaced in Playboy, concerns over their impact on the family sitcom led to her being replaced with Jeannie Riley before filming began. Though, several publicity photos of Sharon with Bea, Linda, and Pat Woodell were shot and can be found online.

      • Due to his success with "The Beverly Hillbillies", Paul Henning was basically given carte blanche with kicking off a sister series to the program. Thus, Petticoat Junction never had a "pilot" episode, it was bought immediately by CBS before production.
