"These two classic country comedy shows from the 60s are true time pieces of a simpler time. But they are also amusing and extremely charming slices of Americana. Since MPI has released the only authorized "Petticoat" and "Hillbillies" DVDs to date (see their "Ultimate Collections" for both shows), these are the only DVDs to feature the wonderful theme songs that introduce each series over the opening credits. Also, Linda Kaye Henning, daughter of creator-producer Paul Henning and co-star of "Petticoat" (as daughter Betty Jo Bradley) provides informative introductions to all 3 shows on this DVD plus does a sweet Christmas greeting with co-star Frank Cady (known as Hooterville General Store owner Sam Drucker). There's also some original cast commercials from both series, including a great Jethro recitation of "The Night Before Christmas" for Kellogg's Corn Flakes. This DVD is a real treat and a great buy. (P.S. There's also another bonus - a Christmas episode from Henning's earlier series from the late 50's -- "The Bob Cummings Show/Love That Bob" with Dwayne Hickman and Rosemary DeCamp."
Ya'all have a Merry Christmas now, ya hear?

"Oh what fun it is to ride on a first airplane ride with the Clampetts going home to the hills for Christmas! Here are 2 Christmas episodes of the Beverly Hillbillies and one from its spin-off, Petticoat Junction. But wait! There's more!! Also included are some vintage commercials that aired with the original broadcasts. When was the last time you heard the now-way unPC jingle: o/~ Winston tastes good like a " " cigarette should o/~ As Jed Clampett would say: WoooooooooooooDoggies! It's down-home-spun fun in Hooterville and Beverly Hills for the Holidays. /TundraVision, Amazon Reviewer"

"If you are looking for 3 episodes of good TV shows from the 1960's buy this Christmas DVD. If you are familiar with the "Hillbillies" and "Junction", you'll love these Christmas episodes. If you are not familiar with these 2 shows, buy it anyway for good family viewing. My overall comment----- Buy it, you'll like it. "

"As these were two of my favourite comedy shows, it was a great pleasure to be able to watch these episodes again. I got a great deal of enjoyment out of looking at them. It is well presented and a must for anyone who likes good comedy just as I do. It has good information on how the shows were created which is a bonus to me. I would recommend this to anyone who like me enjoys watching these shows."
