Anyway, the show was canned after two seasons.

A little trivia, a really young Jamie Lee Curtis was one of the nurses in the first season.
some more trivia; "Opperation Petticoat" was the first movie Tony Curtis made after his daughter-Jamie Lee Curtis-was born.
the Clampetts are in a fancy Beverly Hills jewelry store. Granny points to a tray of rubies.

Granny: "How much fer one o' them red diamonds?"
clerk: "Madam, those are rubies."
Granny: "OK ask her kin we buy one offa her."
clerk: " The ruby I am talking about is not a lady."
Granny: "Lissen, how she got them diamonds is her business. I'm just sayin' ask her kin we buy one from her."
