It was probably late season 1 or early season 2. Checking IMDB, Barbara Pepper appeared in three episodes of PJ, all in 1964. Doris' original name was "Ruthie", but this was changed in subsequent appearances.

Yep, this was one of the early episodes before Alf & Ralph were introduced (which was episode 15). Sid Melton was playing a different character entirely (Ed Ferguson) who never appeared again and/or was morphed into the Alf character.

That's a good one!

That's not a continuity error. It's a small difference borne from the act of filming with one camera and a person moving around between setups. A continuity error would be if she had it on the other arm, or it disappeared entirely. You can't expect someone's hair, clothes, pieces of straw on the ground, etc. to remain frozen between shots that may have been filmed hours apart.

Arnold fluctuates from being a big male pig to a smaller female. Then eventually they settle on the smaller female.

The Douglas bedroom closet is basically outside. So is the shower. Also no glass, just open air in the bedroom window.

Oliver and Lisa aren't poor. Why dont they invest in the farm and spruce it up. Totally fix up the place. Buy a new a tractor. I know then no show.

I don't think the Beverly Hillbillies could exist in the Green Acres universe. Green Acres takes place in a surreal, twilight zone type universe, whereas the B. Hillbillies's world seemed normal for the most part.

I notice in the Beverly Hillbillies when the Clampetts visited Hooterville, that Hooterville was more normal and not surreal like in Green Acres.

oh, so they DID show the Ziffels on PJ! I asked once on here if they ever did and someone said no.
Well then did they ever show Alf and Ralph Monroe, Mr. Kimble, Mr. Trendle or Newt Kiley on PJ? I know on one of the later PJ episodes they showed Mr. Haney in one scene.

Newt Kiley (Kay Kuter) appeared many times on Petticoat Junction.

With regard to the Ziffels, note that I only said that Fred called out to his wife. I can’t confirm that she ever did or didn’t appear on PJ. Fred was seen with his hogs very early on.

Yeah all 3 Ziffels appeared on PJ. The only other GA characters to appear were Mr. Drucker (regular on both shows), Newt, the Douglases, Eb, and Haney.

Yeah I agree. BH could be weird but never outright surreal like GA. The Clampetts seemed to only visit the PJ section of Hooterville which was more in line with their series.

No BH characters ever appeared on GA. Every time they mentioned it, it was referred to as just a TV show.
