|The Beverly Hillbillies & Petticoat Junction: Ultimate Christmas Collection features three Christmas specials from the classic TV series:|
Home For Christmas (1962) - When Granny, Uncle Jed, Elly Mae and Jethro decide to return to the country for the holidays, they discover airline travel. Back home, Cousin Pearl and Jethrine make plans to visit the Clampetts in Beverly Hills.
Christmas At The Clampetts (1963) - The Hillbillies are confused on Christmas when they find a snow-covered tree in their foyer surrounded by gifts, unaware they are part of banker Milburn Drysdale's strategy to keep them in Beverly Hills.
Cannonball Christmas (1963) - Uncle Joe, Kate Bradley and her daughters at the Shady Rest Hotel find their holiday disrupted when the Scrooge-like Homer Bedloe of the C&FW Railroad threatens to close-down the beloved Hooterville Cannonball.
Editor's NoteSpend Christmas with the simple, down-home folk who populate two of the most popular 1960s sitcoms. This collection includes two episodes of THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES and one episode of PETTICOAT JUNCTION. In "Home for Christmas," the Clampetts decide to visit Cousin Pearl (Bea Benaderet), and take off in their jet--or the "flying bus," as they call it--to go home for the holidays. Meanwhile, their country relatives are on their way to visit them in Beverly Hills. Then, in "Christmas with the Clampetts," Mr. Drysdale (Raymond Bailey) gets the family a boatload of holiday presents--but the hillbillies don't know what to do with any of them. Elly May (Donna Douglas), however, manages to give Mrs. Drysdale (Harriet E. MacGibbon) the present she has always dreamed of. Finally, in "Cannonball Christmas," the folks of PETTICOAT JUNCTION receive a visit from Homer Bedloe (Charles Lane), a representative from the railway company. Misconstruing much of what he finds among these small-town folk, he threatens to shut down the Cannonball for good!
