Petticoat Junction is an American situation comedy produced by Wayfilms (a joint venture of Filmways Television and Pen-Ten Productions) that originally aired on CBS from September 1963 to April 1970. The series is one of three interrelated shows about rural characters created by Paul Henning. Petticoat Junction was created upon the success of Henning's previous rural/urban-themed sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies (1962–1971). The success of Petticoat Junction led to a spin-off, Green Acres (1965–1971).

The setting for the series is the Shady Rest Hotel run by a woman, her uncle, and three daughters, located outside the farming town of Hooterville (later the location of Green Acres). The hotel is situated on the train line of the C. & F.W. Railroad, about halfway between the towns of Pixley and Hooterville, each approximately 25 miles (40 km) away. The series pilot introduced the feminist element where the youngest daughter, Betty Jo, was skilled at driving the train. As a train engineer was traditionally a man's job, executives from the train company's corporate headquarters were shocked when they learned of this.

Regarding the show's title, Petticoat Junction, the location of the hotel is an unscheduled train stop on an unconnected branch line, not a junction (where two or more lines meet). The opening titles of the series feature a display of the three daughters' petticoats or frilled underskirts hanging on the side of the railway's water tower where the three originally teenage girls are bathing in the nude, or skinny-dipping. As a petticoat does not have a "junction," the reference may be a double entendre to the junction at the top of the girls' thighs. Additionally the show has a double entendre in the program's opening theme. During the theme song's line, "Lotsa curves, you bet, and even more when you get to the junction: Petticoat Junction," the program has shots of the train on a curving track, the girls' petticoats, and the three naked girls seen from shoulders up in the water tower.
