* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: CrossOver above explains this. The first season was more of a extension of ''PetticoatJunction'', considering the citizens of Hooterville, including Kate and Uncle Joe, welcoming Oliver and Lisa to town, and helping them adjust (in fact, throughout the first season, Uncle Joe kept trying to flirt with Oliver's mother). However, by the second season, the show further branched off on its own, and many of the ''PetticoatJunction'' crossovers and references had become few and far between with some rare examples (such as the episode "Eb Discovers the Birds and the Bees"). In fact, Drucker's General Store became the only evidence that the two shows shared the same universe, and Mr. Drucker himself ended up being the only crossover character.

** As mentioned above, after the first season, most of the ''PetticoatJunction'' cast (sans Mr. Drucker) pretty much disappeared from this show altogether, with the exception of occasional mentions throughout the rest of the series. Justified with Kate Bradley, due to the death of Bea Benederit.

** Probably justifiable in some way, but in one early episode, Oliver knows that Lisa is up to something when she gives him a glass of milk because he doesn't like milk (she had spiked it to put him to sleep). In a much later episode, a highschooler who has a PrecociousCrush on him, is thrilled to see that he loves milk because she does too.

* ActorAllusion: In a rather subtle example, while visiting Oliver and Lisa, Oliver's mother watches television, while other townsfolk join her (against her wishes). They watch an old Music/GeneAutry movie, which Mr. Haney seems to really enjoy (except for him ''always'' getting the girl); Pat Buttram was also Autry's regular sidekick on ''TheGeneAutryShow''.

* TheOtherDarrin: A different actress played Mrs. Ziffle in later episodes.

* RecycledSet: It's clear this show only has one painted flat that's used for scenery, no matter what part of Hooterville you're in, let alone, what part of the Douglas far you're on. Pay close attention, you can see the exact same rolling hills and distant mountain in the background almost everywhere.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Averted. The show pretty much relied on the stigma that modern people (well, modern for TheSixties) were flocking more to city life, and leaving the country and farming behind, with Oliver being the biggest exception. Other than that, Mr. Drucker directly mentions the year 1966 in one second season (1966-67) episode.

* WriteWhoYouKnow: Pat Buttram based his performance of Mr. Haney on Colonel Tom Parker, Music/ElvisPresley's manager, who he had met several years before when Parker worked as a carnival barker.
