** Shares a universe with ''Series/PetticoatJunction,'' which shares a universe with ''TheBeverlyHillbillies''. Yet one episode has the Hootervillian Playhouse use a ''Beverly Hillbillies'' TV script as a play, and makes jokes about creator Paul Henning and star Buddy Ebsen.

* {{Crossover}}: Characters from this show and ''Series/PetticoatJunction'' occasionally gravitated to the other. And one 1968 episode of ''TheBeverlyHillbillies'' had the Clampetts traveling to Hooterville, leading to characters from all three shows intermingling. Once to the point where Mr. Drysdale was physically ill at Elly Mae even being ''interested'' in Eb.

** As mentioned above, after the first season, most of the ''Series/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.

* BilingualBonus: Eva Gabor speaks actual Hungarian on occasion. It doesn't always match up with the captions sometimes provided. In "The Road", Lisa is misquoted as saying "That darn road". What she's actually saying is "Things like this never happened in Hungary!".



* CloudCuckooland: Although characters carried over from ''Series/PetticoatJunction'' are mostly excluded from this. The jury's still out on Mr. Drucker.

characters carried over from ''Series/PetticoatJunction'' are mostly excluded from this. The jury's still out on Mr. Drucker.Drucker.
** Hungary, leastways Hungary according to Lisa Douglas. Those unfamiliar with Hungarian history and culture (and even those who are familiar with Hungary) might be surprised to learn that most popular sports in the country are Monkey Racing and Goulash Betting. Hungary also has a special reward for military heroes who happen to be ducks like Drobny, Lisa's pet from back home.

* 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.
