Country folk were big business in the 60s, thanks to producer Paul Henning.The creator of the hit show The Beverly Hillbillies knew a good theme when he saw one.In the fictional town of Hooterville he placed not only the Douglases of Green Acres but a widow, Kate Bradley, and her three gorgeous daughters : Betty Jo, Bobbie Jo and Billie Jo.Between 1963 and 1970 the series featured two actresses as Bobbie Jo -- Pat Woodell (1963-1965) and Lori Saunders (1965-1970) -- and three young women as Billie Jo, Jeannine Riley (1963-1965), Gunilla Hutton (1965-1966) and Meredith MacRae (1966-1970).But there was only one Betty Jo, Linda Kaye Henning.Though she was the boss's daughter, no one ever accused Paul Henning of favoritism.Says Linda, 53, with a chuckle, I got the least billing, the least money -- everything. And, she adds, I loved it..
By the time Linda Henning was doing showcases and theater in her native California, her dad had already spent years writing for George Burns and Gracie Allen, had written the 1961 movie hit Lover Come Back and had been nominated for an Oscar for his screenplay for 1964'sBedtime Story.Henning recalls, I was doing something with Bea Benederet's son, Jack Bannon (who later appeared on the series Lou Grant), and Bea came to see the show with my parents.When CBS asked Paul Henning for a series, he wrote Petticoat Junction, with Bea in mind as the lead.She said to him, Have your own daughter be a character.' He would never have thought of it.He was always worried about nepotism.So he let me try out and left it up to the rest of the people involved in the series.The first year everybody was looking at me to see if was I going to be the brat kid or what.But it all worked out..
Linda Kaye HenningThe first year everybody was looking at me to see if I was going to be the brat kid or what, says Henning.
Linda was 18 when the series started, though Betty Jo was supposed to be 15.I looked it, Henning tells PEOPLE Online.I was very young when I started -- it was like going to school for seven years with all the best teachers.Bea Benederet was a mentor in a way.She was a wonderful lady to work with.We had the finest character actors in the business on our show -- Edgar Buchanan, Smiley Burnette, Regis Toomey, Elvia Allman.And we got to do so many fun things.
Mike did another part on the show the first year that we were on, says Henning.He then came on the show as a regular in the part of Steve in the fourth season.We were married about five years, and we be still friends. She says Minor continues to work as an actor in New York, where he was on All My Children and As The World Turnsfor a time, in addition to performing in the theater.
For the last four years Henning has been married to actor-musician Leon Adams.They have no children.She has continued her acting career and can currently be seen as the mother of Quinn, the main Slider on the series Sliders, now on the Sci-Fi Channel.Henning also works as a member of the California Artists Radio Theater.We do plays on the radio before a live audience, tape them, and they are later broadcast, she says.i have worked with people like Lynn Redgrave and (the late) Roddy McDowall..
Hennings' non-show biz activities include working at an L.A. gift shop.She says, it be something I really enjoy doing, because I like the people and it gives me flexibility with the hours. She also lectures and leads tours for the Los Angeles Zoo.
Linda Kaye HenningHenning currently appears on the sci-fi show Sliders.
As for the other Petticoat gals, Lori Saunders lives in Southern California and concentrates on her sculpting and painting.She recently had a showing of her pieces, and a second exhibit is in the works.She is married and has a son, Ron, and a daughter, Stacy.
Linda Kaye Henning is thrilled that people are interested in Billy Jo, Bobbie Jo and Betty Jo.It was one of the most wonderful events of my life, she says.Even getting up at five in the morning..

The 2006 CWCHS grad, the son ..., 25 July 2009 [cached]
The 2006 CWCHS grad, the son of Van and Linda Henning of Phillipstown, is an incoming junior at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., He is a management major with plans to be a pilot once he earns his lieutenant's bars and begins to fulfill his five-year commitment to the Air Force (or 10 years if he does become a pilot). Henning recently completed a trip to Bolivia, where he worked with a group of volunteers to help a small village in the mountains obtain a clean water supply. He said the trip was an adventure and he was inspired to take it because of the words of Mrs. Jacobs, who he recalled once telling him that there was more to be learned in life than just what is reflected in a grade card. He received an e-mail at academy from a fellow student who was starting a group on campus called Engineers Without Borders USA. The student volunteers use their engineering skills, in conjunction with a similar professional group of volunteers with a chapter in Colorado Springs, to help anywhere in the world their skills can be applied to make life better for those in the area they serve. Henning said he read the e-mail, recalled Jacobs' words of inspiration to see the world and learn from it, and signed up in December 2008.
