Ignoring the mess they made of the Green Acres background music in season 3 of Petticoat Junction (Why the geniuses didn't just substitute regular Petticoat Junction jingles in those moments instead of Heyes tunes, I'll always wonder), there's even a cut song in an early season 1 episode of Petticoat Junction.

But unlike how they excised the Green Acres stuff, this season 1 cut is such a seamless one that you'd never suspect anything was amiss if you didn't know the episode well (It's uncut on MPI's "Ultimate" release that had the first 2/3's or so of season 1 and on different streaming services like Tubi that carry those public domain episodes).

The one thing that the music situation in Petticoat Junction has in its favor I suppose are that a lot of the songs get repeated several times during the course of seasons 4-7. I assume that's easier and cheaper from a licensing perspective than if a different song was sang every single time someone like Mike Minor or Meredith MacRae sings.

Could there be some music clearance problems in the later seasons of The Hillbillies? I remember Roy Clark and Pat Boone guest starring in some episodes.
That's possible but those should be feasible since its only a few episodes in total. But Petticoat Junction has music clearance issues in the majority of episodes starting with season 4.
