  • Episode Description
  • The Clampetts and Miss Jane arrive in Hooterville for the holidays, but Jethro and Drysdale stay behind. On Christmas Day, Jane calls her boss to wish him a Merry Christmas, but he is in a bad mood. After he tells her that she is fired, Jane tells him that she could just go to work for Sam Drucker, since Jed gave him a new bank. Upon hearing this, Drysdale passes out. When he comes to, he decides he needs to go to Hooterville to save his largest account. But Jethro refuses to drive him and tells him to take the truck, along with Elly’s bear, which he does. Meanwhile in Hooterville, Granny is trying to figure if Sam has proposed to her or not, and after hearing him talk to Elly about a marriage, to Eb who wants her hand, Granny believes that Sam likes younger girls. So to appear younger, she dresses as a Victorian-age girl and scares both Sam and Uncle Joe off.moreless
