  • Episode Description
  • The Clampetts prepare to go fight the invading Grunion, while Drysdale works to keep the Clampetts believing Mark has turned coward. The Clampetts head to the beach and set up their headquarters. They look out on the water and see a couple of surfers and mistake them for the Grunion. Elly captures a surfer boy and makes him say he is a Grunion. She brings him to the camp, and Granny tells Jethro to get a Grunion so he can eat. Jethro heads out and gets a girl on the beach who says she is a Grunion because she, like Jethro, is starving. He brings her back to the family’s fort. When the boy and girl meet each other, they joke about being a boy Grunion and a girl Grunion, and Granny thinks that the people of the island of Grun can’t tell each other apart.moreless

    • Granny: Put down the vittles. Jethro: They won’t be safe. Jed: Put em down boy. (Jethro puts them on the ground) Jed: Now they’s safe.

    • Helen: One word from me to Mr. Clampett and your goose is cooked. Drysdale: That’s blackmail! You know, you have a very unscrupulous side to you! I like that. We could work very well together.

    • Granny: Would you like some gravy? Surfer Boy: Groovy! (Granny heads up to Jed) Granny: On the island of Grun, they call “gravy” “groovy.”

    • Elly: Them Grunions must be dumb as Jethro. Jed: Elly, if Jethro was to take his brain to the isle of Grun, they’d make him king.

    Trivia (2)

    • The Clampetts mistake Grunion for surfers, but they have talked about surfing before on the show. Why did they forget what surfing is and think that these surfers are Grunion who are "poor sailors?"

    • Goof: When Granny is looking out at the “Grunion,” actually surfers, she says “Oops” before the surfers fall off the boards when she should say it after they fall.
