The Beverly Hillbillies

Show Summary

Jed Clampett and kin, a poor Ozark Hillbilly family, were barely surviving until one lucky day. Jed while hunting for food in his swamp missed his target and struck the ground with his shot. Up through the ground came a bubblin' crude, Oil that is, Black Gold, Texas Tea.

After selling his swamp to the OK Oil Company for $25 Million, Cousin Pearl convinces Jed he should move his family to Beverly Hills. So Jed, along with his gorgeous daughter Elly May, feisty mother-in-law Granny, and half-witted nephew Jethro, all head to this new land inhabited by movie stars and the well-off.

Jed and his family get to Beverly Hills, and their money goes into the Commerce Bank of Beverly Hills, with President Mr. Drysdale. For the nine years the clan is in Beverly Hills, all kinds of things happen. They try to get their beautiful daughter Elly May married. Their nephew Jethro gets a high education, highest in the family - he completes school through the sixth grade. Granny has her fights with Mrs. Drysdale and gets romanced by various men. And Jed takes hold of a movie studio. They travel to New York, Washington, and England. They make silent movies. And they make a few good friends.moreless

    • PHHHHHHH.....

      How can anyone enjoy this load of crap?!!!! The title is stupid and this is one of the worst sitcoms ever, along with 30 Rock and all the Disney Channel sitcoms (except for Even Stevens). More like The Beverly Idiots.
    • Trying to find an episode

      This isn't a review, but a call for help! Does anyone recall an episode in which there was a scene with a young man (maybe Arte Johnson?) in a convertible outside of the Clampetts' mansion, with a German Shepherd in the car with him, ferociously barking and growling at him? Please let me know if you know which episode this is. On IMDB, Arte Johnson does not have a Beverly Hillbillies credit listed, so maybe it was another actor.moreless

    • Legendary Sitcom

      What's the wittiest show I've ever seen "Beverly Hillbillies" would probably my answer! This crazy sitcom is really a bomb!!!! The actors is plainly talented with great acting ability and everyone is a comedian here so no dull moments and each episodes are truly enjoyable . I have great love for Granny, of course! She's really great and funny! I also searched everywhere to obtain my own copy of this show and found it at memorylanedvd. com . Glad I received good quality set! Eventhough, I have seen all of the episodes of it before, I still enjoy watching every moment of it until now! One of the renowned or I must say the Legendary Sitcom ever-produced!moreless
    • An Original Fish-out-of-water Classic

      There's always something funny about watching a fish live on land - people who just don't seem to fit in, yet rise above their surroundings. It could be the most naive country boy ever, recruited by the Marines. Or it could be an Eastern European heiress married to a Harvard Attorney, choosing to live on a God-forsaken farm. Or it could be the poorest of poor, suddenly finding wealth, and having no idea how to handle it.

      When The Beverly Hillbillies was running, it reminded me of a similar show: The Second Hundred Years. TSHY never made it, because it tried to compete with perfection in The Beverly Hillbillies.moreless
