Episode Summary

Granny is glued to the television set the Clampetts received for Christmas, especially with one TV Western star, Quirt Manly. She really wants to meet him, and Drysdale arranges it to happen. And Granny already has him set up for Elly May, because she knows he is probably the only who can tame the vine-swinging girl. However, when he arrives at the mansion, the Clampetts see he isn’t who they thought he was. Quirt Manly is actually a short actor with a high-pitched voice who doesn’t do any of his own stunts or riding. But Elly begins liking him, though Granny is disappointed. Jed tries to make Quirt look more impressive, but without much luck. Meanwhile, Jethro borrowed Quirt’s car and many girls on the street believe he is their favorite Western star. When they all arrive at the mansion, Jed tells the girls he’ll pay them if they make a fuss over the little cowboy inside. They do, but over Skipper, in a cowboy outfit, instead. And Granny begins shooting at Quirt, chasing him out.moreless

        Jed: Not like that rascal. Granny says he can drop seven, eight russlers with one shot.
