Episode Summary

EDIT
Admiral Jed Clampett
AIRED:
Drysdale has hopes that Jed will buy a yacht and join the yacht club with him. The Clampetts are all ready to go, except for Granny who has been listening to Jethro and is now afraid of drowning and sharks. Jethro is sent away so Granny doesn’t worry anymore and ends up getting Jed an Admiral’s uniform from his movie studio. They head down to the pier, but get lost and mistake a Navy vessel for a yacht. The crew aboard this boat believes Jed is a first class admiral and tries to impressive him. Jed thinks they are trying to sell it to him. In the end, he decides to pass the boat, and the crew is happy because they have passed inspection, though Jed is confused because they just lost a sale.moreless

  • NOTES (1)

    • This is the very first episode in color.
      It is also the first episode in which Donna Douglas says "This Has Been A Filmways Presentation!", as the production company logo appears at the end credits. The black and white episodes used a male announcer for the Filmways logo, Bill Baldwin.
