Episode Summary

EDIT
Bonnie, Flatt, and Scruggs
AIRED:
The Clampetts are preparing for Lester and Gladys Flatt and Earl Scruggs' visit, not knowing they are doing promotional shots for the movie “Bonnie and Clyde.” But when they find out, the Clampetts start taking interest. Jethro and Elly borrow Lester and Gladys’ Bonnie and Clyde costumes and scare Dyrsdale. When he finds out, he decides to play a prank on Cratchit, an accountant. Two cops arrest him, thinking he is actually a gangster. Jane gets him out of jail by telling the police they were shooting a Bonnie and Clyde commercial for the bank. This gives Drysdale an idea to make a commercial where all the great bandits on the thirties clean out every bank in Los Angeles and when they get to his bank, Super Banker stops them, which was what Jane told the cops. He gets the Clampetts and Gladys to play the gangsters and Flatt and Scruggs to do the theme. The commercial goes well, until the cast "robs" the bank and drives off, after Cratchit allows it to happen, since Drysdale cheated him out of money.moreless

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Jethro is bigger than Lester, but he borrowed his Clyde costume, and it fit perfectly. For a man with longer limbs, how did a smaller suit fit so perfectly?

    • QUOTES (17)

      • (Lester, Earl, and Gladys come out of the car in their 1930's outfits and prop guns)

      • (Jed is told he did a good job blowing on Granny's jug when Lester and Earl were doing their song)
