Episode Summary

EDIT
Foggy Mountain Soap
AIRED:
Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs visit the Clampetts, just as Jethro and Elly are preparing to go Hollywood for them and their new movie. But the pair has come to contribute a song for the Foggy Mountain Soap commercial, ruining Elly and Jethro’s plans. Jed and Granny meet the man responsible for the commercial, Commodore Stewart, and the Commodore wants the Clampetts in the commercial. So Jed and Granny become the stars, with Jethro as the director and Elly as Jethro’s “Yes Girl.” The commercial shoot doesn’t go as the Commodore thought it would. Jethro isn’t a good director, and Jed and Granny want to be honest. They think the commercial script is giving lies to the public. Granny ends up plugging her own homemade lye soap, saying not to waste money on store-bought soap. The Clampetts end up going home, not participating in the commercial.moreless

      • As Jethro, Elly Mae, Granny and Jed sit at the kitchen table, two boxes of Kellogg's Corn Flakes are shown between Jethro and Elly. In the wide shot, both boxes face front towards Elly. When the camera switches to a two-shot of Jethro and Elly, the box closest to Elly is faced backwards towards her.
