Ghost of Clampett Castle
The Clampetts are enjoying their stay at Clampett Castle, but Drysdale wants to get back home. The staff at the castle is enjoying the Clampetts staying at the castle, hoping they'll stay and see the castle's ghost. When Drysdale hears the story, he tells the Clampetts about the ghost. Lady Clementine, making up a story about a murderer. The tale scares Granny, making her want to leave. Jethro plans to get rid of the ghost himself by holding a séance. When Drysdale learns of this, he decides to have a ghost appear to scare them. That night, Granny is very nervous, but prepared.

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions
