Episode Summary

Granny Goes to Hooterville
Right after the Clampett's return from London, Granny gets a letter saying to go to Hooterville. The problem is that nobody knows where it is. Granny tries to find out, but doesn’t have much luck. Jethro, who won’t get any food from Granny since she is focusing on Hooterville, is desperate for food and accidentally eats Elly's grits and rocks for her critters. Granny has to “doctor” him back to health. While entering the kitchen, she mistakenly sees Jed holding Miss Jane, after she hurt her back, and thinks they are getting married. She tells Drysdale, when he comes over, and he has Jane get back to the office where she is rewarded for her hard work. In the end, Granny leaves to go to Hooterville, and the whole romance of Jane and Jed is cleared up.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • In one of the last episodes, Jethro would again mistake grits as being something else.

      • Granny would cross over to the Petticoat Junction episode,"Granny, The Baby Expert" where she goes to Hooterville to tend to Betty Jo and Steve's baby.

      • It is very ironic that the Clampetts did not know where Hooterville was when Cousin Pearl called and said she broke her foot dancing, then saying that Betty Jo and Steve had a baby. So undoubtedly Cousin Pearl knew where Hooterville was or she wouldn't have known about Betty Jo and Steve's baby.
