Episode Summary

EDIT
Jed in Politics
AIRED:
Granny is feuding with the Beverly Hills Smog Commission because they tell her she has to stop making her lye soap. Commissioner Tinsley visits the mansion, ordering Granny to quit her soap making, and when she sees him, she threatens him with her shotgun. Jed and Granny visit Drysdale’s office for some help, where Jane tells them they should try to defeat Tinsley on Election Day, and Jed mistakes this as being told to run. Drysdale and the clan are in favor of it. So Jed participates in the election, and Tinsley tries to get Jed to stop. Jethro tries to contribute to Jed’s campaign by inventing an anti-smog device, which Tinsley is very interested in. Tinsley says that if Jed gives him his device, Granny can continue to make soap. But Jethro's invention fails, making Tinsley lose his hope of anti-smog.moreless
