Episode Summary

EDIT
Problem Bear
AIRED:
Drysdale has come down with the flu after spending so many nights outside while on the way to Hooterville. Granny wants to help him with her Possum Ridge Penicillin, also known as White Lightening. She leaves Drysdale a jug of it, but he puts it to the side and takes a sleeping pill. However, Elly’s bear Fairchild has taken up drinking Granny’s moonshine and climbs into his room as Drysdale is sleeping and drinks the entire jug. When Granny checks on Drysdale, she sees the jug empty and believes he drank it all. She leaves another jug, which Fairchild gets hold of, and when the Clampetts return, they believe he drank another full jug. Meanwhile, Mrs. Drysdale is upset that her husband only has a common flu, but after he tells her he saw a hairy creature float out, a drunken Fairchild, and a little nurse, Bessie, she cheers up. She shows her friend, but Mrs. Van Ransonhoff sees the animals and wants to learn more, asking Granny what she knows. And Granny reveals everything, embarrassing Mrs. Drysdale.moreless
