Buddy Ebsen was as down to earth in real life as he was on TV. My uncle was managing the office of his hotel and when business slowed he sat down to watch the Beverly Hillbillies as Buddy Ebsen came in to rent a room. My uncle said, "I'm watching you on TV right now." Buddy said, "We're not on for another hour." My uncle said, "You're on right now." Buddy said, "Oh, I forgot to set my watch ahead leaving Denver." He then said, "Can I watch it with you? So, my uncle watched Beverly Hillbillies with Buddy Ebsen.
