    The Beverly Hillbilly episodes with Louis Nye are Hillbilly- Hilarious as Louis portrays a 37 year old going on 11. With his cool clothes and his worry about getting into trouble with mom and dad Drysdale you can't help but laugh the whole show. He almost acts sort of gay but you know that he isn't because of his infatuation with Elly May and it goes on from there. This comedy masterpiece with Louis will entertain all Beverly Hillbilly fans from start to finish and make you wish for more of these wonderfully funny Louis Nye slash Beverly Hillbilly episodes.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In this episode, we learn that Sonny Drysdale's real name is Adonis, which means "an extremely handsome young man" and was also a character in Greek mythology.

    • Mr. Drysdale asks Sonny what his real name is, saying he has been calling him that since he married his mother. Drysdale said in another episode that they got married at 25, and had been married for 20 years, meaning they are in their 40's, and Sonny is 37. If that is the case, Mrs. Drysdale would have to had Sonny as a child.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • (Mrs. Drysdale takes Sonny to Drysdale's office to straighten things out between them)
      Sonny: I'll never forgive him. Never. That insulting letter he wrote, and that awful four letter word he used.
      Mrs. Drysdale: No!
      Sonny: Yes! W-O-R-K.
