Episode Summary

Teenage Idol
Rock n' roll singing idol Johnny Poke visits the Clampetts while in town to play the Hollywood Bowl. Granny's not too happy about it; she's worried Jethro will pick up his bad habits. Granny loses her temper and thinks she turned Jethro into a puppy when she says he needs to be taught a lesson. The Clampetts don’t know Johnny is now a superstar, still thinking he is a bum. When they meet at the train station, where the idol is in disguise in old clothes to hide from teenage fans, Johnny tries to explain himself, but Jed and Jethro don’t believe him from the way he’s dressed; plus, what he’s saying doesn’t really make sense. They return to the house, and Granny sees Jethro in human form and is happy. Jed isn’t happy with Johnny, who is making a play at Elly, and Granny is trying to mend her ways. But after she hears him talk, she says he should be cursed. He sneaks out when a skunk comes in, and the skunk goes to where Johnny was. Granny thinks she’s turned another person into an animal.moreless
