  • Trivia

    • Why do the Clampetts expect to help the President and First Lady with the housework? They live near wealthy and powerful neighbors with servants, so why would they think that the leader of the country would have to do his own housework?

      Chattanooga/Choo Choo – Hello; Hi, Good-bye

    • Granny must have had a history lesson because she used to think that Confederate President Jefferson Davis was still the President, but now she knows that there is a different President, and she knows that Theodore Roosevelt has served since the Civil War.

    • The Clampetts never told Honest John that they were going to D.C, so how did he find out?

    • Goof: When Honest John first meets the Clampetts in Washington, the screen in the back has people walking back and forth. But in the shots of the whole group, nobody passes in back of them. The people just disappear after walking towards the group, never actually going down the street.
