The Clampetts Versus Automation
AIRED:
The Clampetts are tired of their neighbors who mean mouth them and don’t appreciate them. They decide to go back to the hills. And at the bank, a computer is replacing Leroy Lester, an accountant. But this accountant believes he can still keep his job. Instead, Drysdale tells him he can balance his wife’s checkbook. On his way to do so, his car stops in the Drysdales’ driveway, and Jethro brings him to the mansion. The Clampetts take him in. But Drysdale believes he ran away with a fortune. He tries to find him to turn him in, though his theory is proven false. He learns the truth about Lester, and that the computer blew up. Now Drysdale wants this accountant back. Things finally improve for the once unappreciated Leroy. He stays with the Clampetts, his new friends, in the end. Leroy finally gets a much-deserved vacation. And Drysdale gets himself a substitute accountant for Leroy’s time off – Jethro.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Janet and Jane talk about Mr. Lester's car. Jane says that he bought the car in 1919, and has been making payments for 46 years, with three years left. And the car had an initial cost of $550. So, Mr. Lester has been paying off the car for a total of 49 years. To make that amount, he was and would continue to pay about $11.23 per year. Those really are easy payments.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • (Jethro says that Elly can help him fix Mr. Lester's car)
        Jethro: She can lift the car while I crawl under.

    • NOTES (1)

      • With this episode, Milburn Drysdale's character changes from the more honorable character he started out as into the more dishonest and disreputable caricature he would become for the rest of the series.
