Episode Summary

EDIT
The Flying Saucer
AIRED:
The Clampetts see part of the Drysale’s new advertising gimmick – Martians and a flying saucer. Drysdale plans to have them fly over the Rose Bowl, throwing out Drysdale Dollars. Jethro thinks they have come for him, since he sees himself as the “giant brain of the world.” The Clampetts take the Martians in for food, though Granny is not happy about their manners. She ends up blowing up their space ship, a giant balloon in the Drysdales’ back yard.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Although the logo is obscured by a red bar, the familliar green stylized rooster and logotype can be seen on the box of Kellogg's Corn Flakes that Jethro is eating from in the first scene. Kellogg's was the main sponser of The Beverly Hillbillies, and the characters (especially "six-foot stomach" Jethro) were often seen eating the cereal, both in commercials and in the storyline.

        Elly: She's madder than a wet hornet.
        Jethro: How come?

      • (Granny complains about the Martians)
        Jethro: If you don't stop mean-mouthin' them Martians, they's gonna turn us all into robots.
        Elly: What's a robot?
        Jethro: That's when they take these little electronic things and plants em under yer hide. And then ya gotta do their biddin'.

        (Elly's pigeon starts poking it's beak on Jethro's head)
        Jethro: Oh, yer really comin' through to me now! That message is pouring right into my brain! What are ya trying to tell me?
        Elly: You're a nut!
