Elly May Clampett
Daisy Moses "Granny"
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 is telling Jethro why Granny wasn't happy about the way the Martians acted)
Elly: She's madder than a wet hornet.
Jethro: How come?
Elly: Well, them little green fellas ate up everything there was and left without so much as a "thank you." Why, kept yellin' fer more "grazie" and "ciao" and somethin' called "Arrivederci."
(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'.
Jed: The dickens you say?
Jethro: Yeah. From then on, ya just walk around with a stupid look on yer face.
Granny: Where did they plant yours?
(Granny and Jed are carrying a big picnic basket of food Jethro was planning to take with him)
Granny: There must be a ton of vittles in here.
Jed: Yeah, that'd last the boy purt near half a day.
(Jethro is telepathically communicating with the aliens, and Elly finds him. Her pigeon flies onto his head)
Jethro: Space people? I ain't gettin' no message back from you. Let me know if I'm comin' through.
(Elly's pigeon starts walking on Jethro's head)
Jethro: I feel somethin'! You comin' through!
(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!
Jethro: No I ain't space people. I'm one of the biggest brains here on Earth.
(Granny, who just saw the "Martians" asks Jed if they can talk because they haven't in a while)
Granny: Jed, have you noticed that folks is gettin' shorter and greener?
Jed: Shorter and greener?
Jed: No, can't say that I've noticed that. Why'd ya ask?
Granny: Oh, it's no reason. Just that if ya had, it sure would give us somethin' ta talk about.
Jed: True. True.
(Granny is on stilts trying to see what's over at Mrs. Drysdale's house)
Jed: Granny, what in the Sam Hill are you doing?
Granny: Oh, just out fer a little walk.
Jed: On stilts?
Granny: Well, I might just come on a tree full of ripe fruit.
Jed: Alright, have yourself a good look.
(Granny starts walking away)
Jed: But watch out for Jethro! He's gonna come barrelling around the side of the house any minute on the truck. Jethro, look out fer your Granny!!! Granny, watch out!!!
(Granny's stilts are lowered as she returns to the house)
Granny: What with slippery roots and crazy drivers, a body ain't safe around this house.
(Jed enters the kitchen where Jethro is eating breakfast)
Jed: Oh, glad ya here boy. I wanna tell you bout the family New Year's resolution. It's Granny's idea, and it's a dandy. Commencin' right now, we are gonna be friendly to Mrs. Drysdale, no matter what she does to provoke us, or how poor she treats us, we are gonna be sweet as sugar and that goes fer every single one of us. What do ya think boy? Reckon you can keep that resolution?
(Jethro eats breakfast, crunching corn flakes)
Jethro: Oh hi Uncle Jed. You say sumthin?
Jed: Yeah I did, I was tellin' ya about this New Year's resolution.
Granny: (coming from outside) Dag blamed Mrs. Drysdale! I'll nail her hide to a tree!
Jethro: What is the resolution?
Jed: Never mind. I get the feeling it's done been busted.
Granny: Jed, I've seen some spiteful neighbors in my time but that spiteful woman is the most spitefullest.
Jed: Now Granny.
Granny: Why just to to spite us, she built a spite fence. How's that for spitefullness?!
Jed: What do ya mean?
Granny: The hedge wasn't enough. She put up a canvas behind it. I can't see over it, and I can't see under it.
Jed: Well, what is it that you wanna see?
Granny: Whatever it is that she don't want me to see, that's what!
(Granny is getting somewhat mean with the Martians)
Jethro: Be careful. They'll vaporize ya.
Granny: I'd like to see em try.
