Episode Summary

EDIT
The Indians Are Coming
AIRED:
Granny is worried about an Indian attack on their land, after hearing about a problem on the land. However, all it is, is a boundary dispute, which can be easily solved. But Drysdale is worried about losing the Clampett land and Granny is worried about an attack, especially when she hears they are visiting Beverly Hills. However, the two Native Americans who visit, Chief Running Wolf and his son Little Fox, come to talk and visit with Jed and Jethro. But Granny is still expecting a full attack. Drysdale arranges for a fake attack to occur to satisfy Granny so she doesn’t go back home. The attack happens before Jed and Jethro arrive home, and they see the effects of it, thinking Granny did this to keep from admitting she was wrong. Granny, having lived through the “attack,” is visited by a man, John Wayne, and asks him where he was when she needed him.moreless
