Episode Summary

EDIT
The Possum Day Parade
AIRED:
Granny is preparing for her Possum Queen campaign, and also wondering why Mrs. Drysdale hasn’t fought back yet. When Jed asks Drysdale about this, he starts her campaign with a false radio interview and continues to try to get a Possum festival to go on. Granny continues with her campaign, and Mrs. Drysdale realizes that she has been campaigning without even knowing. Drysdale returns on Possum Day after being turned down by every city and town he went to, even Death Valley. He goes up to the Clampett mansion to tell them, but Granny reveals she is withdrawing from the race to let Mrs. Drysdale win the title. When he learns Granny’s truth, he doesn’t tell them that he couldn’t organize it and adds more lies. When he leaves, Granny plans for next year and celebrates this Possum Day with the help of her jug.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (Jed is looking at the campaign signs Jethro and Elly made for Granny's Possum Queen Campaign)
        Jed: "Granny will cut taxes." Granny will cut taxes?!
        Jethro: Yes sir. That's a real popular campaign promise. Everybody from mayor to president makes that one.
        Jed: Yeah, but Granny ain't . . . Well, I reckon she can keep it 'bout as good as the others have.

      • (Granny tells Jethro she can mean-mouth Mrs. Drysdale in her campaign)
        Granny: Remember what Williams Jennings Bryan said, "Fight hard, but fight clean."
        Jethro: But you ain't fightin' clean Granny.
        Granny: Course I ain't! Williams Jennings Bryan was a loser!

      • (Granny is trashing Mrs. Drysdale during her campaign rally for Possum Queen)
        Granny: She has the brain of a chicken, the disposition of a alligator, and the figure of an over-stuffed silo!

      • (Granny is trashing Mrs. Drysdale before attending her campaign rally)
        Granny: Anybody that would vote for her would suck eggs!

      • Jed, Elly May and Jethro: (singing Granny's campaign song, to the tune of 'Camptown Races')
        Here's your choice for possum queen!
        Granny! Granny!
        She don't ride no limousine.
        Granny all the way!

    • NOTES (3)

      • For the whole time she played Janet Trego, Sharon Tate wore a black wig, and even dated Max Baer at one point.

      • From this episode on, the Clampetts are only seen pulling out of a driveway instead of driving from the mansion. After the address of the Clampett Mansion became public knowledge, the owners of the real-life Kirkeby Estate forbid any further location shooting.

      • This is the last episode Sharon Tate appeared in. She was killed by the Manson family a few years later.
