TV Shows - Beverly Hillbillies

The Clampetts were simple folk: living off the land, they wanted nothing and asked for nothing. When Jed Clampett accidentally discovered oil on his property, he and his family were instant millionaires. Deciding to move to Beverly Hills to take advantage of their new-found wealth, the Clampetts find that their down-to-earth lifestyle clashes with the new suburb and its shielded, upper-class inhabitants

1 With Donna Douglas in her prime for the entire run of the series, it never boned the fish. I could watch that show 24 hours a day just to get a glimpse of the beautiful Elly May. Donna Douglas was much more beautiful in her prime than Marilyn Monroe ever was. -- Submitted By: (bipinbarr) on August 19, 2014, 9:09 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Pelirojo, it wasn't Shorty who cheated them. It was Honest John played by Phil Silvers. -- Submitted By: () on May 21, 2013, 10:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Fletch, it went color in its 4th season so they had only been there 3 years at that point. Do your research, please. -- Submitted By: (UncleJed) on May 21, 2013, 10:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Joe Bag of Donuts, And did you ever consider that during that time, Elvis WAS a bona fide Beverly Hillbilly even if he spent the bulk of his time in Memphis? LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 14, 2012, 3:46 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 A classic "fish out of water" sitcom. Great acting, great scripts, what more can you say? It's really everyone's fantasy to come upon a huge sum of money and move into a mansion. The show ran a little thin on ideas the last couple of seasons but it's still better than nearly every show in prime time today. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 10, 2012, 1:10 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 If it boned on anything I'm afraid I have to say the interplay with PETTICOAT JUNCTION during the remaining third of its run. In all fairness, it was also a way to console the cast of its sister show after the death of Bea Benadaret (who played Kate Bradley on JUNCTION and Pearl Bodine on HILLBILLIES). Despite any luster of the interplay, Bea's death might have awaken the sponsors to the demographic disadvantages of the rural shows. -- Submitted By: () on February 22, 2012, 9:50 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 The black and white episodes were superior to the color episodes. The movie had it's moments. I wonder what it would be like in HD. hmm? Lets get all of their flaws shall we. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on November 29, 2011, 9:59 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 This is yet another show that I watched frequently but can't really see any decline in quality because of the sameness in each episode. I enjoyed it for what it was - just dumb fun. I don't really see any change in it as it went along and couldn't take it seriously enough to look for flaws. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on February 24, 2011, 7:46 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I must say that I loved the B&w episodes. with color came changes in the characters' character. The Clampets had been in Beverly Hills for at least five years now, and they only seemed to get dumber. The color episodes boned this fun show. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 10, 2010, 1:54 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 This a cute one i watch it all the time when I was a little girl. I like how they call the pool the cement pond that still crack me up. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on December 14, 2009, 9:32 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
11 I agree with the comments about Irene Ryan. Granny Moses was the soul of the hillbilly comedic action. Granny was the base on which all the other comedy was predecaded. -- Submitted By: (smaxie) on December 8, 2009, 4:59 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 After doing some reading, I kind of felt sorry for Irene Ryan, who was nominated for several Emmy Awards during the show's heyday, but always lost to Mary Tyler Moore (then playing Laura Petrie in "The Dick Van Dyke Show"). I've always thought Granny Clampet was the best thing about the show (Jed was too laid back and all the other characters were either way over-the-top or rock stupid). Ryan's performances were always funny and she made me laugh many times. And while she was about 60 when the series began, it still took lost of makeup for her to appear as old as Granny Moses. Just a few thoughts on the subject. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 18, 2009, 4:51 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I say it never boned, but it did come within sight of the fish when the Clampetts started having multi-episode trips to New York and England. Fortunately, those episodes were funny, as the show's fish-out-of-water humour actually got a little fresher in these unfamiliar places. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 9:38 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
14 I think it went on several years too long! Not only was it straining all belief that the Clampetts could still be that naive about city slicker ways having lived there nine whole years, but when they had Shorty cheat THEM and them still coming back for more, it wasn't funny anymore. Plus, it had long since become a cartoon instead of the original idea of naive but smart country folks keeping their ways while spoofing modern society! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 24, 2009, 11:40 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
15 I loved the show but it did start to get a little old when they went back to Silver Dollar City and Shorty Kellems came back to Beverly Hills with them. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 17, 2009, 4:14 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
