Trivia

In the promos for this series, the McCoys' farm is described as "20 miles northwest of the Los Angeles City Hall". This would be very close to where Walter Brennan was buried, at the Mission San Fernando Cemetery. See more »

An underrated classic and better than The Beverly Hillbillies
4 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I had seen episodes of The Real McCoys as a very small child during the original airings in the early 1960's. Many years had passed before I had the chance to see it again. Except for the ill-advised sixth and final season, without the lovely and talented Kathy Nolan as Kate, it is a heart-warming and wonderful family show that all too sadly is of the kind that is no longer made anymore. It is just great that the entire series is being released on DVD. I will certainly add the first five seasons to my collection. As for the sixth season, the show had lost it's heart with the departure of Kathy Nolan. Not until Don Knotts left The Andy Griffith Show did such a loss cripple a show again. Yes, The Real McCoys was basically a comedy show, but it often had touches of realism and drama you never saw on the later classic The Beverly Hillbillies. It had solid acting throughout, even down to the supporting cast. It also had a heart.
