Meet the Clampett clan - There's Jed; the kind and intelligent patriarch(although lacking formal education) turned into an overnight millionaire through a stroke of luck. While he appears to be in a state of retirement, he is still frequently kept busy by trying to keep his family out of trouble and make peace with his neighbors. Then there is Granny; the Matriarch of the clan who is mature, highly opinionated, paranoid of new-fangled ways and things. She considers herself to be highly educated (a self proclaimed Doctor of Hillbilly Medicine) and has difficulty understanding why anyone doubts her wisdom. Then there is Elly May; Beautiful, but awkwardly naive. Apparently in her late teens or early twenties, she is considered an 'Old Maid' by the standards of her culture back in the mountains of her childhood. Last but not least, there is Jethro Bodine. Somewhat slow witted nephew of Jed. He is constantly attempting to find a girlfriend by impressing them with his education (elementary ... Written by Lord Farqua

John Wayne made a cameo appearance on The Beverly Hillbillies: The Indians Are Coming (1967), Wednesday, February 1st, 1967, to be exact. When asked how he wanted to be paid, he is best remembered answering back with: "Give me a fifth of bourbon - that'll square it." See more »


In a majority of season one and season two episodes, location/establisher footage showed Jane Hathaway's first car, a 1962 Plymouth convertible, but in some cases the scene would immediate cut to a close up of her arriving in a 1963 or 1964 Dodge. See more »

The Mansion
1 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a long time fan of The Beverly Hillbillies. I recently did some research on the internet to find out more about the mansion used in the series. "The Kirkeby Mansion" built in 1938 is actually in Bel Air. the 1938 French neoclassical-style mansion at 750 Bel Air Road, built by Lynn Atkinson (and later sold to hotelier Arnold Kirkeby after Atkinson's wife refused to move into a house she thought too ostentatious.) Kirkeby agreed with the production company to let them use his estate on the condition that the actual address was not given out to the general public. The address (750 Bel Air Rd.)leaked out and before long tourists became a problem. I've found a satellite view of the property recently and found out that the front gate was completely taken out and the house can no longer be seen from the street. The new entrance is down the road. Too bad really because the estate with it's still meticulously manicured spectacular seventeenth century style formal french garden is among the most beautiful in California.
