Storyline

Meet the Clampett clan - There's Jed, a kind and sensible man turned millionaire, though not as imbecilic as the others, things happen around him without he knowing it; Granny - old and senile, paranoid, and always certain she knows how to deal with a situation; Elly May - Incredibly beautiful but awful naive! And Jethro Bodine - the stupid nephew of Jed. He's a strong as he is dumb; and Mr. Drysdale, a greedy banker who will do anything to keep the Clampett money in his bank, even if he has to hurt other people. Anyway, they've struck oil, gotten millions of dollars, move into a giant mansion, but still live like hillbillies: they still dress in tattered ragged clothes with rope belts, and Granny still makes soap the old fashion way, and Jethro tries to woo the women with his manly ways, but he's actually only acting like a real idiot, and doesn't even realize it.

One of the best sitcoms ever!
9 January 2001 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

When "The Beverly Hillbillies" premiered on the CBS network in the fall of 1962,critics panned it and wanted it off the air. But all of America loved it and this is why it has been a staple of American television for so many years and it continues on to this day. Even though it was basically the #1 show on the air for the nine seasons it ran has stood the test of time and its playing somewhere in repeats around the world. I still can get a good laugh every time its on,even though I have seen every episode about 20 to 30 times already. One of the best sitcoms ever!
