An elderly hillbilly and his friend are rescued from a life of poverty by a long-lost family member who married into wealth in Beverly Hills but is now doing social battle with her late husband's snobby family.
I remember the Cavanaughs particularly Barnard Hughes and Christine Ebersole playing father and daughter. I apologize but my memory could be wrong. Anyway, they did a very good job on the show. The sitcom could have been a hit but CBS had too many other sitcoms on the air at the time. Unfortunately, I don't remember it being about stereotypes about being Irish Catholic. I'm Polish Catholic so I related to the family relationships. I was a kid when this show aired on television. It was one of the few shows that ever gave us Catholic characters at that time. Maybe they wanted Barnard Hughes to be the Catholic Archie Bunker, the show didn't last long because there were too many shows and not enough airtime. It may have succeeded in syndication if given that opportunity. It was just another good show that never really evolved on it's own.
