Rich folks like Clampetts' party better than Mrs. Drysdale's
27 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with Mrs. Drysdale upset that smoke from the fire Granny is using to make soap is blowing right into her yard and affecting her hibiscus plant. She is also planning a "Gahden Pahty" (as she says it) for that afternoon.

She goes next door and, in her mind, politely asks the Clampetts to stay out of sight. But she uses words they don't understand, such as inconspicuous, so they think she is inviting them to the party.

One unique scene, I believe unique for the entire series, sees Mrs. Drysdale and her butler Ravenswood, dressed like the Clampetts visiting Milburn at the bank. Margaret throws a toy skunk at Milburn, telling him she was handed a real one. They dressed that way to show Milburn how the Clampetts will ruin her party. He sends Miss Hathaway to solve the problem, as usual.

Jane explains that the party isn't to put in a garden, and gets them all dressed up. Margaret still sends them back to their place--to handle the overflow crowd. Eventually, all of her 300 party guests find their way to the Clampetts, some for the improved punch (with Granny's White Lightning), some to ogle Elly or Jethro.

If you wanted to argue that the show had a serious point, it would be that the Clampetts knew how to throw a better party than Mrs. Drysdale, as judged by the high society folks she was trying to please.

Like almost all the early episodes, this was a rather funny show.
