Funny Kid Episode
17 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't usually like children coming on shows like "The Beverly Hillbillies." Too often, the kids are cloying, or touching, etc. Just like Opie (Ron Howard) was good on "The Andy Griffith Show" but I tuned out every time they had an "Opie" episode because it was going to be less funny.

"The Little Monster" is Milburn Drysdale's nephew and namesake. And the kid is hilarious. He comes on acting as obnoxious as one would expect. But when he finds out Jed Clampett is a millionaire, the kid starts kissing his hand and sitting in his lap, and getting himself invited to the mansion.

Once installed in the Clampett mansion, the kid quickly sizes up Jethro's intelligence and he starts buying some of the "bric-a-brac" they have around the house -- such as a Ming vase, which Jethro is willing to let him have for fifty cents (the kid's first offer was a dollar, but Jethro didn't want to cheat him).

The end of the episode may conflict with modern parenting sensibilities, but I had no problem with it. Perhaps because I was brought up seeing too much violence on television -- Sgt. O'Roarke hitting Agarn with his hat, the skipper hitting Gilligan with his hat, Granny hitting Jethro with her reticule . . . But if any sort of corporal punishment sends you running to your shrink, shrink away from this episode.
