Not the Beverly Hillbillies but the Hatfields and the McCoys
19 January 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Broadcast no. 39 (Oct 23 1967), "Hillbilly Honeymoon" finds the group in the middle of a feud between the Chubber and Weskit clans of Swineville, with Davy again involved with a girl he couldn't keep clear of. Veteran character actor Dub Taylor was then enjoying his best year in Hollywood, playing Michael J. Pollard's father in "Bonnie and Clyde," while pretty teen Melody Patterson ("Blood and Lace") had just finished a two-year stint on F TROOP. Lou Antonio earned far more plaudits as a director than as an actor (remembered for STAR TREK's "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield"), and Billie Hayes kept busy doing voice-over work after several shows for Sid and Marty Croft (H. R. PUFNSTUF, LIDSVILLE). The lone song featured is the fourth and final appearance of Nesmith's "Papa Gene's Blues" (from THE MONKEES debut LP), the only instance where the second season used a track from the first. 44th in production, "Hillbilly Honeymoon" marked the group's return to Hollywood following a busy summer of recording and touring, filmed Sept 13-15, also the debut of Micky's naturally curly hairstyle. Next in production- "A Coffin Too Frequent."
