After Granny had interrupted the wrestling match and threw the Boston Strong Girl out of the ring in the previous episode, a manager (Alan "Fred Flintstone" Reed) wants Granny to return to the ring for another match. Granny is reluctant to return, so the manager shows up at the mansion with Rebecca of Donnybrook Farm (singer Gayle Caldwell) and her alleged "sick momma and crippled daddy" to try and convince the Clampetts to fight on their behalf. Jed apologizes but explains it isn't their fight, but when the Boston Strong Girl's father (Mike Mazurki) shows up and throws Granny through the door it becomes personal.
A very funny episode loaded with physical comedy that also showcases the many moods of Granny extremely well. A fan favorite in the same league as The Giant Jackrabbit, The Indians are Coming!, or The Gorilla.
The Clampetts Discover Pro Wrestlng
The Rass'lin Clampetts is one of the better episodes of the series. After Granny and Mrs. Drysdale have an altercation, Jed tries explaining to Granny folks in the city don't settle their differences through violence, to which Jethro says "Yes they do" and tells about the women wrestlers on TV. The family settles in the parlor that night to watch Rebecca of Donnybrook Farm (a sweet little farm girl) fight The Boston Strong Girl. The Boston Strong Girl puts a heavy beating on Rebecca, and Granny declares she can't bear to watch, making Jethro leave with her. Later, as Jed and Elly are still watching the program, they witness Granny jump into the ring and teach the Boston Strong Girl why not to beat up on a Tennessee girl.
