classic "Hillbillies" memoriesJan. 2 2006
- Published on Amazon.com
Alpha has re-released these classic episodes of THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES, which are amongst the many eps from Season One to somehow fall through the cracks into public domain. Gone is the familiar theme song (which remains under strict copyright) but the same laughs are to be enjoyed with these superior B&W shows.
"Clampetts Strike Oil" - In the series premiere, the Clampetts strike it rich when oil is discovered in their swamp.
"Getting Settled"' - The Clampetts arrive in their mansion only to find that it doesn't have any of the comforts of home.
"Jed Buys Stock" - To help secure the family's fortune, Mr. Drysdale suggests that Jed purchase some 'stock.' Naturally Jed thinks he means livestock.
"Clampetts Entertain" - Mr. Drysdale is dismayed to learn that the chairman of his bank wants to have dinner with the Clampetts. Jim Backus guest stars.
"The Clampetts Get Psychoanalyzed" - Jethro needs a Certificate of Health to return to school and things get complicated when he goes to see a psychiatrist by mistake.
"Jethro's Friend" - Jethro's school pal visits the mansion, but the delicate boy's chauffer becomes worried about the Clampett's lifestyle.
"The Servants" - Drysdale attempts to 'improve' the Clampetts by lending them his butler and maid.
"Christmas at the Clampetts" - The Clampetts receive many incredible Christmas gifts - many beyond their simple hillbilly understanding.
"Clampetts Get Culture" - Feeling out of place in Beverly Hills, The Clampetts decide to return to the Ozarks. Drysdale desperately tries to change their minds.
"The Garden Party" - The Clampetts are coming to Mrs. Drysdale's garden party - much to her dismay.
