Jed Clampett, a poor hillbilly along with Duke, his dog unearth an oil well while hunting for food. And instantly the property of the Clampetts is purchased by the OK oil firm for an amount of 25 million dollars.
Pearl, the cousin of Jed convinces him to move with his family to Beverly Hills in California. Hence Jed drives to the West coast in his truck along with Jethro, his nephew, “Granny” his mother-in-law and Elly May his daughter. The series is full of trivial but funny situations.
The family moves next door to Milburn Drysdale, a greedy banker who takes the family into his wings in the hope of getting the millions of the Clampetts into his bank. The main plot in the initial episodes were about how the family adjusts to the fast moving life in the city and how the wisdom of Jed Clampett helps in winning every situation. While the Hillbillies live in a mansion which has its own plumbing indoor along with a pond they still don’t forget their roots from the hills. The efforts of Drysdale in ensuring that the Clampetts stay happier in the city in order to ensure that their money stays put in his bank is the center plot in many of the shows. Some of the storylines include the enrolment of Jethro in an elementary school, medical practice that Granny opens, movie studio which Jed buys and a beau for Elly May.
Always rich in the absurd, the series was chock full of lowbrow but hilarious situations. As sitcom humor would have it, Jed and his brood move next door to the greedy banker, Milburn Drysdale, who in an effort to make his financial institution the home of the Clampett millions, takes the fresh-off-the-farm family under his wing. Most of the early shows revolve around the impossible adjustments the poor mountain folk must make to city life, and Jed Clampett’s backwoods brand of wisdom always wins out in the end. Despite their brand-new mansion with its cement pond and indoor plumbing, the Hillbillies stay true to their rustic roots. Many episodes center around Drysdale’s attempts to keep the Clampetts in good spirits in their big-city setting (thus keeping their money in his bank). Enrolling Jethro in elementary school, buying Jed a movie studio, letting Granny open a medical practice and finding Elly May a beau are just a few of the silly but entertaining storylines.
