The Beverly Hillbillies
Season 2 Episode 3: Grannys Garden
The Clampetts wake up before daybreak to plow and plant crops in the front yard. But the only one who is truly awake is Granny. The rest of the family falls asleep. After Granny complains, the family wakes up. As Granny goes to make breakfast, she sees the mule Elly got to pull the plow so Jed and Jethro wouldn’t have to. Granny is afraid she is having visions, until Jed confirms he sees it too. After breakfast, they start to plow, but Drysdale hears this from his house and runs over to stop them. But it doesn’t matter because the plowing mule refuses to work, until Elly steps in. And Drysdale says they can’t plow because there is a zoning ordinance. Jane visits, also telling the clan they can’t do any plowing. Since the mule decides to not work again, Jed tells Drysdale and Jane why Granny wants to plow the front yard. Jane comes up with an idea. She takes the Clampetts on a field trip to show Granny modern farmers a grocery store to show Granny she can buy her vegetables. After they return, Granny still wants to plow the front yard because her Confederate money was turned down and she couldn’t buy anything.
Jed Clampett and kin, a poor Ozark Hillbilly family, were barely surviving until one lucky day. Jed while hunting for food in his swamp missed his target and struck the ground with his shot. Up through the ground came a bubblin’ crude, Oil that is, Black Gold, Texas Tea. After selling his swamp to… More the OK Oil Company for $25 Million, Cousin Pearl convinces Jed he should move his family to Beverly Hills.
Uncle Jed, Elly May, Granny, and Jethro bring their outrageous backwoods antics to Southern Californny in this hilarious CBS comedy series from 1962-71. As the oil-rich Clampetts struggle to make sense of modern city living, Milburn Drysdale lives in constant fear of these simple mountain folk withdrawing their $25 million from his Beverly Hills bank.
