Well let me tell you a story about a man named Jed, a poor mountaineer who barely kept his family fed, then one day he was shooting at some food, when up from the ground came a bubblin´ crude. Oil that is, black gold...Texas tea.”” Classic US sitcom following the adventures of Jed Clampett and his family who, after discovering oil at the back of their Ozark ranch, pack up their things and move to Beverly Hills, much to the consternation of the local populace. The Clampett family consisted of Jed (Buddy Ebsen), Granny Clampett (Irene Ryan), dim witted cousin Jethro (Max Baer Jnr), and kindly, animal loving Elly May (Donna Douglas). Rather than poking fun at the Hillbillies, the series underlying theme was nothing less than an out and out attack on materialism and became the fastest ratings hit in US TV history, progressing to the top of the chart within four months and remaining there for two years. Even viewed today with the more sophisticated (jaded) eyes of a modern viewer, The Beverly Hillbillies delights as an excellent example of the US sitcom at its very best. The Clampetts may not have had poise and polish. But they had something infinitely more valuable...genuine class. This DVD disc contains 3 classic episodes, from a total of 216 which were filmed between 1962 and 1971.: Back to Californy also featuring Jed´s Dilema; Jed Saves Drysdale´s Marriage
