When a surveyor finds a swamp full of oil on Jed Clampett s (Buddy Ebsen) land, the backwoods family goes from rags to riches. In The Beverly Hillbillies Season 1, Jed moves in his entire family, including mother-in-law Granny Emmy nominee Irene Ryan), daughter Elly May (Donna Douglas) and cousin Jethro (Max Baer, Jr.) to California. In the first 36 episodes, Beverly Hills society has no idea who just joined their ranks. Living next door to money-hungry banker Milburn Drysdale (Raymond Bailey) and his pretentious wife Margaret (Harriet E. MacGibbon), the Clampetts get into their fair share of hilarious misadventures and misunderstanding. Even with Drysdale s compassionate secretary Miss Jane Hathaway (Emmy nominee Nancy Kulp) on their side, the family still manages to run into trouble as they navigate their lavish new lifestyle. With their simple ways, honourable intentions and down-home wisdom, The Beverly Hillbillies instantly became a one-in-a-million comedy classic.
