The Beverly Hillbillies was the most popular sitcom in television history, and quite possibly the most successful network series ever, it ran for over 200 episodes, clocking in as the top-rated show of its premier season, and remaining in the top ten throughout its nine-year tenure. Jed Clampett (Buddy Ebsen) is an Ozarks mountaineer who, through epic fortuity and sheer ineptitude, falls into unfathomable wealth with the discovery of oil beneath his worthless Arcadian scrub oak. A roving petrochemical concern buys him out for $25 million, whereupon town sophisticate Cousin Pearl convinces him fabled Beverly Hills is the place to be. So they load up the truck and move to Beverly Hills replete with a rocking chair up top to house Granny (Irene Ryan), the family's reluctant matriarch.
