The Beverly Hillbillies

The Beverly Hillbillies was a sitcom that ran from 1962-1971. The series was about a hillbilly family transplanted to Beverly Hills, California after finding oil on their land.

The Hillbillies themselves were the widowed patriarch Jed "J.D." Clampett; his ornery mother-in-law, Daisy May "Granny" Moses; his curvaceous, tom-boy daughter Elly May Clampett; and Jethro, the brawny, half-witted son of his cousin Pearl Bodine. Pearl appeared in several episodes during the first season, as did Jethro's twin sister Jethrine.

Supporting characters included Milburn Drysdale, Jed's greedy,unscrupulous banker and his ostentacious wife Margaret Drysdale; and "Miss" Jane Hathaway, Drysdale's scholarly, "plain-Jane" secretary, who pined for the clueless Jethro.
