The Beverly Hillbillies S01E23 Jed Buys the Freeway - Watch Comedy Series Online

Season 1 Episode 23

The Clampetts are visited by a stranger, H.H.H. Jones. But this man is a confidence man, looking to get rich by selling Jed different monuments in the Los Angeles area. He starts out by trying to sell the Hollywood Bowl. Pearl takes interest in this so she'd have the ability to perform in front of a crowd. The family decides to go look at the Hollywood Bowl. Pearl is very impressed, but Jed doesn't take much interest because there isn't much hunting. So "Honest Hank" takes the Clampetts to another piece of his property, Griffith Park. Meanwhile, Drysdale and Jane know about this confidence man, and are trying to get the Clampetts out of his clutches. While at Griffith Park, the Clampetts are enjoying looking around and the animals at the zoo. On their way home, while on the freeway, the Clampetts are getting fed up with the other motorists' rudeness. When they return to the mansion, Granny takes Elly and Jethro to the freeway to teach the drivers a lesson. Drysdale and Jane finally reach Jed, telling him that Jones is a fake. But Jed says he figured that out because he can't hold his moonshine well.

The Beverly Hillbillies is an American situation comedy originally broadcast for nine seasons on CBS from 1962 to 1971, starring Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr.

The series is about a poor backwoods family transplanted to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. A Filmways production created by writer Paul Henning, it is the first in a genre of "fish out of water" themed television shows, and was followed by other Henning-inspired country-cousin series on CBS. In 1963, Henning introduced Petticoat Junction, and in 1965 he reversed the rags to riches model for Green Acres. The show paved the way for later culture-conflict programs such as McCloud, The Nanny, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Doc. Panned by many entertainment critics of its time, it quickly became a huge ratings success for most of its nine-year run on CBS.

The Beverly Hillbillies ranked among the top twenty most watched programs on television for eight of its nine seasons, twice ranking as the number one series of the year, with a number of episodes that remain among the most watched television episodes of all time.

The ongoing popularity of the series spawned a 1993 film remake by 20th Century Fox.

In 1997, the episode "Hedda Hopper's Hollywood" was ranked #62 on TV Guide's 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time.
