Popular T.V. show in 1936The Beverly Hillbillies The series is about a poor backwoods family transplanted to Beverly Hills, California, after striking oil on their land. The main characters are Jed, Granny, Elly May, Jethro, Duke, The Drysdales, and Jane.The show was a comedy about how the family refused to conform to the Beverly Hills way.I felt that the show is quite funny and all the actors are very fit for their part.If I was around in that time period I would have found the show very enjoyable.
