The premise was that Jed, Granny, Jethro, and Ellie Mae moved to Beverly Hills from the hills of Tennessee, after Jed accidentally struck oil on his land and became instantly wealthy. The funny follies of this family of mountain hicks trying to live in ritzy Beverly Hills made for very popular tv.

In real life, though, it isn’t always funny when a band of misfits move into a city. Take Washington, D.C., for example. When a bunch of Chicago thugs move in, it doesn’t really make for a good sitcom, because it’s just so darned destructive. Oh, sure, there are lots of situations to joke about - a President who pops up out of nowhere to take the most powerful job in the nation, to rule over the Land of the Free and the Home o ...
There was a little girl named Ellie Mae at the grocery store today. I suppressed the urge to tell her that Edinburgh is a long way from Beverly Hills.
