* {{Knighting}}: In "War of the Roses", Jethro gets knighted by Jane Hathaway masquerading as UsefulNotes/ElizabethI. The honor is given as Jethro had vanquished Colonel Dumbarton of the neighboring castle. At the same ceremony, Granny is assured by "The Queen" that the stain on the family honor will be rectified, and that everyone in England will know that the Clampett Clan ''did not'' run out on the "War of the Roses. Jed Clampett also takes the opportunity to return the deed to Canada - having purchased the country from the Queen's minister a few episodes before. Believe it or not, this all MakesSenseInContext.

A 1960s SitCom produced by Creator/{{Filmways}} about a family of Ozark-mountain folks who, when oil prospectors discover oil in their swamp, [[RagsToRiches become fantastically rich and move to a mansion in Beverly Hills]], where a greedy banker tries desperately to keep their money in his bank, which means keeping them happy in the foreign environment of Beverly Hills, while simultaneously keeping the city's residents from driving the Clampetts away. A great cast is aided by deceptively smart writing from creator Paul Henning, in a show which, contrary to popular perception, actually had great respect for the mountain people whom it portrayed. (Paul Henning was from Missouri and knew such simple yet honorable and proud people in his youth.) Incredibly successful, the show was eventually a victim of the so-called "Rural Purge" that eliminated shows from CBS' schedule that had a "country" or southern flavor. The series was canceled despite high ratings because they were the wrong ratings. It lasted from September 1962 to March 1971. A total of 274 episodes in nine seasons aired.
