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.

* MsFanservice: Elly May. As a book on TV series once put it: "Fans were willing to put up with the insipid plots to get a look at her in jeans that appeared to be painted on."
** The movie did likewise with her and, to greater extent but in in fewer clips, Laura Jackson and a young brunette relative the Clampetts left behind.
