** But how does that jibe with Miss Hathaway's obvious crush on Jethro? Unless...she's actually got a crush on Jethrine.
** Not impossible Miss Hathaway was at least a little bi-sided. She may have suspected all along he'd never return her interest, and just liked the thrill of the chase.
*** It could just be a matter of HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday. Judging by the time period, she would have had to do that to keep her job most likely.
* DeaderThanDisco: Almost no one would admit to liking this series, even when it was No. 1 in the ratings back in the 1960s.
** Well, maybe it ''should'' be, but the show remains a staple of syndicated television to this day, and still brings in decent ratings.



* FridgeLogic: Attempting to make the Clampetts look uninformed sometimes causes continuity errors. In S01E07, Jed pushes the doorbell at a neighbor's house, yet in the 8th episode, he still has no idea what that "strange music" playing is, but every time it does someone comes to the door.



** TropesAreNotBad: It works with the type of show it is.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Miss Hathaway is a lesbian. This is helped along, obviously, by the RealLife lesbianism of actress Nancy Kulp. Her movie actress, LilyTomlin, is also a lesbian.

* DudeNotFunny: The family's belief that young, unmarried Elly Mae is practically an over-the-hill spinster merely plays on a long-founded history of humorous stereotypes of hillbillies. Still, the episode in which Granny makes Elly wear a little girl-ish dress and carry a doll so that she will appear of marriageable age to a potential suitor...[[{{Squick}} well...]]
** This isn't helped with one of the earlier episodes which had the Clampett's confuse a twenty something caterer for a widow with children. When Jed asks how many kids she has, she thinks he is talking about coworkers and replies "Eight". Jed's response? "[[TeenPregnancy Got started early, huh?]] Must be from our neck of the woods".
** A MadeForTV [[ReunionShow reunion movie]] carried the ball even farther, depicting an [[ChristmasCake "old maid's home"]] where girls 18, 19, and older who were not married yet were sent to live.
