YMMV / The Beverly Hillbillies

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Miss Hathaway is a lesbian. This is helped along, obviously, by the Real Life lesbianism of both of her actresses — Nancy Kulp (in the TV series) and Lily Tomlin (in the film).
  • Ear Worm: The theme song.
    Humorist Dave Barry: "If you surveyed a hundred typical middle-aged Americans, I bet you'd find that only two of them could tell you their blood types, but every last one of them would know the theme song from The Beverly Hillbillies."
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Sonny only appeared in ten episodes, but his actor received lots of fan mail.
  • Vindicated by History: The show remains a staple of syndicated television to this day, and still brings in decent ratings, mostly on digital subchannels dedicated to reruns of this nature.
