Who among us doesn't love a rags-to-riches story? Throw in some squirrely characters, some hilarious lines like, "madder than a barefoot centipede on a hot rock" or "harder than braiding a mule's tail during fly season" and you see why this show was on for nine seasons with high ratings to boot!
These characters would make anyone laugh out loud. There's Granny who was always flying off the handle and carrying her "roomatiz medicine" (moonshine). Then there was the sweet and innocent tomboy Elly May with her crazy critters, like a hippopotamus (what granny calls a giant hog) and two pet chimpanzees called Skipper and Bessie. Jed had his clever observations and humorous one-liners. And "Miss Jane" would swoon over Jethro, as only she could do. The shenanigans the Clampetts got into knew no bounds. In each episode, you'd look forward to what job Jethro was working or what situation was making Mr. Drysdale sniff a stack of bills to remain calm.
Whether you see yourself as a tomboy or a prim and proper secretary, take this quiz and find out which kin folk suits you best. Once you find out, you'll be "happier than a gopher in soft dirt." Well, tarnation! Git started now!
