Product Description

Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, Max Baer, Jr. The banjo music plays on into its third season featuring the hilarious and lovable Clampett family! The slack-jawed yokels continually find themselves in fish-out-of-water situations when they move to Beverly...Hills, that is. 34 episodes on 5 DVDs. 1964-65/color-b&w/14 hrs., 28 min/NR/fullscreen.

No. 1 in the ratings its first two seasons, The Beverly Hillbillies fell out of the Top Ten in season three, which is curious because this is arguably its best season yet, with several memorable story arcs, beginning with Jed's foray into the movie business as head of Mammoth Pictures. The season opener, "Jed Becomes a Movie Mogul," contains an interesting early instance of crossover marketing as the Clampetts watch scenes from an upcoming Rock Hudson and Doris Day comedy, Send Me No Flowers. This third season introduces two popular recurring characters: Movie star Dash Riprock (Larry Pennell), who takes a shine to Elly May (Donna Douglass), and beatnik Sheldon Epps (Alan Reed, Jr.), who comes to dig "Big Daddy Jed and his far-out family." The Clampetts may be considered the strangest family of millionaires ever to migrate to Beverly Hills, but they are never objects of ridicule. Jed (Buddy Ebsen) is a fount of mountain wisdom and common sense. Excitable Granny (Emmy-nominee Irene Ryan) holds strong to her mountain roots (although she strums a little rock and roll autoharp in "Flatt, Clampett, and Scruggs," and goes beatnik in "Cool School is Out"). Young 'uns Elly May and bumpkin cousin Jethro (Max Baer, Jr.) are more receptive to assimilation. This is the season in which Jethro, under the influence of James Bond, decides he wants to become a "double naught spy." As with The Official Second Season set, you have the option to watch each episode with the original sponsor openings and tags. This set also contains the corny but fun1993 reunion special, "The Legend of the Beverly Hillbillies," a where-are-they-now retrospective featuring Ebsen, Baer, and Douglass, as well as guest stars Reba McIntyre, Roy Clark, Ray Charles, Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor as their Green Acres characters, and, of all people, G. Gordon Liddy. Scorned by critics, The Beverly Hillbillies gets the last laugh. To paraphrase Granny: There are three things in life that improve with age: Corn squeezins, possum stew, and The Beverly Hillbillies. --Donald Liebenson

For years I have been making do with various collections of episodes, with only a poor instrumental theme bearing little resemblance to the original theme song. Now at last this wonderful show is being released in full season sets with the original opening and closing theme songs. Some reviewers have applauded the presence of the original sponsor messages on these discs. Personally, I don't like them, but the great thing is that you have the choice of playing the episodes with or without the advertising. Some of the difference may be that as Americans, the other reviewers remember the shows that way, with some nostalgia. For me, living in a country where cigarette advertising on television has never been legal, my fond memories are of the version without the ads.

This is a great set of my favourite season of a fantastic show, complete with all the original music , photo gallery and an excellent special feature, "The Legend of the Beverly Hillbillies". Every episode is packed with laughs; the Hillbillies are still as funny and as wonderful as I remember them from my childhood.

Contents are:

Jed Becomes a Movie Mogul

is beverly Hillbillies still coming oout on dvd, iam waiting for more seasons to come out. It's been over a year since season 3 came out and i want to know when the rest of the seasons are coming out. I really enjoy that show and i know other fans are also waiting for them to come out too , I hope there is enough people out there asking for this series and i hope the company keeps bringing them out on dvd's. So get moving and keep us fans happy by bringing out the rest of this great classic tv show. i got the first three seasons on dvd and when is the 4th season coming out, how much longer do we have to wait for the 4th season to come out. I hope they keep coming out because i really enjoy the ones i've already got on dvd. It was February 17, 2009 that season 3 came out, it's been over a year since it came out so don't tell me the rest aren't coming out soon. I' m sure there are other fans out there waiting for season 4 so don't take another year or two to bring it out.

If Paramount is not going to continue with this wonderful show, hopefully
SHOUT FACTORY will pick up the ball just like they have just done with Leave it
to Beaver and All in the Family. Seasons four thru nine are the in color seasons and they are anxiously awaited by many of us.

I forgot how innocent was our humor 40+ years ago.
It is still funny, and as clever as ever.
Yes, it has "stereo-typical things, but we didn't place such guarded care over good clean,honest and silly fun.
We all need to go back to where our words and actions were just "sticks and stones," and trust more in each other.
Wouldn't we be a lot better off if we did?!

The Beverly Hillbillies Official Third Season DVD is yet another wonderful offering by Paramount and it's sister company CBS DVD. It has all thirty four episodes of this third season of this funny and terrific show that ran on the CBS TV network from 1962-1971. It also features a documentary called The Legend of the Beverly Hillbillies that was released onto home video originally distributed by CBS Fox Home Video, who originally held the video rights to the TV show, as they released select choice episodes onto VHS until CBS and Viacom alongside Paramount took over the video rights from them.

Likewise with Official Second Season, we are treated with the entire third season. The episodes are digitally remastered from original negatives for superb and superior quality. The original theme song, The Ballad of Jed Clampett, is also included with all the episodes and we also have the original sponsorships and cast commercials that were originally with the series during the episodes initial network run. Likewise, you do have the option of watching the episodes with or without the sponsorships and cast commercials, but I prefer to watch the episodes with both the sponsorships and cast commercials for nostalgic and historical purposes as these spots are definitely a part of history.

Likewise, Paramount and it's sister company CBS DVD do another wonderful job here on these episodes. The digital remastering makes the episodes of this wonderful show look fresh, clean and new as the day that they were originally shown on the CBS TV network. They also again make mincemeat of all those public domain DVD sets that were released as the DVD boom was taking off.
