THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES - "Trick Or Treat" (1962)

Well, to start off this 2013 Halloween Countdown here in The Dungeon, we've got a real sweet treat for ya'll tonight! It's an episode of  "The Beverly Hillbillies" entitled "Trick Or Treat" and the theme song was played by those masters of the fiddle and banjo, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs!

This here's from season one, episode number 6 of "The Beverly Hillbillies!" Now I'm figgerin' everybody in the civilized world knows who the Beverly Hillbillies were since they was on the boob tube for 9 seasons from 1962 to 1971!

Indeed it was a mighty talented cast with Buddy Ebsen as Jed Clampett, Irene Ryan as Daisy Moses, or better known as Grannie, Max Baer Jr. as Jethro Bodine, and the gorgeous Donna Douglas as Elly Mae Clampett!

This particular episode, Max got to do double duty as Jethro, AND cousin Jethrine! Just in case you didn't know it, Max's Pappy was heavyweight boxing champion Max Baer who had a career record of 68 wins and 13 losses!

Former jazz musician Phil Gordon has the role of Jasper "Jazzbo" Depew! Jasper is incredibly smitten with Jethrine, and tells her how much he likes big women! Max was 6 foot four inches!

Grannie's upset because nobody ever comes to visit them, so the family decides that they'll just go out and visit the neighbors instead, not knowing that it's Halloween. Jethro's hoping maybe one of them neighbor's just might give them some salted-down possum! Yum!!

So the nice neighbor lady, thinking they're in costume, gives the family some Halloween treats!

These kids are ready to go out trick or treating, but it's not dark yet!!

Being from the hills, and not knowing about the likes of something like Halloween, Jed and Grannie are taken aback by the children's horrible appearance!

They feel real bad about how deformed the poor children are!

Once they get back home with their goodies, the whole family is completely delighted with their score! This here episode can be viewed or downloaded for free from The Internet Archive, and there ain't nothing stopping you from doing so, except yourself!

Cool! Sort of like a reverse version of the way the Munsters are always viewed as normal to themselves but monsters to everyone else. ;)
