It's bad enough that Granny gets into a fight with Mrs. Drysdale, but when she watches a wrestling match on TV, that really gets Granny riled up. She gets so upset seeing the "Beast of Boston" beat up Rebecca of Donnybrook Farm that The Beast won't know what's she's in for when Granny decides to help her. Written by Dionysius Exiguus

The Clampetts Discover Pro Wrestlng

The Rass'lin Clampetts is one of the better episodes of the series. After Granny and Mrs. Drysdale have an altercation, Jed tries explaining to Granny folks in the city don't settle their differences through violence, to which Jethro says "Yes they do" and tells about the women wrestlers on TV. The family settles in the parlor that night to watch Rebecca of Donnybrook Farm (a sweet little farm girl) fight The Boston Strong Girl. The Boston Strong Girl puts a heavy beating on Rebecca, and Granny declares she can't bear to watch, making Jethro leave with her. Later, as Jed and Elly are still watching the program, they witness Granny jump into the ring and teach the Boston Strong Girl why not to beat up on a Tennessee girl.
