The Beverly Hillbillies provided us with loads of laughs and entertainment, but the producers managed to keep quite a few secrets hidden from the fans. We’ve managed to dig up all the dirt on your favorite hick family, so ya’ll better take a look!

Critics Didn’t Agree

The show was a huge success for just over nine years. Fans seemed to relate to a group of hicks who managed to shake up the snobbery of Beverly Hills. Despite a whopping seven Emmy nominations, many TV critics didn’t actually enjoy the show. Critics found the show “strained and unfunny” and “painful to sit through”. Still not bad for one of the most watched programs on TV. In 1993, a film remake was also released to terrible reviews. They just couldn’t capture the original magic that had fans hooked.
