The Beverly Hillbillies Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before

Granny M.D

Granny was a hilarious character on the show, but some of her antics were so crazy that noone picked up on them! Throughout the series, she often referred to herself as “Granny M.D”, which a lot of people just shrugged off. However, it was later revealed that when she was saying that, she was referring to herself as Grammy Mountain Doctor. It was a fitting nickname, since she was often the voice of reason on the show and taking care of everyone.

The Talented Buddy Ebsen

Buddy Ebsen was meant to play the main role of Jed Clampett on Beverly Hillbillies, but he was a busy actor long before that. In fact, the man was a sought-after dancer, too! His long limbs gave him serious advantages over the competition. Ebsen was actually chosen to play the role of the Tinman in The Wizard of Oz, but he ended up being extremely allergic to the metallic makeup! He eventually had to be replaced, and still had health struggles long after the movie.
