Premise

CBS hit a ratings gusher with this rustic sitcom about a poor mountaineer turned oil baron who relocated, along with his eccentric clan, to 'the hills of Beverly.' The series frequently topped the Nielsens during its nine-season run. It also spun off the long-running 'Petticoat Junction' (which, in turn, spun off 'Green Acres'), but a 1993 feature film based on the original proved unsuccessful.
