A celebration is in order for the Clampett clan. Thirty five years ago today, The Return of the Beverly Hillbillies debuted on CBS.
The 1981 TV movie was written by Paul Henning, the creator of the original Beverly Hillbillies series, and featured the Clampetts reuniting a decade after the show ended in 1971. While Buddy Ebsen reprised his iconic role as Jed, the original Jethro (Max Baer Jr.) was replaced by Ray Young.
