Hoping to make a surprise return trip to their Ozark home for Christmas, the Clampett family embarks upon their first airplane ride. As amazed as they are when their "fancy train" takes flight, the Clampetts are even more astonished by the in-flight Western movie, convinced that they're being besieged by wild Indians. Unbeknownst to them, Cousin Pearl has decided to head westward and visit the Clampetts' Beverly Hills mansion. Ventriloquist Paul_Winchell appears as Pearl's ancient suitor Homer "Grandpa" Winch.
