The Great Feud was the twelveth episode of season one. The episode originally aired on December 12, 1962.


When Sonny Drysdale (Louis Nye) runs off in terror at the prospect of marrying Elly May, the Clampetts grab their shootin' irons and prepare for a feud against the Drysdale family. Descending upon the Drysdale manion, the hillbillies take "Mister Butler" (aka Ravenswood) prisoner, but Granny orders Jethro to let the pretty French maid go ("Aw, shucks!") Meanwhile, Drysdale tries to solve the dilemma in a civilized manner. Enhanced by a terrific "running commentary" ballad courtesy of Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, "The Great Feud" was originally telecast on December 12, 1962. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
