The Beverly Hillbillies is an American television comedy that ran for nine seasons on CBS from September 26, 1962 to March 23, 1971. It was about a backwoods family that became rich and moved to Beverly Hills in California. It was set in the same fictional reality as Green Acres and Petticoat Junction.
The series starred Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, and Max Baer, Jr., who mostly found themselves typecast after the series ended (though Buddy Ebsen enjoyed later success as the star of the TV series Barnaby Jones).
Buddy Ebsen was also the original Tin-Man in The Wizard of Oz. He got the role after trading the role of the Scarecrow with Ray Bolger, but he had to give it up to Jack Haley after an allergy to his silver make-up.
