5. The Theme Song Hit the Charts

Even if you don’t remember many of the episodes, you probably are familiar with the Beverly Hillbillies catchy theme song. It’s right up there with Gilligan’s Island or The Brady Bunch for toe-tapping cheesy goodness. The theme song for this show was called “The Ballad of Jed Clampett,” which was sung by country western singer Jerry Scoggins and featured the bluegrass duo Flatt and Scruggs. The song actually ended up landing on the 44 spot of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Do you know all the lyrics?
