      “Something for the Queen” is an episode of “The Beverly Hillbillies”. The episode continues the storyline established in the previous episode, “A Bundle for Britain”. This episode has the Clampetts along with Milburn Drysdale and Jane Hathaway boarding a plane for London, England. The first half of the episode is dedicated to the plane ride while the second half of the episode shows the Clampetts driving around London and arriving at their castle in Kent, England, first seen in the previous season’s episode titled, “The Clampetts in London”.

      In “Something for the Queen”, the laughs take place in the air on the airplane and on the ground in London, England. Jethro smuggles Elly May’s turkey vulture on board and causes havoc when Mr. Drysdale lets the bird out in the bathroom after going to the bathroom to see what was inside the bag Jethro was carrying. Mr. Drysdale comes out of the bathroom literally looking as if he was attacked, and he actually was! It’s quite funny seeing him wobble from the bathroom ib a


      state of shock and horror and it’s even more funny when Granny thinks Mr. Drysdale did something stupid by sticking his head out of the window of the plane only to get smacked in the head by a bird, as evidenced by the feather in his hair. She thinks the scratch marks on his head are too close to his brain and now he’s likely to develop goose fever. That’s Granny’s prognosis for you, her medical knowledge is certainly knowledge that no city doctor could ever hope to comprehend! Other funny scenes on the airplane include a passenger sitting in back of Jethro and Mr. Drysdale but in front of Granny and Jed, so he overhears all this talk about goose fever, Jed owning Canada and so forth, causing him to be so nervous that he requests a tranquilizer! It’s even funnier when the poor guy ducks into the bathroom and meets up with the turkey vulture that Mr. Drysdale left in there! Great performances on everyone’s part and wacky, off the wall writing ...

      • on the part of the writers!

        Once in London, England, the viewers are treated to some beautiful shots of buildings and locations, including Buckingham Palace. Then, there’s the aerial shots of Clampett Castle in Kent, England,which looks as glorious and impressive as ever. Taking a tour with the Clampetts across London, England was a treat to watch and it was funny seeing Granny and everyone, aside from Jed, thinking that the reason people were staring was because the Clampetts had supposedly ran away from “The War of the Roses” feud. Of course, the Clampetts have no idea everyone they talk to is referring to a feud that occurred so very long ago. Instead, the Clampetts, aside from Jed, think that everyone believes they ran off before finishing the feud with those that live in a castle near to theirs and ended up releasing their dogs on Jethro after he rode a horse through their rose garden. This is a storyline that was started during the Clampetts previous visit to their castle last season, but is

        followed up on here and will be the focus of the next episode. I love how the writers were able to bring together multiple storylines in these episodes and see that each storyline received a good wrap-up. There’s a definite sense of continuity and that benefits the episodes.

        “Something for the Queen” is an episode of “The Beverly Hillbillies” that features some impressive shots of London, England and some great comedy. I really liked the fact that the writers didn’t forget “The War of the Roses” storyline that they established last season and can now play with further before wrapping it up. It’s also fun watching Mr. Drysdale continue to desperately try and come up with a scheme that will allow him to keep Jed’s money in his bank without offending Jed, who’s dead-set on helping the Queen in her time of need. This is definitely a fun episode to watch thanks to the great writing and attractive shots of London, England and Kent, England. A “10″ rating is what I’m giving this episode of “The Beverly Hillbillies”.
