It was called The Beverly Hillbillies, and followed along as a family of hillbillies tried to make their way in West Hollywood. Fans began to come in droves. Over the years, the show maintained its popularity, but no one had any idea what it was like to actually work on this set.

The End of His Career 

Character Jethro Bodine was a hit with viewers, and he was played by a man named Ma Adalbert Baer Jr. While the role gave the man success at the start of his acting career, he later blamed the show for ruining his acting future. Allegedly he was typecast after the show was over, and he rarely got any roles. He only ever managed to get some small roles after the show, but everything was already set in stone.
