    Elly's gone to be with her critters now.

    Down to one surviving Clampett (Jethro) and one surviving Bodine (Jethrene). Long live Max Baer Jr.!

    Sad!
    I enjoyed watching the Beverly Hillbillies as a kid, and I thought Elly May was so sweet, as she loved her critters so much.
    RIP beautiful lady, Donna Douglas!
    Thank you for being a part of my childhood! :)
