About This Quiz

"Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Jed..."

Everyone loves a good "rags to riches" story — it's why we're so fascinated with tales of lottery winners, or with people like J.K. Rowling or Oprah, who rose from poverty to build their own empires. This fascination with stories of people from modest means who later struck it rich comes from a deep-down hope that maybe, with a little luck, that could be us someday. It's also a big part of what made '60s sitcom "The Beverly Hillbillies" so popular. After all, no one started off poorer than the Clampetts, and look where they ended up!

Of course, the enduring appeal of the show comes down to more than its rags to riches theme; the series also happened to hit the air at a time when Americans were starting to lament city life, and seeking a simpler life out in the country. This rural obsession helped make Jed, Granny, Jethro, and Elly May into household names, and also spawned a steady stream of shows set in the country, from "Petticoat Junction" to "Green Acres" and "Hee Haw."

Now, just in case you find yourself striking oil like Jed, you might be interested in knowing that the Clampetts' home from the show's opening credits hit the market in late 2017. Known as Chartwell, the Bel Air property is among the most expensive homes in America, with a price tag of $350 million. That's a whole lot of bubblin' crude.

Think you know all there is to know about this down-home family and their new life in the big city? Take our quiz to prove your Beverly Hillbillies IQ!
