Here Comes The Hillbilly Stereotype Analysis

256 Words2 Pages
I personally believe that stereotype is an issue of mainstream media in the United States, especially in TV shows and movies. After reading “Here Comes the Hillbilly, Again” by Michelle Dean, and watching The Beverly Hillbillies - Getting Settled, I agree with Dean’s claim that the film producer used hillbilly stereotype to create comedic effect for the sitcom. For audience, this episode is entertaining because it has many humorous situations that exceed audience’s imagination. However, it also creates a stereotype of Southern people through the images of the Clampett family. Although they plan to live in Beverly Hills, an area for wealthy people, their old car, their old things, and their poor physical appearance do not look like millionaires.
