211 Words1 Page
I agree that The Beverly Hillbillies in episode two exploits hillbilly, redneck and white trash stereotypes. In the beginning of the scene, the Clampett family arrived to their new home stunned that they have a driveway leading to their residence. This proves that hillbillies are. stereotype to be in a low class Caucasian. In addition, as the attendant showed the family around their new home, the grandma told jethro to "fetch my stove so I can get some vittles to cook". This image demonstrate that rednecks and hillbillies have to go hunting for their food. Unlike the richer folks they have servants to cook for them. The grandma was surprised that everything was installed in the house for them showing that hillbillies are in a culture lag.
