At last! Official full season sets of The Beverly HillbilliesMay 08, 2009
By Warwick Bennett
For years I have been making do with various collections of episodes, with only a poor instrumental theme bearing little resemblance to the original theme song. Now at last this wonderful show is being released in full season sets with the original opening and closing theme songs. Some reviewers have applauded the presence of the original sponsor messages on these discs. Personally, I don't like them, but the great thing is that you have the choice of playing the episodes with or without the advertising. Some of the difference may be that as Americans, the other reviewers remember the shows that way, with some nostalgia. For me, living in a country where cigarette advertising on television has never been legal, my fond memories are of the version without the ads.
This is a great set of my favourite season of a fantastic show, complete with all the original music , photo gallery and an excellent special feature, "The Legend of the Beverly Hillbillies". Every episode is packed with laughs; the Hillbillies are still as funny and as wonderful as I remember them from my childhood.

Yet Another Wonderful DVD Set Of This Wonderful & Funny ShowJan 15, 2012
By Frank R. Schoonover
The Beverly Hillbillies Official Third Season DVD is yet another wonderful offering by Paramount and it's sister company CBS DVD. It has all thirty four episodes of this third season of this funny and terrific show that ran on the CBS TV network from 1962-1971. It also features a documentary called The Legend of the Beverly Hillbillies that was released onto home video originally distributed by CBS Fox Home Video, who originally held the video rights to the TV show, as they released select choice episodes onto VHS until CBS and Viacom alongside Paramount took over the video rights from them.
Likewise with Official Second Season, we are treated with the entire third season. The episodes are digitally remastered from original negatives for superb and superior quality. The original theme song, The Ballad of Jed Clampett, is also included with all the episodes and we also have the original sponsorships and cast commercials that were originally with the series during the episodes initial network run. Likewise, you do have the option of watching the episodes with or without the sponsorships and cast commercials, but I prefer to watch the episodes with both the sponsorships and cast commercials for nostalgic and historical purposes as these spots are definitely a part of history.
Likewise, Paramount and it's sister company CBS DVD do another wonderful job here on these episodes. The digital remastering makes the episodes of this wonderful show look fresh, clean and new as the day that they were originally shown on the CBS TV network. They also again make mincemeat of all those public domain DVD sets that were released as the DVD boom was taking off.
Likewise, this is another one of the best sets of this classic TV show that has been released on DVD with Official Second Season, MPI's Ultimate Collections Volumes 1 & 2 and it's companion MPI's Beverly Hillbillies/Petticoat Junction Christmas Collection alongside this.
If anyone from Paramount and it's sister company CBS DVD is reading this, why not release the entire Beverly Hillbillies series on DVD? That way, we fans and admirers of this series can really be overjoyed. This is only a suggestion, but again, I still think that the entire series should be released officially on DVD. That would be "IT".
Overall, this is another one of the finest collections of The Beverly Hillbillies that nobody who loves this show should be without. This also should be in every fans DVD library.

Season 4 Beverly HillbilliesJun 29, 2010
By John P. Brown
is beverly Hillbillies still coming oout on dvd, iam waiting for more seasons to come out. It's been over a year since season 3 came out and i want to know when the rest of the seasons are coming out. I really enjoy that show and i know other fans are also waiting for them to come out too , I hope there is enough people out there asking for this series and i hope the company keeps bringing them out on dvd's. So get moving and keep us fans happy by bringing out the rest of this great classic tv show. i got the first three seasons on dvd and when is the 4th season coming out, how much longer do we have to wait for the 4th season to come out. I hope they keep coming out because i really enjoy the ones i've already got on dvd. It was February 17, 2009 that season 3 came out, it's been over a year since it came out so don't tell me the rest aren't coming out soon. I' m sure there are other fans out there waiting for season 4 so don't take another year or two to bring it out.

By Charles L. Hall Jr.
If Paramount is not going to continue with this wonderful show, hopefully
SHOUT FACTORY will pick up the ball just like they have just done with Leave it
to Beaver and All in the Family. Seasons four thru nine are the in color seasons and they are anxiously awaited by many of us.

this is FUNNY stuff.Apr 19, 2009
By Stephen Dickensheets
I forgot how innocent was our humor 40+ years ago.
It is still funny, and as clever as ever.
Yes, it has "stereo-typical things, but we didn't place such guarded care over good clean,honest and silly fun.
We all need to go back to where our words and actions were just "sticks and stones," and trust more in each other.
Wouldn't we be a lot better off if we did?!
