R.J. Reynolds and Kellog's were sponsors of the Beverly Hillbillies. I'm surprised the Chrysler Corporation didn't get a piece of the pie. A lot of their cars were used.

A former smoker watching this one would surely get the urge to light one up Lol! I love The Beverly Hillbillies!

lol a first time smoker wouldn't be casually dragging on it without choking first!

I own the complete first season and all the sponsor commercials are extras on the DVDs, including this one. All the actors were asked to do little acting bits for Winston. The only ones who you don't see doing cigarette ads for the show are Donna Douglas (Elly May) and Max Baer Jr. (Jethro), they do the ads for the alternate sponsor, Kellogg's cereal-- which are also on the DVD's. Donna is a Christian and was against smoking, so she did the cereal ads with Max. Seeing Buddy Ebsen and Irene Ryan and Raymond Bailey smoking is pretty damned weird because they don't really smoke during the series! They also sing the Winston jingle, too. I am disturbed by all the smoking ads. At least Buddy lived to be almost 100 years old. He must have given up smoking.

Back then smoking was common place, today it's almost shocking. I love the title!

The sad thing is that when I was growing up, I knew the words to all the TV cigarette ad jingles. You have to admit, they were catchy tunes. I especially loved the music that was used in the Benson and Hedges cigarette ads. That was the cigarette my mom smoked.

I think in a few of the series' early episodes Granny is occasionally shown smoking a pipe!

Even funnier and freakier is that Winston sponsored prime time cartoon The Flintstones, and Fred Barney and Wilma are shown smoking and singing the Winston jingle, too!

The freaky Winston commercial with The Flintstones is on this website.

I remember when I was as young as 8 that if someone gave me money to go to the store and buy them a pack of smokes they would sell them to me, no questions asked! Same for beer. Back then living in a small community there was only one store and everyone knew everyone, so they never questioned why you were buying it, because they knew who you were getting them for.
