I first saw this episode back in the 1960s. I watched it again in its entirety about 10 years ago. Then I watched it again today. It is funny how each time I watch it, different things pop out at me.
What I learned about bodybuilding from Dave Draper's appearance on The Beverly Hillbillies.
1. Outsiders will view bodybuilding as a disease (Barbell Bloat).
2. Aesthetic Strength versus Functional Strength (see 19:25 in the video). Clearly, Ellie Mae Clampett was a crossfitter.
3. Origin of the word "swole"! Spoken by Granny at 5:50 - "Look at his arms, swole up twice to normal size!"
4. People will never understand what it is we are trying to do (see video at 12:23). "Swole up as he is, that poor boy is trying to build hisself a wheelchair."
