We all know Max Baer Jr. as Jethro Bodine from The Beverly Hillbillies, but little do we know about him now. Now he is 83 years old.Jed brought his Clampett family with him and stood out as many other characters. He played the role of Jethro Bodine, son of Jed’s cousin Parl.
It was a huge success when The Beverly Hillbillies aired in 1962. It was at No. 1 more than any tv show. People loved this show and it ran for 11 years. It has 9 seasons and a total of 274 episodes.
IT was also nominated for Golden Globe Award as the best tv show comedy and four Emmy nominations.
Max’s laugh made all of us laugh, and made us believe that his character was so real.
He was a true American Icon of comedy. We are sad that his life after the show didn’t turn out as great as we thought. But no matter what happened after the show, we all remember Max as one of the greatest comedy actors who made us laugh every episode.
Max, you have a special place in our hearts
