Donna Douglas as Elly May ClampettElly May's Bra - On the sitcom THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES/CBS/1962-71 Elly May Clampett (Donna Douglas), a naive, tomboy is given a bra but thinks it is a weapon. When she shows it to her equally naive backwoods uncle Jed (Buddy Ebsen) he says "Well, I'll be doggone!, a store-bought, lace-trimmed, double-barreled slingshot."

TRIVIA NOTE: Some more bra quotes from other TV series:

  • Newsradio [Bill] "Is it cold in her or are you wearing an anatomically correct bra?"
  • thirtysomething [Hope] "I'm getting that feeling, Ellyn, that giggly, pre-teen shopping for a training bra feeling."
  • 8 Simple Rules...[Paul] "Okay, Cupcake, I think you missed the word "under" in underwear because I can see your bra and that slingshot your wearing under your pants."
  • Are You Being Served? [Mr. Humphries] "Oh, I hope not. If she burns her bra, we'll have to call out the London Fire Brigade."
  • Roswell [Maria] "It's an aqua bra. You know, all the fun of implants without the invasive surgery part."
  • She Spies [D.D. Cummings] Do you guys think I should wear a strapless bra or an underwire bra with this dress? Because the dress is tight, you know? On the one hand I should have support because I don't want things looking droopy, but on the other hand the shoulders are bared so I don't want to show straps. Wait a minute! What am I talking about? Me, in a bra?
