The Real McCoys (1957-1962)



The Real McCoys

(1957-1962)

30 minutes

Comedy / Family / Sitcom

The San Fernando Valley near Los Angeles, California. The struggles of a poor farm family, the McCoys: Grandpa Amos, widower, the head of the clan; Luke, his grandson; Kate, Luke’s wife; and Hassie and Little Luke, Luke’s sister and brother (their parents, deceased).

This series revolves around the lives of a mountain family who originally hailed from the fictional community of Smoky Corners, West Virginia. The McCoys moved to California, where they became dirt farmers. The family consisted of Grandpa Amos McCoy, the head of the family (Walter Brennan), his grandson Luke (Richard Crenna), Luke's new bride Kate (Kathleen Nolan), teenage sister Hassie, and 11-year-old brother Little Luke. The double-naming of the brothers was explained in the first episode by the elder Luke: Because their parents were so excited over the birth of the younger boy, "they forgot all about me!" 

When they arrived at the new ranch, which had been in the family (it was originally owned by an uncle, Ben McCoy, who had died), they also gained a Latino ranch hand named Pepino (Tony Martinez), who worked with them and eventually became part of the family. The McMichaels, a brother-and-sister family, lived on the hill not far from the McCoys, and Amos and George would sometimes spat. Kate was friendly with Flora McMichael, George's sister, and got involved with a lot of the life in the community. She also served as a mother figure for Luke's younger siblings, Hassie and Little Luke.

The Real McCoys Theme Song Lyrics:

Want you to meet the family that's known as The Real McCoys.
From West Virginee they came to stay in sunny Californi-ay.
That's Grand Pappy Amos and the girls and the boys of the family known as the Real McCoys.

Livin' like good folks should live, as happy as kids with toys.
Ol Grand Pappy Amos is head of the clan, he roars like a lion, but he's gentle as a lamb.
His grandson Luke keeps beaming with joy, since he made miss Kate Missus Luke McCoy.

What a house keeper Kate is, she's doin' what she enjoys.
No gal can beat her when it comes to looks, the same can be said about the way she cooks.
For Grand Pappy Amos and the girls and boys of the family known as the Real McCoys.

Sharing each others sorrows, enjoyin' each others joys.
Like all other families they quarrel and fuss, but it ain't never serious,
With Grand Pappy Amos and the girls and boys of the family known as the Real McCoys.
