Elly Mae ClampettElly Mae Clampett, The actress who played Elly May Clampett on the “The Beverly Hillbillies” has settled her lawsuit over a Barbie doll that uses the character’s name and likeness. An attorney for actress Donna Douglas says she settled with CBS and toymaker Mattel on Tuesday. Douglas’ lawsuit had sought at least $75,000. Details of the settlement were confidential.

Douglas played the critter-loving tomboy for all nine seasons of the CBS comedy about a backwoods family that strikes oil and moves to Beverly Hills.

She claimed CBS Consumer Products Inc. and Mattel Inc. needed her approval for the Barbie. In court documents, CBS and Mattel said they didn’t need her OK because the network holds exclusive rights to the character.
