The main characters in the story were a family of four yokels ("Ma" and "Pa", and their children Billy and Daisy) who had come into a great deal of money (possibly inspired by The Beverly Hillbillies). Unhappy with their new way of life, they tried to get rid of their wealth using a variety of schemes. Trying to stop them was their long-suffering bank manager.
The stories usually ended with the Bumpkins' schemes backfiring, leaving them either as well off they were before, or even more wealthy, much to the delight of the bank manager. Proved very popular with kids.
When Whoopee! merged with Whizzer and Chips in 1985, the strip went with it, becoming part of the Whizzer section. Likewise, when Whizzer and Chips merged with Buster in 1990, the strip continued there. It remained in Buster until the comic's last issue at the beginning of 2000, though, as with all other strips by this time, it had by now become a reprint. it was drawn by Mike Lacey throughout except for the last years in Whizzer and Chips by Jim Hanson.
