Don’t Mess with Elly May….

I’ve seen recent pictures….

She is one scary woman….

And she’s still playing Elly May on the road….

They really should just cut her a check…

The actress who played buxom hayseed Elly May Clampett on The Beverly Hillbillies believes Mattel (MAT) done her wrong over a doll.

Donna Douglas, who appeared as Elly May in every episode of the TV comedy from 1962 to 1971, is suing the toy giant for marketing its Elly May Barbie and a photo of Douglas in the packaging without her endorsement. The suit seeks compensation for illegal usage of her name and likeness, according to a Associated Press story in The Los Angeles Times. Mattel didn’t comment in the article.

Douglas, now 77, joins an odd list of other celebrities who toyed with legal action after a doll ticked them off.
