In Norse myth, Thor often plays the oaf. One tale has Thor in a wrestling match with an old crone, who personifies old age. The crone won. The crone’s name was Elli – a near miss to Beverly Hillbillies trivia. Irene Ryan played Granny and the TV series did a few things similar to this ancient myth; they had an episode where the Hillbillies got into a match with a wrestling family.
