Donna Douglas"The Beverly Hillbillies" star Donna Douglas has settled her lawsuit against TV bosses and toy maker Mattel over a Barbie that was created using her character's likeness.
 
The actress, who played tomboy Elly May Clampett in the long-running series, launched a legal battle against bosses at CBS Corp. and Mattel Inc. in May after alleging both companies neglected to seek her permission before inking a partnership to make the doll.

According to the Associated Press, the 78 year old originally sought at least $75,000 in damages.
