Storyline

Manhattan lawyer Douglas drags his protesting socialite wife and her finery to the rural backwash of a rundown farm outside Hooterville. They attempt to get the farm fixed up. Farmer Fred Ziffel's pig Arnold watches TV and is in many ways smarter than the Hootervillians. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

Trivia

There was a false rumor going around that the Green Acres cast had a luau on the final day of filming and ate Arnold the Pig. In an interview for a TV Land Special, Tom Lester revealed that he made the story up, because he got tired of people asking him whatever happened to Arnold the Pig. See more »

Goofs

Classic!
15 January 2004 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

When I was a kid, back in the 60's, there were two shows that I never missed. "Lost In Space" was one, and "Green Acres" was the other. Funny that both were on CBS, and I remember that my parents watched CBS's national news, too.

I always loved Mr. Haney, and when Mr. Douglas begins some story about "The American Farmer", and the patriotic music begins playing in the background. On one episode, the other actors begin looking for where the music is coming from. Priceless gag.

I am looking forward to the DVD of this series. I hope that they are cleaned up, as what we see on TV now are fairly faded prints of the show.
