Won't You Come Home, Hank Kimball?
1 September 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

When the county gets a new supervisor, Mr. Kimball gets the boot. Only he's not very unhappy about it--getting fired gives him an excuse not to marry Ralph Monroe! Lisa sees how heartbroken this has made Ralph and goes to Kimball's boss, Mr. Treffinger (Parley Baer) to see if she can help him get his job back. But its no good. Treffinger insists the new guy, Mr. Schmidlapp (the same name used by Howard Morris' character in the Jerry Lewis movie "Way, Way Out") has the job for as long as he wants it. In the meantime, Mr. Douglas and the other farmers don;t like Schmidlap's attitude. So despite what it might mean for Kimball, they decide to help him get his job back. They do it by sicking Ralph on him! Her attempts to be a seductress are both funny and embarrassing at the same time. A side note to this episode: Baer, who plays Mr. Treffinger played Eb in the original radio version of "Green Acres". Gale Gordon and Bea Bernadette had the lead roles.
