Storyline

Sick of the complications of life in Manhattan, successful, wealthy attorney, Oliver Wendell Douglas buys a run down farm from con-man, Eustace Haney, much to his sophisticated Hungarian wife, Lisa's chagrin. When they arrive at the ramshackle place, Oliver and Lisa try to get used to the bizarre town of Hooterville while trying to make the shack home with the help of their humble but slightly slow hired hand, Eb. Ironically, Lisa is the one who makes friends with their cow, Eleanor, their chicken, Alice and Fred Ziffel's television-loving pet pig, Arnold who he treats like a son and seems to be smarter than the citizens in several ways.

Fred Ziffel: Oh, yes he could, I personally attended his funeral.
Oliver Douglas: Are you sure?

Crazy Credits

As each Opening Credits concludes & just after the comical duo of Eddie Albert & Eva Gabor concluded their comical song, singing solo lines, there is one more "Shave and a Hair Cut: Six Bits" musical. As the musical concludes, (approximately five to ten seconds) Eddie Albert & Eva Gabor stand still as the melody plays. As "Six Bits" melody occurs they act like a living drawing of Grant Wood's "American Gothic" drawing. As "six bits" melody occurs, Eddie Albert quickly taps the ground twice, completing the Opening Credits. See more »

"Oli-va!"
15 November 2006 | by BumpyRideSee all my reviews

Watching this as a child during the late 1960's I didn't like this show. I didn't find it funny because it frustrated me! With all of the locals frustrating Mr. Douglas endlessly, they frustrated me too. Stumbling upon the show years later, the frustration was gone and I could finally enjoy the humor of it all. This was light years ahead of the tame (and boring) "Pettycoat Junction." This was life with "The Three Stooges." I always loved the on-going home improvement projects with the closet doors opening to the outside, the telephone poll phone, the over-blown big chic New York City furniture stuffed into a little farmhouse, Lisa's pink appliances, her cooking, Arnold the pig and many more. When they say they don't make 'em like they used to, they don't, and that's a darn shame.
