Synopsis


City slickers Oliver and Lisa Douglas (Eddie Albert, Eva Gabor) make the best of another year of "farm livin'" in bucolic Hooterville as Green Acres enters its second season. Still stubbornly determined to make a profit on his rundown farm, Oliver continues to be flustered by such local looneys as con artist Mr. Haney (Pat Buttram), dopey handyman Eb (Tom Lester), and terminally self-contradictory county agent Hank Kimball (Alvy Moore). Meanwhile, the sophisticated, cosmopolitan Lisa Douglas has resigned herself to her rural environs, though she still can be found donning her most glamorous gowns and most valuable jewels to perform such simple chores as milking the cows and raking the leaves. (She still has not learned to cook, however, despite her most valiant efforts!) Gaining prominence throughout season two is Arnold, the pet pig of neighboring farmers Fred and Doris Ziffel (Hank Patterson, Barbara Pepper). Beginning with an episode in which Arnold is mistakenly drafted into the army, the porcine superstar will by the end of the season become the second most popular nonhuman actor on television, losing first place only to Lassie. Conspicuous by their presence during season two are two additional supporting characters: carpenter Alf Monroe (Sid Melton) and his sibling and partner Ralph -- who happens to be a girl (played by Mary Grace Canfield). Of the 30 second-season Green Acres episodes, the most memorable is the one in which Oliver, Lisa, and Hank Kimball appear in a charity-show staging of the TV series The Beverly Hillbillies -- which, like Green Acres, was produced by Paul Henning (what a coincidence!).

    How can anybody NOT love Green Acres? It's a perfect comedy formula - one straight man in a sea of goofy characters. Hick jokes are about the last jokes you can make without offending anybody, even hicks. So sit back and enjoy the huckster, the absent-minded idiot, the incompetent brother-sister handyman team, the TV-watching pig, and Uncle Joe helping himself to whatever he wants from Drucker's General Store. They seem to have forgotten how to make a TV show this enjoyable, so you might as well watch the oldies. It's still the best thing on.
