The final part of the rural trilogy of sitcoms from Filmways landed on CBS in 1965, and, admittedly, Green Acres seemed to be the best of the three, largely because of the ensemble cast built around stars Eddie Albert & Eva Gabor.
Attorney Oliver Douglas (Albert) buys a farm sight unseen in rural Hooterville, and decides to relocate from his tony penthouse in New York, much to the discomfort of wife Lisa (Gabor). However, while Lisa is quickly embraced by the townsfolk, Oliver is perpetually befuddled and conned by snake oil salesman Haney (Pat Buttram), and exasperated by scatterbrained county agent Hank Kimball (Alvy Moore).
Perhaps the real breakout star of Green Acres, or so it would appear, was Arnold, a pig that was treated like a son by his owners, the Ziffels. In other words, he was a porcine answer to Snoopy, the iconic beagle from the Peanuts strip, except that he could not walk on his hind legs, as Snoopy could.
Add to the mix the Monroes, a brother & sister team of plumbers who billed themselves as "brothers", although Ralph (Mary Grace Canfield) was clearly a woman, smitten with the dimwitted Kimball. Alf (Sid Melton, ex-Make Room For Daddy, Captain Midnight) was the more rational half, but disappeared for a time near the end of the series' run (Melton reunited with Danny Thomas on Make Room For Granddaddy). Problem was, the Monroes never finished anything they started!
Amazingly, no one thought to adapt this into a comic strip, as there were plenty of gags that could translate well into a daily strip. There was, however, a comic book version of the series, which, sadly, didn't last very long.
Here's the classic theme song, sung by Eddie Albert & Eva Gabor:
There was a reunion movie, back in the late 80's, but most of the cast has left us since then.
