This 2-DVD set includes the entire second season (30 episodes) of this 1960's classic TV show, starring Eddie Albert and Ava Gabor as a sophisticated couple transplanted to farm life from New York City and their struggles (often hysterical) to adjust.
Based upon a 1950s radio show called GRANBY'S GREEN ACRES, which featured Gale Gordon (HERE'S LUCY) and Bea Benadaret (PETTICOAT JUNCTION), this 1965 television situation comedy debuted as a spin-off of PETTICOAT JUNCTION (which in turn had spun off from THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES), with a different cast. New York lawyer Oliver Wendell Douglas (Eddie Albert) uproots his glamorous city-loving wife Lisa (Eva Gabor) to move to a ramshackle farm near Hooterville, a breeding ground for lunatic country characters: con man Mr. Haney (Pat Buttram), dimwitted helper Eb (Tom Lester), storekeeper Sam Drucker (Frank Cady), idiot county agent Hank Kimball (Alvy Moore), and Fred Ziffel and his treasured pig named Arnold, among many others. Everything Douglas touches on his farm immediately falls to pieces, and the colorful denizens of Hooterville remain more of a hindrance than a help.
