Green Acres, Season 4Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
The hilarious rural adventures of lawyer Oliver Wendell Holmes (Eddie Albert) and his socialite wife Lisa (Eva Gabor) in the bizarre rural enclave known as Hooterville. By this point in the series, Oliver has started to give up making sense of the nonsensical goings-on. The season starts with Arnold Ziffel, Hooterville’s smartest pig, winning a trip to Hawaii, and in a later episode travels to Washington to represent the Young Agricultural Society. Oliver hangs out a shingle and Lisa nearly destroys his new practice with her lack of secretarial skills. Haney rents out Oliver and Lisa’s house while they’re on vacation with Eb, and later sells Oliver a horse for Lisa’s birthday that talks named “Mr. Fred.” Lisa ruins a chicken-raising business when she treats them like human children, and a dairy when she insists on finding the perfect bull for a match to the milk cow. And these are just a few moments from this fourth season of one of the funniest classic TV series ever!

Green Acres is a Great Show
Great Show. But These are the worst previews ever !! It's just the opening theme song over and over. Not a good sales technique.
I agree...everybody love the opening theme and everything but how about some footage?
Wacky Wacky Wacky
I watched this as a kid in the 1960's when I was in junior high school. I completely missed the off beat things that were tossed in. It's the reverse of The Beverly Hillbillies only in theory. We started taking trips to Hooterville before bedtime and I never thought I'd be on Season Four and still wanting more.
