Also Mrs. Haney , sometimes Mr. Haney has a wife! Mr. Kimball's Mom could've been Sarah the operator , that was mentioned once I think ? Or another time she was Mr. Trendal's Mom, right?

Also Mr. Wheeler and His Daughter Darlene ! Weren't they the people who went along on the Douglas's picnic? Than there would be Mrs. Wheeler and the other people that were crowded in Oliver's car that day !

Not much to see, nowadays. The closure of the school, in 1966, gutted the community. There's a community center and a church, but that is it, for visitors. Donnan, one county to the north, is a bit more scenic, what with the historical markers.

No. Never showed her but he sometimes spoke of a wife. But than other times it implied he was single, like the ep. where the pretty lady farmer came to Hooterville and all the men liked her and asked her to the dance including Mr. Haney !


Oh , I guess we can add the lady farmer to the census ,I guess she stayed!

I just saw the episode where Haney hit on Lisa's mom and asked her out. So if he was married it wasn't much of a marriage or an OPEN marriage!

I don't think they ever showed "Mrs.Haney" because who on earth would marry Mr.Haney??

Also G.A. takes place in a surreal Twilight Zone type universe, so I'd say reality isn't exactly static.... At times maybe there are a couple hundred ppl in Hooterville and other times maybe on 28 lol

Who takes care of the community center if there's fewer than 20 people left in town??

In 2005, Monti lost its church, which not only shut down the church, but also the parish hall. This left no public gathering space in the hamlet. So, 40 families (which included people who lived on farms outside of town, as well as in neighboring communities, some of whom lived there when there were more people there) bought the closed parish hall; it became the Monti Community Center, which is community-owned and community-run.

Ever since then, the center has been maintained and operated by a small group of a half a dozen people who live in and around the community. Throughout the year, meetings and events are held at the center, including the annual picnic and mass (the church is opened for the event), harvest festivals (Apple Gallop, Fall Festival), 4H events, weddings, funerals, etc. They used to even keep official meeting minutes, but after a few years, they stopped. There definitely is still a sense of community.

When I was a kid, and lived there, you would have to go to the T-intersection (there's only one) to get picked up by the bus, which would take you to Quasqueton. Nowadays, the school is in Winthrop. During those years, there were 6-8 kids.

The last time Mr. Haney mentioned his wife was near the end of season 4. The episode where Lisa's mom visited was the start of season 5 and Haney explicitly states he is a bachelor, leaving us to believe they divorced.

After season 4 he never mentioned his wife again, so there is some internal consistency in this case.

LMAO! I was about to post that. I thought they said 48? Regardless, how could they go from 28 residents last season to 46 or 48 this season??

Yet the way they make references to people living in the town it's fair to say at least a few hundred people live there. You wouldn't have a train stop and airport for a town of only 28 people!
Man what a life you must lead. It's a TV show about nonsense...like your post

I think it's a good topic. It's generated 2+ pages of discussion.
