Default Anyone else think they should have used the name Green Acres more to describe there

farm?

The first episode is the only time the house is called Green Acres. It's either the Hanney Place or the Douglass's farm. I think the name of the show should have had Hooterville in the name or refered to Green Acres more. Anybody else think so?

Green Acres was a perfect name, it made the fact that the farm was a total failure that much more ironic

I think they name is fine, but they should have used it more on the show.

As I recall, they do refer to the farm as Green Acres more than once in the entire series, but not until the later episodes.

The original concept of Green Acres was based on a CBS Radio Series.."Granby's Green Acres" which was a 1950 summer replacement series starring Gale Gordon and Bea Benederet as the city to the country couple (here called the Granbys)..Some differences-Eb was played as an older man, Kimball was the General Store proprietor..The County agent (unnamed) was much smarter than Alvy Moore's TV counterpart..And the Granbys had a teen age daughter named Janice. The One major difference is that the TV version was set in Hooterville.

Below is a link to listen to four episodes

In the episode where Oliver protests the wheat penalties, Mr. Haney drives up to Oliver's farm with a load of wheat seed, dressed in military gear, armed, and says he is ready to fight "the siege of Green Acres" (for a fee, of course !)
