Hank Kimball was my favorite.I loved his mixups and his style-so easily imitatable.

"Good morning-well,it's not a good morning.Not a bad morning,either,it's more of a...Guess who I met at the bank?No,it couldn't have been the bank.That's been closed for twenty years."

I still whistle Kimball's inane tune when I'm in the mood.

Mr. Haney was the best con man that ever lived. I wonder what he is up to these days?

Eva Gabor played the role of Lisa and was "believable??"

The fact that all the characters in this show had crazy idiosyncrasies was what made it funny. Lisa didn't know the difference between a wrench and a screwdriver, she called Oliver from a New York restaurant to order for her, she packs a picnic basket with golden candleholders so there is no room for food... An entertaining characterization, like the rest of them, but hardly "believable."

I agree with rjrane. I remember an episode where Hank stayed in his jeep all night because he couldn't figure out how to get his seatbelt off. He was such a marroon.

Cool

Fred Ziffel is my kind of neighbor. Arnold could come over and watch T.V. at my house anytime as long as I am not having bacon & eggs for breakfast.

I was only eight years old and in the third grade when "GREEN ACRES" first debuted on CBS. Eva Gabor, who played Lisa Douglas on the show, was not only my very favorite character on the show, she was my very favorite actress and the idol of my youth. Although I didn't start watching "GREEN ACRES" until six months after it originally debuted on CBS, it still remains my favorite show of all time. I was just simply captured by Eva Gabor's beauty, charm, and glamour.

I have collected pictures of Eva Gabor from the time that she was doing the show up to when she was going out with Merv Griffin. Of all the pictures that I have of Eva Gabor, two of them are my personal favorites, which were taken when she was doing "GREEN ACRES". Although these are black and white pictures, she was photographed wearing this beautiful, but very sexy, lightly-colored print strapless gown, a medium-sized choker necklace, tiny droop earrings, and a beautiful satin stole, which was wrapped around her, just below her bare shoulders. Her beautiful blonde hair was styled so perfectly neat and chic, and she had that beautiful, bright, sunny, and very sexy smile. She was definitely one of the most beautiful and glamorous women in all of Hollywood, and she looked absolutely beautiful, glamorous, stunning, and very sexy, especially in that strapless gown. To me, she was a very glamourous sex symbol.

These two pictures appeared in the August, 1967 issue of "TV RADIO MIRROR", in which she was photographed standing next to her husband at the time, Richard Brown, and in the April, 1970 issude of "PHOTOPLAY", in which Mr. Blackwell named her one of the Ten Best Dressed Women of 1969.

This may sound crazy, but I look at these two pictures every time I listen to music, especially the Motown artists (Diana Ross and the Supremes, the Four Tops, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, etc.) I have also combined on to one tape each my very favorite episodes of "GREEN ACRES" with these rock/pop music informercials, documentaries, movies, and specials.

When I heard the news of Eva Gabor's sudden illness and death back on July 4, 1995, I just couldn't believe it. Then in August of '97, my cable company added TV Land to it's lineup, which at the time was airing the reruns of "GREEN ACRES", and I just simply started crying on and off. I just couldn't accept the fact that she's now deceased, and I really miss her.

I plan to visit Eva Gabor's grave on my next visit out to Los Angeles. She's buried in Westwood Memorial Cemeter, where Dean Martin, Marilyn Monroe, and Natalie Wood are also buried. When I lay flowers at her gravesite, I'm going to tell her how much I truly and deeply miss her, that I idolized and admired her a lot, and that I'll see her again in the next life. No other actor of actress in Hollywood will ever take her place as my very favorite performer of all time.

Although Eva Gabor's gone, she's definitely not forgotten, especially by her biggest fan of all time. Wednesday marked the sixth anniversary of her death, and every July 4 since then, I pause for 74 seconds of silence (thats one second for each year that she lived on this earth) and then pray for the peace of her soul. I have the right to remember my very favorite actress and idol just as much as anybody else has the right to pay tribute to any other famous person whom they truly admired.

To me, EVA GABOR STILL LIVES!!!

Eb. When he appeared I knew I would be laughing. And he did everything with a straight face. At the start of one episode he was humming the theme song, looked at the camera and said (in Lisa's voice) "Dahling I love you but give me Park Avenue".

I never seen that but I could believe it. In one episode Lisa and Oliver were in bed and she woke up sat in bed and watch the opening credits! Hilarious stuff!
