Green Acres Theme Song (Excerpt)
Green Acres is the place to be
Farm livin’ is the life for me
Land spreadin’ out so far and wide
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside …

Green Acres

It’s the Place To Be!

Though decidedly corny today, Green Acres was a trail blazer in the 1960s. It was only the second television series to show a husband and wife sleeping in the same bed (Samantha and Darrin Stephens were the first sitcom couple to share a bed).

Moreover, the show’s distinctive theme song was the first to be sung by the stars of a television sitcom. He likes fresh air, she likes Times Square. He likes chores, she likes stores.

Goodbye, city life! Ultimately, Oliver Wendall Douglas prevails, and that’s how he and his glamorous wife Lisa end up in Hooterville for six seasons. Ironically, it is Lisa who adapts well to country life. Oliver, the only farmer to ride his tractor in a three-piece-suit, proves incapable of growing a thing.

Pat Buttram, who played the wily Mr. Haney, was quoted as saying “CBS canceled everything with a tree, including Lassie.”
