A New York City attorney and his wife attempt to live as genteel farmers in the bizarre community of Hooterville.
Took place in the same fictional universe as The Beverly Hillbillies (1962) and Petticoat Junction (1963). Characters from the latter series often appeared on this show and vice-versa.
Eustace Charleton Haney:
These are gen-yew-wine Siamese Catfish.
Oliver Wendell Douglass: SIAMESE CATFISH?
Eustace Charleton Haney: Well, they're still in the pussy stage.
In the opening song when Oliver sings "You are my wife," he reaches for Lisa with his left hand. As Lisa sings "Goodbye city life," Oliver reaches in and grabs her with his right hand.
In some episodes, the opening credits appear in unusual locations (e.g.: chicken eggs, towels, writing on walls, newspaper headlines). In other episodes, the characters - particularly Lisa - react to the appearance of the credits. These occurred as Eddie Albert & Eva Gabor', were singing their comical solo lyrics.
