Green Acres has an appeal for everyone. Those who have lived in the city all their lives will enjoy the thought of moving to the country to live simpler, more down to earth life. Those who live in small-town America will get a kick out of the shenanigans that go on in Hooterville (the imaginary town where Oliver and Lisa Douglas live).
Adjusting to country life is not as easy as it first appears to the Douglas family. Oliver is used to schedules and predictability. He finds neither in Hooterville. Surprisingly Lisa adjusts to farm life much better than her husband. She has a real knack for relating to the various characters that visit the "homestead" of the Douglas family.
Ultimately, the success of the show rests on its great characters. Each one plays a vital role in keeping Mr. Douglas on his toes and Mrs. Douglas from missing the city life of New York City. Need a break from the rat race? Visit Hooterville!
