  • Oliver Douglas and his first wife attacked by tumbleweeds several years before he marries Eva Gabor and moves to Green Acres.

    I had not seen this show since I was a teen. Though I respect the story concept, it made me snicker - the actors fending off tumbleweeds thrown at them by off camera stagehands then frog attacks..I mean..frog attacks??? The rocks were more weird and frightening and groups of snarling coyotes would have better than tumbleweeds and rubber frogs (though I understand it was probably to costly for coyotes). It was also obvious so much was done on a closed soundstage that I kept waiting for a crew member to accidently walk through the background The actors were fine, except June Havoc yelling "Andy!...Andy!" through the whole show. What about Eddie Albert telling Havoc he would give up the idea of becoming a farmer! This was before Green Acres, which made the line so funny to me (what a great parody it would make if the farmer had turned out to be Mr. Haney)!
