10/10. The funniest show on TV. No matter what Oliver needed Mr Haney would say, “I’ve got one on my truck!”

I watch "Green Acres" on TV every morning! It is so hilarious and never fails to leave me laughing out loud. Those who don't like it are likely people who don't get (or refuse to get) the warped humor that is present in every episode. You have to watch each episode from beginning to end or you might miss a key moment that shows up later on that becomes funnier the more you see it.

Arnold the pig is probably the smartest compared to his human counterparts. Also he's my favorite character in the show.
