Synopsis by Hal Erickson
When the governor announces a 52 percent tax hike, the town of Hooterville secedes from the state. Cutting themselves off from their neighbors by sabotaging the bridge over the local swamp, the Hootervillians declare that they are subjects of an independent monarchy. Carrying the situation to its obvious conclusion, the locals select Oliver Douglas (Eddie Albert)as "King Oliver I" -- he won the crown, you see, because he "ate the margarine" (a reference to a then-popular TV ad). This was the final episode of Green Acres to be filmed, but not the final one shown.
