In what is possibly the most self-referential episode in the entire Green Acres canon, the Hooterville Players decide to stage a charity production based on the TV series The Beverly Hillbillies. The casting is, to say the least, unorthodox: erudite Oliver Douglas (Eddie Albert) plays Jethro Bodine, indecisive agricultural agent Hank Kimball (Alvy Moore) appears as Jed Clampett, and the glamorous, sophisticated Lisa Douglas (Eva Gabor) tackles the role of Granny! (Is it really necessary to point out that Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres were produced by the same staff?)
