Anybody watch the marathon on TV Land over the weekend? I have to say, of all the "rural comedies" CBS had back in the '60s, this was the only one I liked...and that's because, unlike the other shows, this one came with a healthy dose of surrealism. For instance, one episode they showed this weekend had Mr. Ziffel outside Mr. Douglas' house, knocking on the front door. Mr. Ziffel has his back to us, and while he's knocking, the credit "Produced by..." literally flies onto the screen behind his back. He turns around, and the credit flies away, leaving Mr. Ziffel looking puzzled. As he knocks again, the credit "Written by..." flies onto the screen, and again, Mr. Ziffel turns around just after it flies off the screen. The third time, "Directed by..." appears, and Mr. Ziffel turns around really fast to catch it, but too late, it's gone. A co-worker told me the credits once appeared over Oliver and Lisa while they were sleeping. Lisa wakes up and reads them, then wakes up Oliver and asks, "Olivah...what is an Executive Producer?" Or how about whenever Mr. Douglas made one of his speeches, and people would comment on the musical accompaniment. ("He's done. You can stop playing the fife now.") I also liked all the junk Mr. Haney used to try to sell to Mr. Douglas. It's nice to have it back on TV Land. I'd forgotten how funny that show was.
