God's Gift of Humor: Green Acres TV Show

The best indication that God has a sense of humor is that He created us in His image (Genesis 1:27). People obviously are able to perceive and express humor. A “sense of humor” as defined by the dictionary as “...The ability to perceive, enjoy, or express what is comical or funny.” This of course is a human definition of humor so the problem is what people perceive as funny is very different from what would amuse a holy and perfect God. Much of what the world calls humor is not funny but is instead crass and crude and should have no part in a Christian’s thought life (Colossians 3:8). Our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus was fully human and is now a perfected Human at the Right Hand of the Father. He wept and showed anger and in his humanity and no doubt laughed with joy! - Andy

Where Did This Moon Rock Come From? - Green Acres

"Hank (Alvy Moore) and Oliver (Eddie Albert) discuss how an 11-year-old boy got his hands on a moon rock. Meanwhile, Arnold surprises Lisa (Eva Gabor) by talking to the rock. Season 5, Episode 23 Local boy Dinky Watson (Johnny Whitaker) has one heck of a story to tell anyone who will listen. When Dinky convinces Lisa to buy a "moon rock" for the considerable sum of $14, Oliver suspects that she is the victim of a practical joke." from video introduction.

"Sick of the complications of life in Manhattan, successful, wealthy attorney, Oliver Wendell Douglas buys a run down farm from con-man, Eustace Haney, much to his sophisticated Hungarian wife, Lisa's chagrin. When they arrive at the ramshackle place, Oliver and Lisa try to get used to the bizarre town of Hooterville while trying to make the shack home with the help of their humble but slightly slow hired hand, Eb. Ironically, Lisa is the one who makes friends with their cow, Eleanor, their chicken, Alice and Fred Ziffel's television-loving pet pig, Arnold who he treats like a son and seems to be smarter than the citizens in several ways.—PeggyLeigh McCook"

1. People thought a terrible fate befell Arnold the Pig

According to IMDb, there was a rumor that after the last episode of the series wrapped, the cast had a luau where they roasted and ate beloved pig/character Arnold the Pig a.k.a. Arnold Ziffel. Years later, star Tom Lester admitted that he made that rumor up. He would tell it to people because he was so tired of fans asking what happened to Arnold the Pig after the show ended. (However, more than one pig played Arnold throughout the series. What happened to the first couple of pigs may be a Hollywood secret.).. from the article:
