Eddie Albert passes on to green acres -- RIP

Eddie Albert, aka Oliver Wendell Douglas  Posted by Hello

It's been a hard week. First, Ernest T. Bass, and now Oliver Wendell Douglas.

I can't explain the television sitcom ("Green Acres") in which Eddie Albert starred more succinctly than The Catalog of Cool:

Eddie Albert (ostensibly sane) spent six seasons appealing to the whacked out citizens of Hooterville to behave in a rational and orderly manner. Naturally, he got just what he deserved--the gradual erosion of his own mental stability.

It was wonderfully funny. Kind of an American country Monty Python.

In a very weird way, this website transmits perfectly the "Green Acres" laugh-out-loud quirkness.
