Great show for all ages!

....I have all the Green Acres episodes! They are great family entertainment and I recommend them for any age kid and those young at heart! The "spoken" comedy is sometimes a little "difficult" for the younger audience (2-7) but the "action" comedy gets everyone laughing. Even those with limited English get a "kick" out of the show and almost EVERYONE will love Arnold the pig! He actually had the most fan mail too when originally aired so that tells you something! There are I believe only 3 references to what someone may consider offensive and perhaps 5 "other" adult humor references but they are in and of themselves very hard to find and/or notice! I only recognized them as watching the show since the 70s and seeing everyone episode at least over 100 times I know every little nuance of the series! The show also informs aspects of behavior as in manners and responsibility in a very good way if you interact with your children while watching and questions arise as to certain behaviors which is just great!
