Green Acres was set in Hooterville, the same backdrop for Petticoat Junction (1963-1970) which occasionally crossed over its sister sitcom. Despite proving to be a ratings hit, staying in the top twenty for its first four seasons, Green Acres and another sister sitcom show, The Beverly Hillbillies were cancelled in 1971 in the CBS network's infamous "rural purge" - which attempted an attract a younger viewer demographic, as most viewers of the series were at least 40 years old.
