15 behind-the-scenes photos from Green Acres that prove making the show was a wild time

The classic sitcom Green Acres is one of those shows that could only be made in the late 1960s but is also timeless in its inane genius. The ridiculous tone and fantastical elements weren’t that out of the ordinary during the time of I Dream of Jeannie and Lost in Space, but the meta, fourth-wall-breaking gags give it the feel of something that could be made today.

If the episodes are anything to go by, the antics off-camera must have been wild. The amount of hilarious actors, wacky situations and animal costars surely made for a crazy filming experience.

Here are 15 rarely seen behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Green Acres, courtesy of the Everett Collection. Not surprisingly, Arnold the pig steals the show!
