It's "TV name" was Hoyt-Clagwell.

 

When the show first aired, it was a JD GP. But, when Ford became the major sponsor, they started using a Fordson model F.

O-B wins the prize. Every good tractor collector knows it's a Hoyt Clagwell

 

PS: Ken, what was the prize??

Yes, that's right. The pig had a last name -Ziffel. I didn't watch that show much. I was pretty young when it came on the first time and missed the reruns.

Thanks for the post Ken. It made for interesting reading. I'm old enough to have seen this show when it first ran. It was part of the CBS country line up. It ran along with The Beverly Hillbillies and Petticoat Junction. As I recall, all were still doing well in the ratings but CBS decided it didn't like the image it gave the network. I guess they never checked to realize a lot of folks live in rural America and not just in the big city.

 Last year Green Acres was airing in the morning on a local station. I turned it on one morning while the granddaughter and I were waiting for the school bus. To my amazement she loved the show. Before the station changed their schedule we watched every morning. Lilly and I even sang the theme song while standing at the bus stop.
