Trivia

Dr. Faber claims to have delivered Oliver Wendell Douglas, not a very plausible claim considering that the actors playing these roles were born in the same year (1906). See more »

Quotes

Oliver Wendell Douglas: [Chief Yellow Horse wants to buy Oliver's mother] That's out of the question, she's not for sale.
Chief Yellow Horse: Then how about young squaw? Give you four pigs and horse!

An excellent way to spend half an hour
9 February 2014 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

In my calculations, one of the best episodes of the series. A well-rounded farce with Oliver's (Eddie Albert) mother (Eleanor Audley) prescribed rest and relaxation. The city dweller has culture shock in moving to the country with her son, Oliver, and his wife Lisa (Eva Gabor) in Hooterville. She soon catches the eye of an Indian chief whose tribe have set up camp on the Douglas' farm as part of an annual ritual. Mr. Haney (Pat Buttram) aims to capitalize on the event and offers tours through the Douglas' home.

There are a good number of laughs with catchy transition music, good scenery and plot, and a excellent flow to the episode.
