Granbys Green Acres

Granby's Green Acres is a radio situation comedy from the United States. It was broadcast on CBS July 3, 1950 – August 21, 1950, as a summer replacement for Lux Radio Theatre.

Granby's Green Acres featured a former banker "who knew little about farming and proved it every week".

Three of the main characters on Granby's Green Acres were much like those heard on many other situation comedies on radio: a husband, his "somewhat addled and impractical" wife, and "their breathless teenage daughter." Radio historian John Dunning wrote that the husband and wife were "inspired by characters heard on the Lucille Ball show, My Favorite Husband." In fact, radio regulars Gale Gordon and Bea Benaderet (who played John and Martha Granby) also played Mr. and Mrs. Atterbury on My Favorite Husband. Dunning noted, "The names were changed, but the basic characters remained the same.
