TV Fact #361 – October 19th, 2015:

Many people watched the show “Green Acres” (1965-1971) as much for Arnold the Pig as they did for the human cast. However, when the show ended a false rumor was going around that the “Green Acres” cast had a luau on the final day of filming and ate Arnold the Pig. But who started such a rumor and why?

In an interview for a TV Land Special, co-star Tom Lester, who played the character Ed Dawson, revealed that he made the story up himself. The reason he did this was because he got tired of people asking him whatever happened to Arnold the Pig.

So…I mean maybe Lester jumped the gun on that one a bit?
