I was born and raised in North Carolina where Andy and the whole Mayberry ideal was iconic. Grew up in a small town not unlike a Mayberry, just not as idyllic but we did go fishing a WHOLE lot. Even though Mayberry was fiction, so many people wanted to live in that type of community and world. Sez something don't it!
There were none better a comedy duo than Don Knotts and Andy Griffith. Both will be missed but thank goodness we got re-runs. And YouTube!
"No Time For Sergeants" is one of my favorite movies.
Andy Griffith Football Story from 1953 - YouTube
The Andy Griffith Show - YouTube
R.I.P. Andy -------I still watch the reruns and enjoy them as much now as when they were first aired.
We have Andy Griffith and his Mayberry friends hanging all around our house.
My wife has watched every episode at least 3 times.
We visited his museum in 2010 and that was cool.
He still lives on in the recordings of his shows and broadcasts.
Not often, but I say, I do say...this cartoon made me feel good and sad all at once.
1977 Andy Griffith Ritz Cracker Commercial - YouTube
" stand up Irving I means to bust you up some"
The best part for me was when Will Stockdale was being punished, cleaning the latrine and he made "pop-up seats and was proud as a peacock !!
No Time For Sergeants - Toilet Salute - YouTube
The youngster saluting the brass is Nick Adams......he played The Rebel on the TV series.
He was a PLO permanant latrine orderly
Andy Griffith filmed a movie in my hometown many years ago,and he was an ASS in person. He was very rude to any fans or autograph seekers,and used very profane language in public with small kids around. After seeing his tantrums in public a few times it REALLY changed my opinion of him
Was this the movie shot near the old covered bridge in South Cobb County? I grew up in that area.
I like the Don Knotts/Andy Griffith combo, they were great together. They first worked in "No Time For Sergeants". Mayberry was never the same when Barney Fife left and they started filming in color.
the movie was Murder in Coweta County and much if it was filmed in Griffin. Several of us skipped School on several days and hung out by the sets
So you were that brat that kept bothering Andy!
aj covered this one in post #10.
