Lets not forget "A Face in the Crowd." That was a really good movie and a really memorable performance by Andy Griffith.

Very talented, and what a great show. Did you ever notice in Mayberry...nobody seemed to be married.

I loved that show. Andy was the calm center that held it all together. RIP
It struck me as I watched the video that Bill posted that Howard Morris looked a lot like Phil Collins. Weird.

The Andy Griffith show is in my top 5 all time favorite Television shows. It reminds me of a kinder period, wehre people worked hard for what they got, people cared for one another, and the streets were safe to walk at night.People cared about each other. Andy was able to capture the essence of the decade with this show and entertain at the same time.He had to fight type casting after this show through the 70's and played many roles as a villain. It is amazing to star in one hit show, but two ? He was the best.

While I was never a big fan of "the Andy Griffith show" or any of the "Mayberry" shows, Andy Griffith was a great actor and a class act.

A lot of talent on that show. Howard Morris (Earnest T.) was from The Bronx, NY. He sure could play a hick mountain man.

I still love to watch the re-runs. The comedy was the best of it's time and IMO, even today this show would be a hit sitcom.

Andy Griffith was about everything that today's Hollywood celebrities are not: Civility, wholesomeness, intelligence, and a positive influence on young kids.

He's from a bygone era. If I had young kids today, I would absolutely not have a television in my house.

Think about it, Andy wasn't married, nor Aunt Bee, Barney, Floyd, goober, Howard...I think the only one who was married was Emmet..of Emmets fix it shop.
Yes a great place to live.

I'm a huge fan of the show, I can honestly say that I'm pretty sure I've seen every episode. A couple favorites that come to mind are The exploding goat and Raif Hollister sings.

And Otis the drunk was married in the show.
