  • Starring: Andy Griffith, Andy Griffith, Don Knotts
  • Summary: The Andy Griffith Show is definitely a TV classic. It ran from 1960 to 1968, producing 249 episodes.The main character, Andy (Andy Griffith), was a widowed father of the polite little boy named Opie (Ron Howard) and is a sheriff, who works with nervous and very suspecting Barney Fife (Don Knotts). They all live in the nice southern town of Mayberry. But, Mayberry can get a little dangerous when the town drunk Otis Campbell (Hal Smith) is on the loose. Thelma Lou (Betty Lynn) is Barney's sweetheart, although Andy had to help him describe his feelings to her. Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier) is the very loving and caring, but stern housekeeper for Andy and Opie. Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors) is the bone-head, thoughtless, but humorous character. He is a gas attendant. Goober Pyle (George Lindsey) is Gomer Pyle's cousin. They are very alike, you could say, and arrives in Mayberry when Gomer decides to enlist in the United States Marine Core. The show had two spin-offs: Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. and Mayberry R.F.D.Top 20 Ratings:

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is my favorite TV show of all time, it's great you really should watch it. I love watching Barney run someone in on j-walking or Goober take apart a car and put it back together again. Expand

    Andy Griffith. An icon. A pioneer of modern TV classics. And a wonderful smile. And now, he's gone. Of all the great memories, he showed us how funnier "The Andy Griffith Show" really is and was. It reminded me of a young Ron Howard (before he was an Oscar-winning director) and Don Knotts. But I love the show and Andy, I had an incredible time watching every season and some hilarious moments. Thanks, Andy! Your my best friend. Rest in Peace. Expand
