One of the most beloved and enduring comedies to come out of the 1960s, The Andy Griffith Show aired for eight seasons, earning a devoted following of loyal viewers. The reason for its success was simple: genuine good humor, great writing and the comedic timing of its impressive cast.
The series revolved around the relationship between Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith), the sheriff of sleepy Mayberry, North Carolina, who has a heart of gold, rustic good humor and strong moral values and his son Opie (Ron Howard). Over the show’s long run, television viewers watched Opie grow from a small child into a teenager, under the watchful eyes of Andy and his Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier).
In the show’s portrayal of rustic Mayberry and its townspeople, the fine supporting cast included Andy’s deputy, Barney Fife (the hilarious Don Knotts), Goober (George Lindsey), Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors) and Otis Campbell (Hal Smith), the town drunkard, among others.
In its eight seasons on CBS, The Andy Griffith Show was nominated for more Emmys than any other comedy series, winning five of the prestigious awards, leading the Neilson ratings and exiting at the #1 spot.
This faithfully reproduced 2 DVD set brings you six of the most hilarious, heartwarming episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, from television’s Golden Age. In addition to the marvelous original cast, guest stars include Denver Pyle and the musical Dillard Family.
