OK...Let's find the stuff that may not be so obvious, and the ones that make you think, "Hey, I never noticed that before." and post them for all to now be able to notice.

Post the Episode and the thing you noticed.  See my first post as an example.

What always bugged me was how Aunt Bee left Opie home alone at night when she joined Andy and Barney at the town dump looking for trashed copies of Opie's newspaper. 

The song played by Jerry Miller, "The Banjo Playing Deputy" was China Town. The same one sung by Aunt Bee played after Col. Harvey sold her some Elixir.

Apparently, the idea of "China Town" was fascinating to the citizens of TAGS.  Remember how Andy would say, of a person who was really dressed up and looking good, "He/she looks good enough to take to China Town."

"China Town, My China Town..."  (notes surrounding and piano bench twirling round)

Aunt Bee also sang it in the episode where she dated the retired congressman.

Have you ever noticed that the squad car always looks dull even though it was brand new?  I read that they sanded the paint to keep the car's finish from reflecting images back into the camera.

I would believe that Dud. I read that you had to wash your white shirts in coffee to dull it up or else it would be to bright. I'm sure there are lots of tricks they used in the film industry through out all the B&W years of movies and TV to balance the contracts of black and white.

I read about the days of early TV: the women wore back lipstick to mimic red. This may be way before the time of TAGS, but I thought it was interesting (creepy).

And that's how the goth movement got started

Dud, I've noticed that.  Even in the first show when Andy was polishing it when Barn came to deliver a message. 

For all of us old guys that can remember back to the mid-fifties most cars seen on TV had the windows removed.  Remember in the Make Room for Daddy/Danny Tomas Show when Danny was arrested in Mayberry, the squad car did not have a windshield. 

I guess Andy was riding down the road, wind in his face, and with his tongue on the roof of his mouth, trying top pronounce words that started with the letter "S."

Barney at least made a few attempts to keep it clean...but never polished. Haha.
Episode: The Cow Thief

BARNEY: I'm sorry about the squad car Mr. Upchurch...I didn't have time to get it "warshed."

Wonder where Barney got it warshed when he did have time?  I'm trying to remember--did we ever see the patrol car getting a bath in all the years we watched TAGS?  I can't remember it if we did.  And I been thankin' and thankin (under here--got my bucket on).
