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.

That was mighty curious Shorty!

They had some sophisticated electronics. They had tiny walkie-talkies that would automatically listen and then allow one to speak when stuffed under the collar of a large shaggy dog. (Man's Best Friend).

Have you noticed that when one enters the front door of the Courthouse, to the left in the corner of the room sometimes there is a heater in the corner, and other times there is a door. 

Ever notice in some car scenes when they are getting in or out of the car the person will slide across the seat using the passenger door instead of using the drivers door.

Yep. I think that's because of the way they filmed the show with just one camera...it made it easier to keep the camera in one place and have the actors come to the camera, rather than the camera having to "chase" the actors.

That's what I thought to ColHarv. Also some scenes where 2 actors are in the front seat you'll notice they sit close together for a tighter shot. (A 2-shot)

That wasn't too unusual in the days when almost every car had a bench seat, Dave.  Way better than bucket seats, imho.  With a bench seat, your girl could sit right next to you.

And the shift lever out of the way on the steering column.

Ep:  Man in a Hurry...and...My Fair Ernest T. Bass

At the4 scene where Mr. Tucker and Andy go see Wally on his front porch about getting his car fixed on Sunday...and where Ernest T. and "Romeena" Ancrum run around the yard and leap-frog over the log...check it out.  Same log.  Same house.  I guess Wally lived right near Mrs. Wiley.

These are great, aren't they?  Mason, you have a very good point about the "vanishing" dividend checks.  Those investors were earning excellent dividends on their investments.  Seems like we should have seen some high livin' instead of all the frugal actions and comments we got from many of them.  As you so wisely pointed out--especially Barn.

As to the magical "lamp-turning-into-globe," Keevy.  Hate to say this, but I'm wondering if Otis, being gassed, could have thrown out his arm and broken the lamp?  Maybe that was why Aunt Bee  was loaded for bear!  Possibly she substituted a less-likely-to-be-broken globe in place of her fragile gee-gaws?

As to the log, Col., I'm thinking there's a type of tree, unique to the Mayberry area, called "The Leaning Tree."  These trees grow in profusion and are greatly valued by their owners, as their stumps make great scenery when viewed from the front porch area, and they're the best ever for leap-frogging.

If you don't believe me,

Ask Ernest T!

I read in an interview with Jackie "Sweet Romeena" Joseph, that during the first take of the leapfrog scene, her dress caught on the stump and pulled her back against it, injuring her back.

Always interesting to know the "back stories." Thanks Keevy.
