This isn't really a booboo, but I thought it was suspicious.
In 'Barney and the Choir', the credits at the end list Ric Ricardi for choir arrangement. Many, if not all, of the episodes were filmed at Desilu Studios, yes? Desi Arnaz = Ricky Ricardo. What do you say, TAGS family?
I read that Ric Ricardi owned the night club (The Horn) which Andy and Don frequented, and where Jim Nabors was discovered. This is according to the book Mayberry Memories.
Was Nabors singing “Oh my Poppa”?
Either that or “Santa Lucia”.
Somewhere I got the idea that grown women don’t ride bicycles.....
That is incorrect. The arch in the background is across the side street from the courthouse. The Atlanta train station set was at the far end of the street through the Mayberry "downtown." A good resource on this, with lots of photographs is http://www.retroweb.com/40acres_desilu_years.html .
It's the compelsion, John.
