Wow! You must be a trained noticer!
...ever notice that the girl who organized the class reunion looked like Thelma Lou, and also that same girl came into Andy's house with all the other girls in 'A wife for Andy' ? Betty Lynn has very good acting skills.
Yes, I noticed Franklin. Played the character 'Floss' in the reunion episode. Did a good job with her.
I get tickled when Andy asks Barney where Thelma Lou went. Barney says: "Floss got a a hold of her"
no, the only person I think looks like Thelma Lou is Sharon deSpain...
I believe the actress your thinking of is Barbara Perry...
you're right. Now that you mention it Sharon DeSpain did look a lot like Thelma Lou.
I also think it's funny in the second reunion episode when Aunt Bee is looking over the names of the guests she reads "Sharon DeSpain" and says she remembers that name. Andy quickly says "we were in Civics Club together".
btw, Sharon deSpain was played by Peggy McCay
Lydia Crosswathe was sitting in the diner at a table with a white-haired man who could be her father in Earnest T. Joins The Army. It was when Barney ordered breakfast at the counter and then asked the fella next to him; who was reading the paper, to pass the sugar. It was Earnest T. and Barney arrested him.
In episode 1 the new house keeper, when Aunt Bee first comes into the house, there is a picture of a woman on the wall in the living room; must be Andy's wife.
