iMayberry Community

There were quite a few illnesses and injuries amongst the residents of Mayberry.  Some were chronic; others gone in a day or two.  Let's list some of those illnesses/injuries.  And, if you happen to know the remedy, throw that in here too!

In "Irresistible Andy," Ellie vows to go the picnic with the next man who walks through the drugstore door.  That turns out to be Deputy Barney Fife.  He's just coming into the drugstore to, "get some foot powder."  Thus we know that Barney has a problem with his feet.  Athlete's Foot hanging on from high school?  Remember, his short-lived newspaper column concerned "All the News from (something) and Pool."  Those locker room floors breed all kinds of pesky germs and funguses.

Barney suffers from a foot problem.  "Foot powder" seems to be the remedy.

And, at the same time, Aunt Bee suffers from PseudoBulbar Affect (uncontrollable crying). 

Nothing worse than her on a cryin' jag -- except maybe when she sets Barney off and he takes to whimperin'!

Darn women!

Aunt Bee, the doctor,  and many others in Mayberry suffered from Not A Spring Chicken Anymore.  I just caught that recently, myself.

I think I have NASCA too!

Barney had the hiccups. Darn near kept him off the force when they changed those physical requirements. 

Asa Bascomb had a pinched nerve in his neck. That's why he had to hang in that stretcher.

Ever notice that he shaved his moustache in that episode? In the other episodes, when he was known as Asa Breeney, he had a moustache.

Maybe he pinched his neck shaving off his 'stache?

Aunt Bee was feeling poorly...and Doc Adams told her the “She’s no spring chicken anymore.”

Those burly clients of Floyd's second chair barber had hair-cutting compelsions. Must of been hard on them.
