There are obviously some pretty smart members of this forum when it comes to Mayberry trivia. I thought of something that should challenge the most astute of you wise guys and gals. Lots of people where mentioned only once or twice and maybe never even shown but they had important roles in the script. How about we list the names of the more obscure characters of TAGS. One person could list one and the rest of us can try to guess who they are and what their role was.
If you answer one go ahead and leave one for the next person.
I'll start. Here are a few.
Who was old man Schlummer?
Who was Shorty?
Who was Buckley?
Who was Colonel Chumley?
Buckley was the sheriff before Andy
C'mon people... Colonel Chumley.... Think Edmond Wyke... England.
Who was Karen Burgess?
Don't know if anyone has mentioned Hasty Burford yet.
He sat round with Dud Wash drinking hard cider and punchin each other in the arm and hollerin flinch. And they wouldn't come back till wensday weak.
Karen Burgess was Opie's girlfriend. She played hard to get at first. Then they went bike riding and then to the movies to watch the shootemup or to have icecream sodas at the drug store I'm pretty sure.
Augusta Finch...just up and passed on...and she was exactly Aunt Bee's age. Obscure because as Andy stated' "Augusta always enjoyed poor health as long as I can remember."
Who was Vicki Harms?
Yes, she would bite a hole in the bottom and suck out all the syrup, leaving young Barney with a cone of dripping ice shavings.
That makes me sad every time I hear it.
