Was just watching Mayberry Goes Hollywood the other day, and something one of the characters said struck me. When they are having the ceremony when the movie producer comes to town, I believe Mayor Pike makes a reference to his daughter Juanita. Could this be the same Juanita from the Bluebird Diner who is also Barney's girl?
You raise a good point. Interestingly, your favorite mayor has another daughter, Josephine. Both bear a striking resemblance to Mayberry socialite Lydia Crosswaithe!
But according to the source https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053479/trivia and https://mayberry.fandom.com/wiki/Juanita_Beasley , Barney’s Juanita has last name Beasley. And this opens another can of worms - was not Goober once referred to as Goober Beasley?
That is what makes you such a good Mayor, You think for yourself. You are correct, early on, Goober was referred to as Goober Beasley. Could he be Nita, Juanita's brother????
There was another Beasley. In “Irresistible Andy” the one flexing his muscles for Ellie was Charlie Beasley.
