No help? I believe there were two such references but the one I watched was not the finest moment for the sheriff’s department in general. Of course, they proved themselves in the end.
Now I have it! That state inspector was involved. I know the episode but someone help me with the name.
You’re certainly heading in the right direction, Mayor.
Mayor and Bobby, you’ve teamed up to get it....that’s the one. And Andy never looked sillier with the dotted tie and turned-up fishing hat.
This could be one of several. I will propose my second choice. In “Goober Makes History” Goober is at the courthouse with a shotgun in a case looking much like this one as he is about to go on a two week hunting trip, during which time he grows the beard that suddenly transforms him into a genius. One of my favorite color episodes! But I have a feeling you are referencing a b/w episode, which I will leave for someone else to identify.
Even Al the bus driver saw Luke get off the bus with a shotgun. Your are correct Franklin, "High Noon in Mayberry."
I’m thinkin’ Gomer telling Mr. Tucker.....”She’ll take 8”.
