What episode?

Well, Mayor, I gotta tell ya; Iv’e been stumped and I’ve been stumped but this one takes the cake. I have no recollection of a hot air balloon being mentioned in any episode, but I expect I will be learning it.  As far as I’m concerned it might as well be Al Becker piloting that balloon with Count I. Teleky as a passenger and they are both  up there checking the atmosphere for hexin qualities.  

Has it something to do with someone being filled with hot air?

Hint: Barney is in the balloon, all alone. Or you might even say Barney is the balloon (that’s a figure of speech). And since this is a B/W balloon, it is from a B/W episode.

I only recall 2 instances where balloons are mentioned at all. One comes from Ralph the Councilman in “The Mayberry Band,” when he presents a motion to use balloons at the Apricot Blossom Festival even though “balloons are so doggone commonplace at apricot festivals.”  The other comes from Opie in “Merchant of Mayberry” when he tells Andy Weaver’s department store is giving things away; “ain’t just stuff, it’s valuable, I’ll show ya - see - Balloons!”

Barney, going up, up, and away. . . without her. (Season 1)

Wow! This was a tough one, but I’m surprised it didn’t come to mind sooner.  It’s from “Cyrano Andy” when Ole Barn tries to woo Ellie. She laughs off his advances and he says “You had your chance to fly with me but you wasn’t woman enough. Now the balloon’s going up without you.”

You got it!

Barney: "Well we aughta' make im' blow up a balloon or something."

Andy: "We ain't even got any balloons."

What episode did I just watch?

My first guess would be Barney’s Bloodhound, but something tells me there is some deeper meaning to the picture you posted.

This must be from “The Guitar Player” when Andy compliments Jim Lindsey’s guitar playing by comparing him to “that fella we see every now and then on television. A shakin’ and a squeemin’, like somebody’s beatin’ his dog!”
