What Mayberry characters do you wish you could have seen more of?

Ever have a favorite episode and say 'the casting director really nailed that one'? Like, who would have made a better Briscoe Darling than Denver Pyle? Or, a better mayor than Mayor Pike? Or a more crotchety old skin-flint than the original Ben Weaver? Many of the character actors in the series were spot on. And it seems like the very best of them only appeared in two or three episodes. So, who is it you wished you could have seen more of. Outside of the three above, I wish Lydia would have been in more episodes. Her dry personality contrasted so well with the regular characters I think they could have written her in, in half the episodes and added to the charm of the series. What do you think?

Shorty, you're just dying to hear that rumor going around about Myra. Sorry, but what happens in Mayberry stays in Mayberry.

You know me, the last thing I want is to spread gossip!!!

Dud, You are correct, I keep watching that episode thinking one day, Ben is going to be late to wave Andy and Ole Barn down and we can hear the rumor, but thus far, Ben is always on time?????

Okay... here you go. 

I heard it had something to do with that dish towel salesman that came through town last fall. Rumor has it, there was more than towel business going on if you know what I mean.

:O !!!!!  You mean....Bert Miller and her....and they....and then....WITH A TOWEL????   *faint*
