Mayberry Man

We watched Mayberry Man a while back. It was a great movie... reminded me of the Danny Thomas Show that Andy Griffith first appeared on. I remember watching this show as a young girl. I even ordered the DVD so my son could watch it. We have all 8 seasons of TAGS, Return to Mayberry and 3 or 4 of Andy's movies and a lot of Don Knott's movies as well.

Watch Mayberry Man yet?

We did. I was greatly impressed with our own Allan Newsome's part - top quality acting! For sure it was a bit of a quirky movie, but it was a must-see for Griffith fans. The impersonations of Floyd and Barney were brilliant and I loved the Goober and Gomer tribute artists as well! I loved how many of the lines were just lines grabbed from TAGS episodes. I really liked the ending!Now on Amazon for rental.

ya'll probably know this, but today I found out

the same actress played Big Maude the escaped convict and Eleanora Poultice, Barney's voice teacher.  Reta Shaw must have been one heck of an actress.  After all these decades of watching the show and reading all the trivia, I was shocked to find she could play two such different roles and me not know it.Also play Mrs. Halcyon Maxwell in the Ghost And Mr. Chicken.

Angry Andy

i was talking with someone about TAGS and came around to how rarely Andy got really mad in the black and white episodes.  We each came up with an example of Andy’s b&w anger.  One was in season 5, Man in the Middle when Andy told Barney not to call Helen a dame.  The other was in season 3, Barney Mends a Broken Heart, when Andy got mad at Peggy when her friend Don (the hungry buzzard) dropped in unexpectedly.  I have since thought of a third one, which I’ll hold back for now.  Are there more?…

Another mystery woman?

Stop me if this has come up before, but I’m wondering if anyone can recall seeing this woman in other episodes.  In the first picture, she takes a prominent spot in “Barney’s Replacement”.  I’m not positive if that’s her in the second picture, walking in the background in “Barney on the Rebound”, but it sure looks like her.  She has a large purse in both appearances.  I’m pretty sure I’ve noticed her in at least one other episode, but I’m not sure which one(s).

Dr. Pendyke replied to Al Becker's discussion Mayberry sightings
"I probably did too, as she had a distinctive voice and was hardly recognizable at the  start of the episode. She did  a lot of
TV at that time. I think she  might have been  in another episode of Perry Mason.  "

"You are correct, sir.  I actually recognized her first by her wonderful voice."
Dr. Pendyke replied to Al Becker's discussion Mayberry sightings
"I believe that is  a heavily disguised Joanna Moore, aka nurse  Peggy.  "
Bernie Fife replied to Al Becker's discussion Mayberry sightings
"One of my favorite things about watching the old Perry Mason tv episodes is looking for people that also had roles in TAGS.  Some episodes have as any as three or four.  Here’s one that I didn’t notice for awhile....who’s that lady?"
Franklin Dickerson replied to ColHarV's discussion Have YOU ever NOTICED?
"No I didn't Col, but that sure gives me an excuse to go and look! That's one of my favorite episodes. There's a sign near the back door of the store that says Be sure to feed the kitty, and there is a detective game among the items of stuff in the…"
Franklin Dickerson replied to ColHarV's discussion WHO said that?
"The same guy who said:"I'm gonna call the Plant and take my sick-leave now."   
Uncle Ollie."
ColHarV replied to ColHarV's discussion Have YOU ever NOTICED?
"Have you ever noticed that the same actress that played the little old lady shoplifter, also played Annabelle Silby? Her name was Laurene Tuttle."
ColHarV replied to ColHarV's discussion WHO said that?
"You see...in the city, you got all that stop and go driving!
Who said that?"
