Just noticed..."And" and "Ange"

 I think we all remember Barney calling Andy "Ange", short for Andy.  That even continued with Don was on Matlock.  I always thought he always called Andy that on TAGS.  But I'm watching on TV Land and it's "The Perfect Female", the episode where Thelma Lou's cousin comes to town and Barney and Thelma Lou try to set them up.  There's the shooting contest at the end.The scene where Barney is trying to get Andy to go to the coffee shop to meet the cousin, I hear him say "Hey And...." I've noted…

Those Gossipin' Men question

In this hilarious episode, the catalyst for the men believing that Wilbur Finch is a talent scout for Manhatten Showtime is the fact that "television is very important to him." However, nowhere in the episode that I can see do we ever find out the actual reason behind his urgency to find a tv. Any thoughts?

Identity of "Nice Dress Nellie" revealed

"Nice Dress Nellie" is an actress that appeared in at least 34 episodes of the show. (Mayberry Wiki article) "According to assistant director Bruce Bilson, her name is Marvel, but he did not give her full name. Marvel was a stand in for Don Knotts and Mr. Bilson picked her for the stand in job." (Mayberry Historical Society article)I think her name is probably Marvel Lawrence.I saw a comment on a MeTV article about Nice Dress Nellie where a poster named Jermyn said "I searched IMDB for someone…

  • Hmm...I don't think they ever were in a scene together.  I'll really have to think on this one but I believe you're right.

  • And speaking of Otis, I don't recall ever seeing Otis, Helen, and Thelma Lou ever in a scene together. Curious.

  • Sure has been quite here at the Barber Shop. :)

  • Thanks Don.  I hope everyone enjoys it.  The number of visits/posts here has been very low since the "upgrade" so I guess I'll have to wait and see if folks like it or not.  I'm glad you like it!

  • Nice work on the upgrade, Allan. Thanks for all you do!

  • James - Don't worry if you bring up something that's been talked about before. Everybody here watches reruns every day some we can handle talking about things again. Your perspective may very well add an insight that no one else has ever given. I certainly do look forward to seeing Australian articles and thoughts about Mayberry! 

  • The renovated site looks fine at my end, maybe it'll take a bit of getting used to. Unfortunately I'm not as big a contributor to the forum as I'd like to be because having only joined last year (a forum that's been running for many years) it's hard to come up with something new and/or original that hasn't been said and done many times already by others. I have 'contributed' a few screen grabs of TAGS people in other productions and have plenty more of them in my DVD collection, I've only scratched the surface really, so I may do a few more of those, even 'shock-horror' a few Jack Burns ones. Plus a couple of contemporary Australian newspaper articles about TAGS from 1961 when it premiered here, I may upload them as well. 

  • Hey ColHarV - I agree it'll take some time to get use to.  There are adjustments we can make to the layout, etc if that will help make things easier to adjust. This is the starting point I came up with but we can make it better.  I look forward to suggestions and we'll see what we can do. 


  • The site is a fresh look. It will take a little adjusting for some, but a welcome upgrade!

  • I hope everyone makes it here to the new site. I haven't seen anyone in town yet.

"In, 'The Big House' episode, when Barney takes Andy out to show him Gomer on the roof, look close just before the camera starts to pan up to Gomer and you can see a small object fall from the roof and bounce into the street."
