Convicts at Large

This is a great episode, it's the one with three female convicts. But but but I'm still wondering about when Charles O'Malley (William Bouchey) returns on the bus from "DE-troit."  Andy offers him a ride back to his place, and he accepts. If it weren't for Andy, how was O'Malley getting back home? He obviously did not ALREADY have a ride, or he'd have told Andy.Changing the subject, In "Manhunt," Barney's mother is listed in the cast, see for yourself, follow this…

The color episodes

I've never liked them much.  I bought the DVD box set for the first 5 seasons but wasn't interested in the last 3.Don Knotts and Jim Nabors was gone, the new characters like Warren, Emmet and Howard just weren't funny to me, poor Floyd had had the stroke, and Andy seem irritated by everyone.  There wasn't the fun picking on Barney, and the true friendship between those two with any other characters.  This is nothing new to many TAGS fans.Today, TV Land got to the end of season 5 and started…

Hoyt Axton

On Monday 11-23-20 Kitty and I were traveling listening to Sirius Radio "60s on 6".  The morning DJ played a Hoyt Axton song.  After the song he mentioned what a fan of TAGS he was and that the evening before he had watched the episode where Hoyt Axton appeared.  I can not recall Hoyt Axton in any TAGS episode.  Does anyone know?

6 7/8

I always assumed that the "pulling out the hat size" bit was originally written for TAGS but I came across it recently in a book of humorous stories compiled by Bennett ('What's My Line?') Cerf published in 1955. It was told about a Broadway stage actor fallen on hard times who was too proud to accept charity from his friends so they rigged a cash door prize at a Christmas party he was attending by placing identical numbers in the hat and....well, you know the rest.

Question For Allen

Hey Allen. When I post a picture, I usually put a caption or description underneath it. After the post is published, the text is unformatted and displayed off to the side of the picture. Everything looks fine while composing. See my post in Mayor Pike's disscusion, 'Favorite Gomer Pyle Episodes' for an example. I wonder what causes that?

  • Otis, Helen and Thelma Lou were almost in a scene together in “Return of the Fun Girls.”  Helen and Thelma Lou showed up at the courthouse minutes after Barney had thrown the ‘chubby drunk’ out.

  • 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 totally agree! This might just be because Barney is my favorite character, but I never watch the new episodes. (No offense to the actor and he is very talented) Warren could never replace Barney. I have watched some and they are just not the same!…"

"IMDB (they're real, real good about this kind of thing) says Hoyt was never on TAGS.  Could be something misheard by Shorty or a mistake by the DJ.  Hoyt was on WKRP though, great episode."
