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…

Andy Griffith's Food Co.

I've been searching for years for a picture of one of Andy Griffith's restaurants and this photo from a newspaper advertisement is all I've been able to locate. Started in 1972, the chain specialized in fried chicken and barbecue and eventually had seven locations in North and South Carolina but by 1975, all had been closed. The retail food products division was also unsuccessful.

  • 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!

"Not quite 2 years old at the time. Guess I don't remember that first episode!  Actually, we did not have a TV until I was about 5 so we missed a lot of the first run BW shows. And the TV we had when I was 5 was one my older brother built - you…"

The 60th anniversary of the debut is this Saturday, but TV Land is going to be celebrating with marathons starting next Monday.  They'll also be showing some interviews with some of the stars.  Good to see TAGS being celebrated this way, even after…

"In one episode of The Rifleman, he showed up as The Shotgun Man. Of course, you know what happened in that matchup.

"I took a spin through his credits.  It seems he made an appearance in just about every TV western of the 50s and the 60s."
