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 Possible Schwump Sighting?

Hello neighbors! This photo was recently posted on another TAGS page I frequent by a member watching an episode of 'Perry Mason' titled, 'The Case Of the Drowsy Mosquito.' I have to say the man on the right certainty resembles Mr. Schwump. As usual, the character played a wallflower and didn't speak so no screen credit was given. He appears to be wearing a toupee as well. I couldn't find the episode on YouTube to scrutinize it further. What are your 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.

What Did Gomer Do In The Marines?

One thing I noticed after Gomer finish boot camp and then his group was moved to another Marine Base what would Gomer have been assigned to do. I would have figured he would have asked to be assigned to the base motor pool since he worked at Walley's gas station in Mayberry. I would figure Gomer would leave the barricks head to the motor pool work his time then return to the barricks for the day.My father when he joined the Navy wanted to be a cook but they showed him a booklet of tools and he…

Disappearing Pencil

I noticed something recently, that if I have noticed it in the past, I have forgotten.  In the episode "Opie's Rival", Peggy comes into the courthouse and finds Opie.  She reaches and gets a pencil and proceeds to write a note for Andy.  She folds the note and lays the pencil down beside the note.  When the scene changes (and Opie begins to walk his black tennis shoes across the desk), we see the note, but the pencil has mysteriously vanished!  Curious - curious - curious...

sneaky stage manager

Something had caught my eye previously but I was able to confirm tonight that during the Butter & Egg Man/Aunt Bea gets a boyfriend episode, Andy is reading a copy of the Mt. Airy News when Aunt Bea, while washing the supper dishes, announces she has a date with Mr. Hendricks.  It is plainly visible as he has the paper folded in half with the front page facing the camera.  Pretty sneaky stuff.

"Just watched "Aunt Bee the Crusader".  Andy got pretty mad at Aunt Bee when she interfered in his handling of Mr. Frisbee's eviction."

This entry is long overdue so forgive my lateness. I wanted to say Thank You Mayberry. I can't remember the first time I watched the show, but I do know that I've been hooked ever since. Nothing gives me as much "pure" joy as this incredibly special…

"In Se.5 Ep.10 When Barney hits Otis with a tomato, it appears the scene has been edited and perhaps was shot more than once. Watch Otis's shirt."
