Miracle Salve

I wouldn't be surprised if this ad that appeared in comic books in the 50s, was the inspiration for the Miracle Salve episode. Notice the live pony premium. Cloverine Salve had over 300,000 children peddling their product door-to-door at one time.

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…

Here’s a thought....

Last night I mentioned that maybe Mr. Schwamp’s identity is buried deep in the CBS archives.  Well, I did a little bit of snooping and discovered that, in 2011 and 2012, Production Supervisor Ronald Jacobs donated all of his “papers” from his television career to the UCLA special collections library.  The bulk of this collection is listed as script files, and includes his time with TAGS.  According to IMDb, he was production supervisor for all of the 26 TAGS episodes listed for Mr. S. on the…

Trivia Question

I asked this some time ago and it was never answered so thought I'd throw it out there again. Who can identify the episode where a brief scene takes place inside Clara Edward's house yet Clara does not appear in the episode?

    I found this podcast with Stark Howell, Cort Howell and Greg Schell being interviewed about Mayberry Man. It's a good podcast so you may want to listen to all of it. I clipped out a section where they were talking specifically about me as Floyd, Rik Roberts as Barney and with mentions of other tribute artist in the Mayberry Man movie.   I hope you enjoy it and the movie when it releases. -- Allan

  • Welcome to Mayberry to all our newest townsfolks!

    We're glad to have you here with us. I hope you enjoy yourself here in town. -- Allan

  • 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.
