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?…

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."

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.

Susan Oliver was an incredibly talented actress and played each of her roles so well, no matter her character.If I had to pinpoint one episode as my favor, it would have to be Prisoner of Love.  What made it so was thecombination of Susan's character and the haunting music theme.  I've looked in many different places to try and find if the score was borrowed from somewhere or composed just for the show and this episode, no joy.  Does any know if the score is available somewhere besides the…

Floyd Colby & Floyd Lawson (history)

The information below is the backstory that Norm Schultz (seen as "Floyd #1 in the photo) and I (seen as Floyd #2 in photo) deleloped to retcon what we saw on episodes of The Andy Griffith Show to make it fit into continuity of Mayberry.  Floyd Colby  & Floyd Lawson (history) Colby and Lawson were partners at Floyds Barber Shop but Colby was the majority partner. That's why in “Mayberry Goes Hollywood” when the big time movie director came to town, the barber shop was named " Colby's Tonsorial…

Watch Mayberry Man yet?

We did. I was greatly impressed with our own Allan Newsome's part - top quality acting! For sure it was a bit of a quirky movie, but it was a must-see for Griffith fans. The impersonations of Floyd and Barney were brilliant and I loved the Goober and Gomer tribute artists as well! I loved how many of the lines were just lines grabbed from TAGS episodes. I really liked the ending!Now on Amazon for rental.

Another mystery woman?

Stop me if this has come up before, but I’m wondering if anyone can recall seeing this woman in other episodes.  In the first picture, she takes a prominent spot in “Barney’s Replacement”.  I’m not positive if that’s her in the second picture, walking in the background in “Barney on the Rebound”, but it sure looks like her.  She has a large purse in both appearances.  I’m pretty sure I’ve noticed her in at least one other episode, but I’m not sure which one(s).
