Mayberry Elsewhere

Not sure if this has already been discussed, but I thought it would be fun to see how or if TAGS pops up in other tv shows, movies, etc. This can include references to characters (such as Barney Fife), places (Floyd's Barbershop), or even Mayberry itself.

  • If we’re going with specific references to TAGS from other media, I can add the crossword puzzles from Tribune media.  “OPIE” is a relatively frequent answer, using various clues.  My favorite clue has been “Mayberry moppet”.

  • I believe the question is asking for specific references to the show itself, or characters from the show. For example: In the pilot episode of 'Mork & Mindy', which aired as an an episode of 'Happy Days', the TV in the Cunningham home is showing an episode of 'TAGS.'
    One of the oddest references to a Mayberry character I've come across is from Pink Floyd's, 'The Wall Album.' At the very beginning of the song, 'Nobody's Home', you can faintly hear dialogue from a 'Gomer Pyle-USMC' episode playing in the background.



  • In the Christian movie "Finding Normal", the lady doctor states "I'm stuck in Mayberry!"

    This topic has been posted before, but it was in the old forum. Perhaps the thread is still around somewhere here as many threads were transfered. Or maybe this was the thread with all the additional posts removed?
