I always wondered why Aunt Bee's name is spelled B-E-E when her name is Beatrice. The common spelling I believe is B-E-A. Maybe it was from her boxing days where she was known to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.
I think it is because she is busy like a bee.
I wonder who cuts Floyd's hair?

I always wondered why the opening theme of the show was 2 steps higher than the closing theme.
I always wonder why Barney and Thelma Lou didn't stay in touch (or marry before his move to Raleigh). Even though I know they finally got hitched--just think of the years they wasted:(
