(Below) Howard McNear in the Twilight Zone episode “Hocus Pocus and Frisby” with Andy Devine. I’ve often thought Andy Devine had a passing resemblance to An…"

James Murphy replied to rb's discussion interesting articles
"They certainly are interesting articles, albeit a touch cynical in tone. They seem to give the impression that both actresses were somewhat typecast perhaps, because of their roles in TAGS.

James Murphy replied to Jim Ochsner's discussion Return to Mayberry
"It’s only a silly technicality but Andy & Helen’s child didn’t arrive until the second season of Mayberry RFD, so maybe it didn’t exist in the world of TAGS. But then they weren't married until the first episode of Mayberry RFD, so it's a strange on…"

James Murphy replied to Jim Ochsner's discussion Return to Mayberry
"It’s very hard – virtually impossible – to recreate the “magic” of an old TV show favourite, but I think Return To Mayberry was about as good as it could possibly be. Almost the entire old cast was in it unlike a lot of other reunion-style programs.…"

I don't know if this is something that's not supposed to be talked about or not, but does anyone know what the story or premise was behind The New Andy Griffith Show? There’s an episode on YouTube (the first I think) and he’s supposed to be a mayor,…

"Don Knotts made an appearance in McHales Navy near the end of the show's run. The sixth-to-last episode, Little Red Riding Doctor (1966). He played a navy doctor (psychiatrist) investigating cases of battle fatigue, in typical Don Knotts style."
