Allan Melvin same character/different name?

Watching the color episode where Allan is again, a bully. This time picking on poor Howard as he tries to court Millie. I got to wondering if Allan ever got tired of playing the same role on TAGS.…Continue

Scared Straight ?

Started this discussion. Last reply by ColHarV Dec 6, 2016. 6 Replies

Just dawned on me that "One Punch Opie" featured Mayberry's version of Scared Straight. Even mentioning no more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. That's really scary.Continue

"Compared to Andy's running in place thing, she looked like a dancer on Soul Train. You can take the girl out of KC, but you can't take KC out of the girl."

"There were two episodes. One where Opie learns to dance and the other when Howard has his swing'n singles party, complete with bear-skin rug.  I like the scene where Goober literally drags her along since Howard and Goober have worn her…"

"I will give it a shot, no cheating: 1. Plays the escape prisoner with dog hair on his suit. 2. Fred Plummer the angry street sweeper. 3. Is the escapee when Andy goes on vacation. 3. Is the house detective in the big city. 4. Is the Army recruiter.…"

"Somebody posed a trivia question to me the other day: Allan Melvin appeared in 8 different episodes of TAGS as 8 different characters.  Can you name each episode without cheating (ie google, or the discs)  I only got 6, but when I heard…"

Mayor Pike replied to SWFLguy's discussion Allan Melvin same character/different name?
"In one episode he was a house detective (Andy and Barney in the Big City). In another episode he was an army recruiting officer (Ernest T Bass Joins the Army). But otherwise, he was the wise-guy bad-guy."

Watching the color episode where Allan is again, a bully. This time picking on poor Howard as he tries to court Millie. I got to wondering if Allan ever got tired of playing the same role on TAGS. Seems like on other shows he was a "good" guy. Just an observation and thought.See More

Mayor Pike replied to SWFLguy's discussion Scared Straight ?
"Those TWO rules of Barney's Big House, combined with hourly "shake downs", can create a scare. But what really gets them is "Bloody Mary's Work Farm", i.e. Aunt Bee's hard labor camp."

SWFLguy replied to ColHarV's discussion Have YOU ever NOTICED?
"I guess when you've seen an episode a dozen times or more, you begin to notice those little goofs in continuity. Mainly because they either didn't care about it, or it just slipped by. Probably the former, given time restraints for…"

peanut butter and jelly sandwiches

There are several instances where Leon shows up eating a PB&J sandwich and offering it to others. Also the bit where Barney was lecturing the young boys that how being in jail there would be no PB & J. I wonder if this was something reflecting a favorite of Any himself or Don Knotts. We will probably never know the real reason for so many references. Add that to the mysteries like the identity of Mr. Schwump. BTW--did Andy's autobiography ever get to market and if not---why not?See More
