oh no. I saw that episode Andy Griffith- Aunt Bea came home to clean house & was devastated! Love her much to do that to her
"You know, somehow it's hard to interrupt a man with a beard." - Aunt Bee from the Andy Griffith Show. Sorry struck me funny!
I think a little Andy Griffith would be good therapy right about...now.
Did you like Aunt Bea on Andy Griffith Show? Me too Join me on pinterest to share ideas
did you ever see the pickle episode of the Andy Griffith Show? Aunt Bea sucked at brining.
How can I go to work at the Student Store when a classic Andy Griffith is on.Love me some Andy!:) Opie too!! and that bumbling dufus Barney Fife.Aunt Bea...the list is long.Goober and The Shazam guy.forgot his name.
Aunt Bea from Andy Griffith Show: Death On November 22, 1989, Bavier was admitted to Chatham Hospital. She was suffering from both heart disease and cancer and was kept in the coronary care unit for two weeks. She was discharged on December 4, 1989, and died at her home two days later of a heart attack. Bavier is interred at Oakwood Cemetery in Siler City. Her headstone includes the name of her most famous role, "Aunt Bee" and reads, "To live in the hearts of those left behind is not to die."
I was trying to put into words what my hometown means to me. I thought perhaps, if I could capture a little something special, I’d share it with you. Hopefully, some of you who read this will feel as I do about the place we all call home. Sincerely, Lynn White. I was raised in the encompassing arms of a very special cocoon. The longer I live, the more I realize how lucky I am to have been raised in Bethel. Sometimes I tell others where I’m from and paint a descriptive picture of the area I call home. A friend laughed once and said to me, “You make it sound like Norman Rockwell painted scenes from your hometown.” I thought a couple of seconds and replied, “He very well could have been painting Bethel.” Do you remember the Andy Griffith Show where Aunt Bea and Clara Edwards wrote a song called “My Hometown?” The song went, “My hometown is the greatest place I know. Where the neighbors I find, are gentle and kind, and the livin’ easy and slow. My hometown, is the only place to be. Here .. ...
I love Andy Griffith but I loathe Aunt Bea. What a pain in the *** ..
For any of you fans of the old Andy Griffith Show, it's interesting to know that the name of Mayberry was actually Newtown until they changed it. I guess the sheriff without a gun must have moved out. It's too bad Sheriff Taylor can't run the FBI or DEA or CIA without a gun. He we such a nice cop. Under today's police attitude Otis the drunk would be doing 20 years as a three time loser. Barney would be weighing in at 300 lbs., and Aunt Bea would be selling overpriced stale bologna to the prisoners, and tapping their cells. There would be X rays and full cavity searches for Earnest T Bass, followed by some heavy meds, administered by debt slaves, who would try to con vict him he was the loser, who would then leave their professional status and go forth merrily telling everyone to buy a gun, so they could have a job patching them up and re finance fencing them. Mayberry is still Newtown I guess. Maybe they could use a new school building, try making one like the olde amphitheaters of Greece. So if a gunman ...
What a beautiful sunny warm day here in North Carolina ! Believe it was near 60 degrees .. no jackets while the sun was out ! Wonderful drive back to Mount Airy, NC ..YES that is Mayberry RFD ..to the world, home of Andy Griffith and Aunt Bea, Opie and Barney.. and I am sure there are a few more souls that actually live there now.. Lol ...have found an antiques and "stuff" shop there, owned by the most engaging couple! Found a few new treasures.
Spent the last two days in West Virginia for work, absolutely gorgeous scenery. Drove through Mt Airy on the way home (Andy Griffith birthplace) and actually saw a vintage police car drive by just like in Mayberry. Then stopped in Pilot Mountain (Mt. Pilot in the tv show) and picked up dinner at 'Aunt Bea's' restaurant . Love nostalgic traveling. :)
So im watching black cauldron...which *** but it has good artwork and animation, and i got to think.what movie should i watch next? and i realized.i only own like.3 animated movies that are my favorites! so i compiled a list of movies i need on either dvd or VHS.because VHS still rocks...so does betamax! so without further ado.my Top Ten animated films. 10- Sleeping Beauty: Ok, before you ask for my man card.let me point this out. [link= You're arguement is invalid. also it has the woman who played Aunt Bea from the Andy Griffith Show.and everything about that show is pure freaking american. That and maleficient turns into a F*** MOTHERING DRAGON!!! thats awesome! and she unleashes the powers of *** unto that stupid 15 lines of dialouge prince...no really she actually says 'Powers of *** . SHES A WALKING METAL SONG! first disney curse word. Plus the animation really gets the soft spnge brush/flat view of middle age painting and art work. Good film. 9- The brave Little Toaster If you havent seen this f . ...
Jesus Christ, has the best phone customer service ever. It was like talking to a 25 year old Aunt Bea from the Andy Griffith Show.
I am a fan of Andy Griffith Show. I would like to move there. In all those years it was never cold or hot. Never rains. And I bet aunt Bea can cook up some mean Fried Chicken.
The whole debate, Candy Crowley was like Andy Griffith's Aunt Bea, then on Libya she jumps in like Ronnie Lott on a blitz.
In third grade in Mrs. Eddington's (she looked like Aunt Bea on the Andy Griffith Show) class I remember standing every day with our hands over our hearts saying thr Pledge of Allegiance. In no way did it do harm to me nor cause injury! What harm has our flag done -the real one with true red and white STRIPES not waves and the bright stars in the corner. Keep the true design flags representing a true America! God Bless America!
Maybe you're a fan of the Andy Griffith Show and if so, you may remember an episode when Aunt Bea ran for town council against opponent Howard Sprague. After much thought, I've come to the conclusion President Obama resembled Aunt Bea to a "T" during the last debate, as she didn't know what she was talking about either. The difference between the two? Aunt Bea backed down to her competition when she realized she wasn't the right person for the job! The moral to the story?. I guess Aunt Bea was more of a man than President Obama.
Very first episode of "The Andy Griffith Show" on right now on TVLand. Best ever. Opie is so sweet and Aunt Bea, well gotta love her.
Just got through watching the Andy Griffith Show where Aunt Bea first came to live w/ Andy and Opie. So touching!!
Just watching a 1960 Andy Griffith Show, a guy was playing music on the street, went to jail for dostrubing the pease? (spelling) I got C.R.S. Aunt Bea bought the guy lunch, Andy pours his coffee and pours one for himself, from a coffee pot and china cups, then Andy sits and talks to the guy in jail, and the jail gate was not even locked..LOL boy, where those the days!
"And if your Aunt Bea is the one you love, love Andy Griffith. Love Andy Griffith." - Crosby, Stills, Nash and Fife.
today in 1960: The Andy Griffith Show premiered on CBS-TV. It was about a sheriff and his deputy in a town with no crime. It starred Andy Griffith as Andy, Don Knotts as Barney, Ronny Howard as Opie, Frances Bavier as Aunt Bea, Jim Nabors as Gomer, Anita Corsaut as Helen, George Lindsey as Goober, Howard McNear as Floyd, Hal Smith as Otis, Jack Dodson as Howard, Paul Hartman as Emmett, Betty Lynn as Th///elma Lou, and Hope Summers as Clara. It lasted eight seasons and continues today in reruns.
Coming this fall to NBC: Andy Griffith Show REDUX: Tom Hanks as Andy Taylor, Kathy Bates as Aunt Bea and Brad Pitt as Opie Taylor. Also starring, Steve Carrell as Barney Fife; Jack Black as Otis the drunk; and George Clooney as Floyd the Barber.
I still would vote Tyler Perry for President and Madea for 1st Lady. Then again, Andy Griffith and Aunt Bea or Rhett Butler and Miss Scarlet O'Hara. God I Love the South!!!
Good morning FB friends and family...another beautiful morning to enjoy...already watered the flowers an plants and did some yard work.I'm sitting up in bed with my bedside tray over my lap and eating Apple Pie, drinkin hot coffee, orange juice and cranberry juice...Just think about the episode on Andy Griffith where Gomer was suppose to be sick and was being taken care of by Andy, Aunt Bea and Opie.Gomer sitting up in bed with tray over his lap and his long legs stretched out.(-; Also was a episope where Gober was sick.Have a great day Y'all..(-; "Roll Tide"
I am in bed with air on and my new electric blanket on, watching The Andy Griffith Show, and pretending I am Aunt Bea...I wish it was those days again.not that I witnessed that era, of course, lol, but wish times were simple again...
Only one thing in one episode of Andy Griffith that I don't like...where Andy and Opie dirty the house back up after cleaning it cause they want Aunt Bea to feel needed and useful when she comes back home.Gary heard that and said see that's why I don't ever clean, I want you to feel needed.Thanks Andy lol
Just sitting here watching Andy Griffith, Aunt Bea calling from Mt. Pilot. Can you imagine picking up the phone and having to ask Sarah the operator to put a call through? Look what we can do now, it is amazing, yet sometimes I wonder if it is all good, that maybe we know too much all the time?
I've been having a rush of 60s T.V. nostalgia lately so I've been watching the Andy Griffith Show on Netflix. Every episode is available there! I've always loved the homespun charm of Sheriff Andy and the comedy relief provided by Barney Fife and company, but a couple of things have always left me with nagging questions. How are the people of Mayberry being adequately protected from crime and other misdemeanors by just two cops with one squad car? With all of his bungling and ineptitude, how in the *** does Barney keep his job?! If I was Andy, cousins or not, I'd have fired his *** and then filed charges on him for dereliction of duty! And old Aunt Bea is always sticking up for Barneys *** to boot! I love ya Andy but c'mon man, grow a pair! I guess that would've been a different show altogether though and probably not as funny! Afterall, who'd want to watch a sitcom where Fife goes to prison and Aunt Bea gets the pimp-hand! LMAO!
With the sudden and tragic death of Ron "Arnold Horshack" Palillo, it's only a matter of time before the tabloids start with the "Secret Ron Palillo took to the grave" Which inside will lay claim that he and John Travolta had a secrect *** love affair. It seems like everytime a star dies, tabloids lay claim of a so called secret. Take for example when Andy Griffith passed away last month they claimed he dispised Francis Bavier who played Aunt Bea. If stars do in fact have secrets, I would like to know how tabloids get a hold of them. By the way, they also laid this same claim about Travolta and Jeff Conaway.
Me:what did u study at church? Jesse:the guy who married the prostitute. Me:her name? Same as a character on Andy Griffith. Jesse:Aunt Bea?
My dear sister-in-law and friend, Brenda Griffin Lucas, and I decided to make lime pickles. The processing took two days and nights. We were afraid that they would turn out like Aunt Bea's pickles on the Andy Griffith Show, so we came up with a back-up plan if this should happen. We decided we would take them to the VA visitor's center just over Jenkins/Pound mountain and give them to passers-by, welcoming them to Virginia, lol. However, the pickles are delicious, so we decided to keep them.
One thing Andy, Aunt Bea, Barney, Floyd, and all the other "Andy Griffith" characters found out...The only place more Peaceful, Loving and Caring than Mayberry is Heaven...(-;
Support your local business owners. They are more than just product providers, they are also your frineds and neighbors. After gettting my wife home last night we realized she had several presciptions that needed to be filled. I called our local pharmasist in Purvis, MS (John's Discount Drugs) and he left a family gathering and met me within five minutes to fill them. There is also J & H Auto Parts that have met me on their day off so I could get a battery or a jump for a car. They might be a few pennies higher than the big box stores but well worth it. Always remember the Andy Griffith episode where Aunt Bea bought all of the meat from the discount butcher shop that had come into Mayberry. This may not have been expressed too well, but I hope you get my point. Thanks to you guys. You are America!
On a recent trip to Myrtle Beach, I broke up the 12 hour drive with a stop at Andy Griffith's hometown of Mt. Airy, NC. Andy patterned Mayberry after his hometown. I stayed across from Aunt Bea's Restaurant (Had Breaksfast; Aunt Bea would not be pleased). The next day I did a quick tour of town with some pictures included below.
I think it is one of those things from Andy Griffith, where they call the Party Line and ask for Aunt Bea
.For everybody out there, I have 5 of the most wonderful children in the world. They c came up with the most amazing and funny thing to do for my birthday. Picture 5 grown adults dressed up as Andy, Barney, Aunt Bea, Thelma Lou and Gomer. Doing a skit from the Andy Griffith Show. Barney buys a new car. Too funny for words. They are the greatest. Love you all. MOm
Just finished watching the Andy Griffith Show episode where sweet Aunt Bea thought she had a great recipe for pickles...but they were actually horrible! Andy, Barney and Opie didn't have the heart to tell her...so they had to learn to love 'em! LOL! The next episode is where the three escaped female prisoners ("Big Maud" was the ringleader...Ha!) take Barney and Floyd hostage in the woods! Ha! Great, wholesome comic relief on a wonderful Sunday afternoon. Cool! I wish I could stay and watch, but on to INSIGHT for Couples at True Light Christian Fellowship at 6. Later!
The past two days two of my favorite actors have passed away: Sherman Hemsley (aka George Jefferson) age 74 and Chad Everett (from Medical Center) age 75. This year has seen the loss of some truly talented celebrities, at least they were blessed enough to share their creative gifts with the fans who loved them. May they rest in peace...be fondly remembered, and have a long run on syndicated t.v. Last but not least, I hope they're in heaven with Barney Fife, Goober, Andy Griffith and Aunt Bea.
Another Andy Griffith Triva question: What was the name of Aunt Bea's best friend?
Decisions decisions. Such as. Do I try to clean up the house tonight from the Daddy Day Care fiasco of the last week, or leave it so Katie will know how much she is needed and missed? I remember an episode of Andy Griffith with the same dilemma when Aunt Bea went outta town.
Andy Griffith in "A Face in the Crowd" on right now. Aunt Bea would not be pleased.
I heard that "Aunt Bea" and Andy Griffith didn't get along-true? (sorry can't spell her name)
the girl looked like Aunt Bea from Andy Griffith. But heres pic of the pizza.
Andy Griffith, rest his soul. I saw a few episodes of the AG marathon on TV land. I have come to the conclusion that Frances Bavier,(Aunt Bea) in Hillary Clintons mother! Look at them! It is undeniable!!!
It is Andy Griffith marathon on TVLAND. I got to see the first episode ever when Aunt Bea comes, as well as a few others that I never saw. Does anyone remember when the goat ate dynamite? Or when Barney joined the town choir?Or the one when they cought the cattle thief?
I always wanted to play one of the "fun girls" on Andy Griffith, but alas I am now an "Aunt Bea".sigh
OK. This is all kinds of geek awesomeness! I have been watching the Andy Griffith Show for the last two days. The first season was very good. I'll talk more about that later BUT (and here is the awesome part) there is an episode in the second season guest starring ALAN HALE!!! SKIPPER from GILLIGAN'S ISLAND! And he kept calling Barney (Don Knotts) LITTLE BUDDY! YEAH! Little Buddy! It was like some weird version of Gilligan's Island with Andy Griffith as the Professor, Don Knotts as Gilligan and Aunt Bea as Mrs. Howell. If Floyd the Barber had been in the episode, he could have been Mr. Howell, and Ellie (Eleanor Donahue) from the first season would have been BOTH Marianne and Ginger! Oh. It was SO good!
Watching some of the Andy Griffith marathon (yeah, I was watching Matlock marathon the other day) but one of my favorite is: Operation Pickle Exchange --Andy refers to Aunt Bea's pickles as kerosene pickles. All of these get me so tickled. love them.
TVLAND has the Andy Griffith Marathon on in tribute. The first episode that I saw was our introduction to Ernest T. Bass. RIP Andy. Tell Barney and Aunt Bea that we all said "Hey."
I actually saw an Andy Griffith Show that I don't remember. (Before aunt Bea came). I admit that I teared up.
I love that TVLand is running an all day Andy Griffith marathon! Nothing better than Andy & Barnie & Opie & Aunt Bea.
Watching the Andy Griffith episode that introduces Aunt Bea.
dfults The pickled vegetables may taste like *&^ but everytime I walk by them, my mouth waters. Home made pickles always reminds me of an Andy Griffith Show. Aunt Bea made the worst pickles so they all poured out Bea's pickles and put in store bought in her jars
Lots of good Andy Griffith episodes. Especially the one when Aunt Bea had a threesome with Howard Sprague and Floyd the Barber.
Movie idea: Bea Arthur & Aunt Bea from the Andy Griffith Show take care of the family of Larry Bird. It's called, "The Birds and the Beas."
You can watch Andy Griffith all day Saturday and Sunday on TVLand. The most requested episode is "The Pickle Story." Aunt Bea was a great cook, but when it came to canning pickles she failed miserably, and Andy and Barney and Opie suffered the consequences.
I had forgotten that in Andy Griffith's last movie, he played a frisky senior citizen. No joke. Proof at the link. In fact, I heard Helen Crump was a might upset at the pic below.
Here are two questions from Trivia last night... we got close but missed these two... so lets see how well you do: no fair googling. 1. History - How many life boats were on the Titanic??? 2. TV - On the Andy Griffith Show... what did Aunt Bea always make that no one liked??
OK folks we get it. Andy Griffith was a good man, American icon,somebody you looked up to. And yes Barney, Aunt Bea,Floyd,Goober,and Otis are waiting on you inside the Pearly Gates.But he was 86 years old and has been dead and BURIED for 3 days. Enough posts already. We ain't talking about Bear Bryant or Dale Earnhardt here
Aunt Bea was waiting at the pearly gates of heaven for you, Andy...and Barney, Goober, and the rest of the gang are all waiting for you at the fishin' hole. R.I.P. Andy Griffith a.k.a. Sheriff Andy Tayor.

I believe that JESUS is the King of Story Telling..He Loved telling children and His followers parables and stories.I think Andy Griffith is second only to JESUS in Story Telling...I believe that JESUS is listening to Andy tell fun and true stories in Heaven...JESUS, Goober, Aunt Bea, Floyd and a bunch more are laughing as Andy tells funny stories and plays his Guitar and sings "Praise Him Praise Him".Wanna join in the fun in Heaven?...Make JESUS the Lord of your life...John 3:16 (-;
was sorry to hear about Andy Griffith, loved to watch him and Barney and Goober and Aunt Bea and Opie and Floyd and Ms. Krumph and Thelma Lou and Otis and all the gang from Mayberry. Not too many shows that have a good message like the ones the Andy Griffith Show had. RIP AG!
Andy Griffith trivia: How did Aunt Bea come to stay with Andy and Opie to help out? Anybody know?
Is it just a coincidence that Andy Griffith died on same day Shelley's co-worker, Jay; entered and won first prize at Marion County Fair for making some jarred/canned food? I called him Aunt Bea. Andy, Barney, and Opie ate all of her pickles that taste terrrible and probably still have gut aches. I loved Andy and maybe Jay sent him one of his prize entries that was just a little too spicy. I will look into it! :-)
Spent part of the day with friends and relatives reliving all the Andy Griffith movies and t.v. parts. Yes, he will be missed, as will Mayberry and the wonderful days of Aunt Bea, Opie and the rest of the gang.
Since the passing of Andy Griffith and the just recently the scene outside my house of Grandpa X, my memory of moments from my youth with my 2 brothers, Richard and Michael, have surfaced. In regards to Andy G, I specifically remember heading to town, O'Neill in Holt County where I spent my young summers, and running into my grandmother's friends with a 'Ida and who are these young boys?' My grandmother's friends knew who we were, they just wanted to pinch our cheeks, kinda like Aunt Bea and the circle of her friends (Mayberry old ladies) would do when Opie and his friends frequented their beauty parlors. Then as we took off for the farm/ranch, my grandfather who never left the homestead, always managed to slip a dollar in our pockets for ice cream later. He always told us, "Don't tell grandma." Grandpa Jack always had money for ice cream. In reference to Grandpa X, who I mentioned earlier, seeing him buying ice cream for not only himself, but his grandson who was riding with him, reminded me of my scene ...
In an Andy Griffith mood.would like to hear some of your favorite quotes from "The Andy Griffith Show".I have posted this many times but I love Barney ..."giraffes are so selfish".Otis..."Look Out Sunday Driver!"...and Andy "Aunt Bea..Call the MAN!?
I hope Andy Griffith is up in heaven asking Sara to connect him to Floyd's barber shop while eating lunch made by Aunt Bea. RIP Andy
It is amazing how much we Americans are really like minded, on the important things. First always in our minds and hearts are our families and friends. In comparison, all other things come a distant second. It is also amazing how much we differ on the issues of lesser importance, and how fanatically we argue, name call, disparage, disrespect, fabricate truths, all in effort to show the other guy he is wrong and we are right. The zealous effort causes us to forget sometimes that we are more alike than different. Yesterday the nation lost Andy Griffith. The outpouring of saddens and the unanimous sense of loss and respect for a man that none of us knew shows once again that we are more alike than different. I suggest that it is not Andy Griffith that we are mourning, But Andy Taylor. Sheriff Taylor presided over the town of Mayberry, using his unflappable patience, and unwavering tolerance as a weapon, instead of a pistol, club, or harsh words, in the ongoing battle against the insecurities of his friend Ba ...
When I heard the news today that Andy Griffith had died, my first thoughts were for my friend Teddy Allen. But soon my thoughts turned to Poor Horatio.
Just sittig here watching a show called Make Room for Daddy. Andy Griffith, is in it as a sheriff. The one's that play as Aunt Bea, and Opie are in it, playing as other people. Does anyony know if this was a pilot show for the Andy Griffith Show?
Rest in peace Andy Griffith. At least now you will be able to eat Aunt Bea's pie again!!!
Remembering Mayberry today with a Lemon Buttermilk that would make Aunt Bea proud: Farewell, Andy Griffith.
I grew up with Andy Griffith, Opie, Aunt Bea and all the rest. We will miss you Sheriff Taylor.
For all of the Andy Griffith fans here in Mattoon ,did you know that Aunt Bea's friend Clara Edwards was born and lived in Mattoon?
I can honestly say that I have seen every episode of that Wonderful show, "The Andy Griffith Show". With it being in syndication for over 40 years now, I am sure most of you out there have seen most of them as well. RIP to my all time favorite TV personality, Sherriff Andy Taylor or Andy Griffith. What a great ride. Top 10 shows. 1. Opie The Birdman - Opie's slingshot kills Momma Bird and forces Opie to deal with the responsibility of being a mooma to Winking, Blinking and Nod. Best line on TV. Opie releases the birds and says boy Pa, this cage sure looks empty and Andy hears the birds singing in the trees and says Yeah son, But don't the trees sound full. :) 2. Aunt Bea moves in(episode 1) Bea comes to help Andy raise Opie. Aunt Bea thinks Opie doesnt want her there and he runs out I don't want to you go. Pa what she gonna do, she can't fish or play ball or nothing, She needs me. lol :) 3. Call the man. The taylors freezers is on the fritz. Aunt Bea, Call The man". 4. Romeo Floyd. Floyd's romantic pen pa ...
I watched the Andy Griffith Show and still do, in fact, but Andy Griffith was an actor meaning the show was an act. He had 3 wives and divorced 2 of them. Evidently he had a marriage problem of some sort or was just a bad judge of character for a mate. The most recent thing Andy did was to make a commercial urging everyone to get behind Obama's healthcare plan. That tells me his politics were pretty liberal or he was getting senile. Anyway, the idea of Mayberry was a perfect '50s setting and I'm sure takes us old timers back to our "Opie" days. Somewhere between then and now our moral code has been corrupted and if the show was going to be true to todays standards most likely Gober and Gomer would have been married, Helen and Andy would have been shacking up, Opie would have been aborted, Aunt Bea in a Nursing Home and Barnie in an asylum somewhere. Boy, time sure changes all.
Andy Griffith was as all American as Aunt Bea's Apple Pie. Andy Griffith and the values his show exemplified, will...
North Carolina, USA – There will be many words written and exchanged about the passing of the Screen legend Andy Griffith today. From my childhood as a Latino, a Brown-faced American, I enjoyed watching him and Opie drawl with that goofy Barney Fife and Aunt Bea on The Andy Griffith Show. There was ...
Gonna miss you Andy Griffith...tell Barney, Goober, Aunt Bea, and Otis hello ...the Best Show ever..
Andy Griffith, comforting and easy going in life, resting in peace now ...fitting such a piece of Americana to pass just as we celebrate the birth of Americana itself 236 years ago...forever in the mythical city of Mayberry, listening to Floyd's stories, calming Barney Fife's nerves and eating Aunt Bea's pie and Ritz...Mm good *** ..
Andy Griffith trivia: Bernard Fife had two different middle initials during his run on the show. What were they? Aunt Bea's friend Clara had 2 different last names during the show's run. What were they? Floyd the barber had two different last names ( although the first Floyd was not Howard McNear)What were they? Goober had two different last names. What were they? What was Barney's relationship to Andy and how many shows was it mentioned in? Jack Dodson played someone other than Howard Sprague in an earlier episode. What was his name? Ernest T Bass was played by Howard Morris. What airline commercial did he later do voice over for?
Being a man of good will and genuine humor (witness "No Time for Sergeants" early in his career), I truly believe that Andy Griffith would laugh along with this SCTV "send up" of his show, with Merv Griffin playing Andy Taylor's role while members of the SCTV cast portray Baney, Otis, Floyd and Aunt Bea, augmented by a little boy playing Andy's TV son, Opie. The exchanges between "Griffin as Andy" and "Floyd the Barber" are HILARIOUS to me!
Been walking around saying "Oh Andy!" in my best Aunt Bea voice all day since I heard Andy Griffith died. Wow I grew up on that show.
So who remembers the name of the lady who left on the 1st episode of the Andy Griffith Show that was replaced by Aunt Bea?
Beverly: Earl, your dinner is ready. Earl: Not until it is on the table. Earl: Did you put salad dressing on my salad? Bevery: No, I am leaving that one to you.Go Beverly! Are we in the 21st century or are we living in Mayberry, NC. No cuz Andy Griffith and Aunt Bea are dead! Earl we are getting you a stepford wife for your anniversary. lol There aren't many like you Earl! Love you!
Can you believe the Associated Press - Andy Griffith dies and there are no photos of Aunt Bea, Gomer, Goober or anyone other than Opie and Don Knotts - apparently can't have crap without AP
The world would be a different place today if Rodney King had been arrested in '92 by Andy Griffith and not the LAPD, don't you think? Aunt Bea would have made him a peach pie, and Barney would have let him out to watch the fights. RIP to both.
---Heaven is only waiting on Opie and Gomer Pyle for a Mayberry reunion. Floyd, Aunt Bea, Barney, and now Andy. Rest in peace Andy Griffith...your acting and your music played a big part of my childhood. I can't remember many days that I didn't watch at least one episode of the Andy Griffith Show or Matlock while sitting at my grandparents' house while growing up. It was either that or listening to your gospel albums on the record player. Those were simpler, better days.
Just saw on cnn.com that Andy Griffith has passed away. Who can forget all those episodes of The Andy Griffith Show? Sheriff Taylor, Barney Fife, Aunt Bea and Opie, Gomer Pyle and Goober. What great Classic TV!
Just Heard that Andy Griffith has passed. Makes you take pause and realize that the good old days of TV are gone. Who out there older than 50 doesn't remember Andy, Opie, Aunt Bea, Gomer, Goober, Helen Crump, Howard, Otis(town drunk), Thelma Lou, the Darling family and of course Ernest T. Bass. I'm sure I have missed some but shows like that was must see TV growing up. Guess I'm just a little Nostalgic today. Getting older tends to have that effect... LOL. Here's to Mayberry and better days gone by. Can't keep whistling that Mayberry tune. Here's hoping everyone has a wonderful and safe 4th of July... Don't forget to say a prayer for our Military men and women serving around the globe so we can enjoy our freedom's. God Bless Mayberry, God Bless each and everyone and God Bless America.
Kinda funny how seeing the news of the passing of someone I have never met can hit me right where I live. No, I never met Andy Griffith, and I bet you havn't either, but boy, it sure seems like I know him like a family member. He was always a favorite of mine as the sherriff of Mayberry, I must say I've never seen a single episode of Matlock, but I know almost every word of dialogue from his old black and white tv show. In my mind, he was kinda in the same category as all of my grampa's. I just figured he'd live forever. Well, my grandpas are no longer here, and now Andy Taylor is gone too. RIP Andy, I hope you are up there with Barney and Goober, Floyd, and Aunt Bea. You all will always be together in one of the best places in my memories. Today's Thought of the Day...The highest reward for a person's work is not what you get for doing it, but for what you become by it. Think about it...
A part of our childhood passed away this morning. Andy Griffith, on our black and white televisions with no remote channel changer ( who needed it with only 2, 5, 7, 9 and sometimes even 11) made us all smile. His show was one that we could watch in reruns most any time of day and with an ensemble of characters, so perfect for the simple life of the early '60's . With Barney, Gomer and Aunt Bea ( I actually have an Aunt Bea in my family), I hope that Andy is patroling that great Mayberry in the sky. I have a Chicago Tribune TV Week from the '60's ( always very colorful insert in the Sunday paper). The cover is Andy and Opie. Seems strange to see them in color.
estion DARE COUNTY, NC (CBSMiami) – Andy Griffith, the iconic actor who was the chief television lawman of a tiny North Carolina town made so real it’s celebrated today as a real place, died at his North Carolina home this morning. He was 86 years old. Griffith, whom along with Aunt Bea, his TV son Opie (played by Ron Howard), and characters like Goober and Floyd the Barber, helped create the town of Mayberry, a mythical southern town were the crooks let them into and out of jail and the deputy sheriff, played by Don Knotts, was so hapless Sherriff Andy let him carry only a single bullett, was forever known as the easy spoken man who always seemed to have the right solution. After the series ended, Griffith had a second career as the homsepun lawyer in Matlock, a hero for a generation of seniors. Tuesday morning paramedics were called to Griffith’s home on Roanoke Island shortly after 7 a.m., according to the Dare County Sheriff’s Office. He was born in Mount Airy, North Carolina on June 1, 1926. ...
This is “No Time for Sergeants.” Sarah, you need to get Aunt Bea, Barney, Floyd, Gomer, and the rest of Mayberry on a party line. You can “Go Ask Alice” if you want, but I’m afraid we may have to call in that high powered Atlanta lawyer “Matlock” to look into this. Something terrible has happened to Sheriff Taylor, and we all know that he was more than just “A Face in the Crowd.” RIP ~ Andy Griffith
Depending on your cable TV network.Last night, WATL returned Andy Griffith, 1st episode and only 1 of 2 in which Barney Fife refers to Andy as cousin and Aunt Bea was introduced...Finally, quality TV is back!
Watching the Andy Griffith episode where Aunt Bea makes her infamous pickles. Too funny!!
LOL Kate...I think U would be happy w/Mrs. Cleaver..better than Leigh callin U Aunt Bea! (Andy Griffith Show) :)
What kind of car did Aunt Bea drive in Mayberry on the Andy Griffith Show? Post your answer, and if it is correct, you'll be entered into a monthly drawing for a chance to win a FREE OIL CHANGE!!!
I bet North Carolina would have taken the high road of love and acceptance on the same sex marriage issue if there had been just one episode of Andy Griffith in which a couple of New York Show Biz *** men have car trouble when passing through Mayberry. They end up lavishing love on Aunt Bea for her pies and show a few dance steps to Opie and Barn. Goober fixes the car and they head back for NY under smiles and waves. "Gee, Pa, them men sure was different wasn't they?" They sure was Opie, They's a lot of different folks in the world."
The recent death of George Lindsey, who played Goober Pyle on "The Andy Griffith Show," reminds me of all the unforgetable characters who were on that show. Andy Taylor, played by Andy Griffith, still alive at 81. Opie , played by Ron Howard. Barney Fife, played by Don Knotts, died at 81. Aunt Bea, played by Frances Bavier, died in 1989, and Gomer Pyle, played by Jim Nabors, still alive at 81. There are many others, too numerous to list.
The worst thing that ever happened on the Andy Griffith Show was Aunt Bea's nasty *** pickles.
Adrian is loving his Fried Chicken, fried taters & sweet corn I cooked for him! :) But his favorite part is he is also enjoying old Andy Griffith episodes with Gramps as well, He loves Opey, Aunt Bea, Barney & Pa (Sherriff Andy) lol! He loves these shows! But he loves my cooking better he says! Lol! He just being kind, 'cause really loves The Andy Griffith!
If you wake up in the wee hours of the morning, and you just can't sleep, turn on your TV and go to the Hispanic channel and catch the Andy Griffith Show. It's hilarious. Andy walks into the office and says: "Buenos Dias Barn." Priceless. AND wait until you hear Aunt Bea, Barney, and Opie. I'm going to cancel all of my channels that speak English.
