Essentially a continuation of The Andy Griffith Show (1960). In fact, the series premier featured the wedding of Andy to his long time girlfriend Helen Crump, and Barney Fife can briefly be seen serving as Andy's best man. See more »
This show was cute and innocent like the original, but it lagged a bit in some episodes. But I found out that if the episodes centered around the trio of Goober, Howard and Emmett, then it was funny as anything!! It was hilarious how those three could play off of each other, as they picked up the void of comedy left by Ken Berry and Arlene Golonka (does she always sound like a little girl when she speaks??) Ken Berry was funny when he was on Mama's Family, but in this show, he is not funny at all. But it is still a good show.
