Theme Song / Opening Credits



The show was one of only 3 shows (I Love Lucy and Seinfeld) to end while still at the top of the Nielsen Ratings.

Andy Griffith and Frances Bavier did not get along during the filming of the series.

Mayberry’s squad car was a Ford Galaxie supplied for free by a local Ford dealer.

It’s never mentioned on the show what happened to Opie’s mother, just that she died when Opie was very young.


Barney Fife: Nip it in the bud!

Andy Taylor: Floyd.
Floyd Lawson: What’s the matter?
Andy Taylor: My sideburns.
Floyd Lawson: Your sideburns – what’s the matter with your sideburns?
Andy Taylor: Why, they’re both even.
Floyd Lawson: Well, I’ll be dogged. How’d that happen?
Andy Taylor: I declare, Floyd, I believe you’re getting the hang of it. And looka there – they’re the right length and everything.
