Synopsis


One of the few unqualified hits of the 1960-1961 season, The Andy Griffith Show was a shoe-in for a second season renewal come September of 1961. Back in the saddle are Andy Griffith as Andy Taylor, easygoing sheriff of Mayberry, NC; Don Knotts as Andy's nervous, anal-retentive deputy Barney Fife; Ronny Howard as the widowed Andy's son Opie; and Frances Bavier as Andy and Opie's warmhearted housekeeper, Aunt Bee. Ever so gradually, and never pushing the issue, the series has evolved into an ensemble piece, with Andy Taylor frequently and graciously surrendering the spotlight to the supporting characters. Among the citizens of Mayberry who can be seen with more frequency during season two are Betty Lynn as Barney's girlfriend Thelma Lou, Hal Smith as town drunk Otis Campbell ("deputized" so that he can lock himself in the Mayberry jail whenever going on a bender), and Howard McNear as dithery barber Floyd Lawson. After unsuccessfully trying to romantically pair up Andy with drugstore clerk Ellie Walker during the previous season, the writers attempted to develop a new relationship between our hero and county nurse Mary Simpson. However, since Mary is played by two different actresses (Julie Adams and Sue Ane Langdon) in two separate episodes, no sense of continuity is established with the character, thus Andy remains unattached. Closing out its second season as America's seventh most popular series, The Andy Griffith Show also collected its second Emmy Award, again presented to co-star Don Knotts. ~ Hal Erickson

    With the second season, The Andy Griffith Show settled into its run as one (if not best) of television's funniest and most-loved sitcoms. Even today, new fans are discovering the joy of viewing these episodes of small-town humor in simpler times. All 31 episodes of Season 2 are here along with the original sponsor spots that you don't get to see in the syndicated shows. Highly recommended!

    One of my favorite episodes in the Second Season of the Andy Griffith Show is “The Pickle Story”. Aunt Bee decides to make pickles to enter in the county fair. Andy and Barney taste them and the pickles taste like Kerosene, so from then on they are called the kerosene cucumbers. The Second Season of the Andy Griffith Show is full of clean good humor and laughs. I would recommend that you buy a copy.

    What a wonderful show from a time when neighbors cared about one another and everyone knew each other. A great time gone by and wonderful to relax to after a long day of nothing but bad news. These shows are good wholesome entertainment!

    It is so much fun in seeing the pickle episode in color to see Aunt Bees pickles green color that enhances the whole episode. I love this and the other episode and am glad to see it colorized very well

    I grew up watching Andy Griffith and his show is still good today. If you like older style shows than I would recommend this, I think you would enjoy it.
