Synopsis


The "ensemble" feel of The Andy Griffith Show has not entirely solidified during the series' first season on CBS. Thus, we find more episodes centering exclusively around the character of Mayberry, NC sheriff Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith) than would be customary in later seasons. Still, there is plenty of time for the series' secondary characters to shine, notably Don Knotts as Andy's uptight, overzealous deputy Barney Fife (identified as Andy's cousin in the episode "The Manhunt," a familial link that would be ignored and forgotten as the series rolled on). Also allowed to take center stage from time to time are the widowed Andy's young son Opie (Ronny Howard) and Andy and Opie's housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), who is "hired" in the series' very first episode. Throughout season one, the writers endeavor to develop a romance between Andy Taylor and Ellie May Walker (Elinor Donahue), a headstrong and highly intelligent young woman who clerks at her uncle's drugstore. Evidently, however, the sparks never flew, and Ellie would be written off the show by season's end. Introduced as part of CBS' powerhouse Monday night sitcom lineup (all of them sponsored by General Foods), The Andy Griffith Show ended its first season as the nation's fourth most popular series. As a bonus, Don Knotts picked up the first of his five Emmy awards for Outstanding Performance in a Supporting Role." ~ Hal Erickson

    This is the way TV was ment to be. Clean cut humor with a down home feel. The deleted scenes are great. We try to figure out which ones they are? There is at least four to five minutes cut out for the contemporary commercials when you watch these reruns on regular or cable tv. These DVDS are the greatest! My parents and my whole Family, just love them! When there is nothing on TV because of this writers Stike I just pop in a dvd and before I know it the night has just flew by. This was by far the Best Money I've spent in a long time! EVERYONE LOVES THESE DVDS!!! THANKS TO BEST BUY!!!!!!

    Series originally aired in late 1960. The show progressed through 8 seasons with cast changes, transitioned to color production about mid-series (1965), and remained faithful to the original concept of small-town daily living throughout the production run. Nothing since has been close in providing a family oriented 1/2 hour entertainment show suitable for everyone. Hurray for the "good ole days".

I cant get the 4th show to play on my bluray player but works in all my other machines ?Elly comes to town is the episode, ive tried 3 sets and the same thing happens. Its at a very good price since when it first came out it was $235.98. I bought mine for $67.99. for 8 seasons that is hard to beat.

    I grew up with these shows and watched many in syndication years after. Some of the comedy is dated and corny, but some is classic! The music is good. The memories are great. If you are a boomer, you may remember these shows. Like the Rascal Flatt's song says, "I miss Mayberry!" You don't have to with this collection.

    I LOVE the Andy Griffith show, and this collection is great! The special features are lacking a bit, but what do you expect...the show is 50 years old. Still an incredible purchase....althought 100 bucks feels a little steep.

    I keep this collection at my Dad's house. We both enjoyed this show when I was a kid. It is very convenient to pop in a disk and watch a couple of episodes together. The picture and sound quality are both pretty good.
