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

    The First Season of The Andy Griffith show is the start of 8 wonderful years of episodes. In this season you’ll meet Deputy Barney Fife (Don Knotts), Opie Taylor (Ron Howard) Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and Sheriff Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith). In this season we witness the start of Barney Fife’s hilarious moments such as: Criminals getting the drop on him, and firing his gun into the ceiling, Andy’s desk and many other dimwitted scenarios that made the Andy Griffith show one of the highest rated shows

    This show holds up well after all these years. Andy Griffith was one of a kind and he is sorely missed. The show covers all of the classic values and is great family entertainment. I always feel better after watching an episode.
