First things first, here’s a link to the Andy Griffith Show theme song: theandygriffithshowtv
Today, I started: THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW Group on StumbleUpon.
Andy Taylor (82): In 2008, Andy Griffith is still going strong. Andy appeared in country singer Brad Paisley’s music video “Waitin’ on a Woman” released on June 27, 2008. Also in fall 2008, Griffith will appear in the romantic comedy Play The Game alongside Doris Roberts, as a widowed grandfather re-entering the dating world after 60 years.
Barney (July 21, 1924 – February 24, 2006) Don Knott’s hometown of Morgantown, West Virginia, has begun creation of a statue of the actor that will be placed in a memorial park along the river and Don Knotts Boulevard.
18th Annual MAYBERRY DAYS
Mayberry Days is the annual festival of the Surry Arts Council that brings fans and friends from all over the county together in Andy Griffith’s hometown of Mount Airy, North Carolina. This year’s special events are described below, along with all the traditional events in the Mayberry Days Primer.
Special guests scheduled to attend this year include:
Mayberry Days is a festival for the whole family with activities and events for the fans to those who long for the days when life was simple and the Sheriff didn’t carry a gun. Enjoy a bottle of pop while playing checkers, relax to music from many local bands playing the same songs that Andy grew up with in Mount Airy and be sure to get your picture with the TV Land statue of Andy & Opie. There is so much to do during the festival, but there is always time to slow down and enjoy what Mayberry means to you.
For me, the Andy Griffith Show is the ultimate television program. Every episode is a gem, chock full of down home humor and small town philosophies that have passed the test of time. Peaceful living, lasting friendships, country courtships, and family values make up the magic that still draw fans in four decades later. The characters are more than actors we respect; they are our friends. We all can identify with someone from Mayberry. There’s Andy, Barney, Opie, Aunt Bee, Helen, Thelma Lou, Floyd, Otis, Gomer, Goober. There’s Ernest T. Bass, Howard, Mayor, Claira, the Darlins, and Emmet. And there’s oh so many more .
If you’re a fan of the Andy Griffith Show, or if you’re just curious, stop by the AGS group and say Hey!
