BUT, today on XM radio I heard Andy Griffith do a bit about Christopher Columbus asking King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella for funding to sail to the new world, and it was funny as hell. Really funny. You get the feeling that Griffith didn't rehearse every line, he was just a very funny story teller. The kind of guy who could tell a story at a party that would leave all the guests hooting with laughter.

I found the bit on YouTube. This is funny, whoever you are. ;D

I have heard that one. My favorite one is the Football story. He was a good storyteller.

Next one up would be Sue Anne Langdon, who was just on for one show IIRC. As was Julie Adams, who played the county nurse. Again, just one appearance. IIRC there was one other woman involved before they got to Helen Crump, played by Aneta Corsaut. sad that Corsault died of cancer before the "Return To Mayberry" tv movie was made.
According to Wikipedia, Aneta Corsaut appeared in Return to Mayberry in 1986 and The Andy Griffith Show Reunion Show in 1993. She died in 1995 at age 62. Jay

My Dad had us watching, "No Time For Sargeants". I think I was too young at the time to catch on to all the humor in it but I saw my Dad laughing a lot.

Just viewed "List of the Andy Griffith Show guest stars [en.m.wikipedia.org], and was surprised to catch some of the notes, that were pretty interesting in themselves, listing how we may have seen them from other shows. Also, listed more than one episode that Jack Nicholson was in. I only recalled the episode where he was a defendant in court and Aunt Bee was on the jury. I somehow missed placing him where he played a baby's father, in the episode, "Opie Finds A Baby".

I agree with a previous poster, regarding one of the best, most comical episodes being that of the loaded Billy Goat.

Cute, but not really comical, the episode/s where Opie has a crush on his teacher. The one where the Darling family try to get Opie to be the future husband of the daughter's little baby girl and using disappearing ink. Freaking out Papa Darling. My other all time favorite is Andy's renewed belief in his son's honesty, regarding the not made up, Mr McBeeVee.

The others were centered around Gomer and going into the Marines. My Dad enjoyed watching those episodes, as well as the break-off, "Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.".

this may sound silly, but when i was studying Hinduism, i was imagining Andy as an Avatar, patiently helping the citizens of "Maya-Berry" with their everyday illusions about reality...<lol>
