The Andy Griffith Show (Season 3) DVD Review


One of the most beloved shows in television history, The Andy Griffith Show takes its viewers back to a simpler time of small town America, apple pie, and black and white television… The trademark whistling theme song is one of the most recognizable in history, and the duration of the show in syndicated reruns is unrivaled by its peers.

The Andy Griffith Show follows the exploits of the small town of Mayberry and its family-values, no nonsense sheriff Andy. Widowed, and father to a small boy named Opie (Ron Howard), Andy is joined in Mayberry by his sidekick Deputy Barney Fife, his relative and housekeeper Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a host of other eccentric characters.

But the show stealer is Barney Fife (Don Knotts) who plays the role of a sometimes incompetent, kooky deputy always in over his head. The onscreen dynamic between Griffith and Knotts is truly magical. Both men would go on to heralded careers in show business with Knotts starring in numerous roles, such as Mr. Furley on Three's Company, and Griffith as the title star of Matlock. And Ron Howard (Opie) would go on to establish himself as one of Hollywood's most well-known directors…

The Andy Griffith Show (Season 3) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "Mr. McBeevee" in which Opie makes friends with a telephone repairman named Mr. McBeevee who he describes to Andy and Barney as a man who lives in the trees, jingles when he walks, and has twelve extra hands! Since they've never meet Mr. McBeevee, Andy and Barney think that Opie's new friend is make believe - at least until Opie comes home with a quarter he says Mr. McBeevee gave him! Now, Andy must investigate or else risk punishing his son for stealing the quarter… Other notable episodes from Season 3 include "Barney Mends a Broken Heart" in which Barney complicates Andy's love life by fixing him up with a new girl when Andy's date, Peggy, cancels on him, and "Barney and the Governor" in which Barney is given a personal commendation by the Governor for his excellent job performance, but turns up drunk when Otis spikes the water cooler…
