Andy Griffith Sixth Season

by on 6/12/2008

I am building my collection of the Andy Griffith Show series. I have always enjoyed the simple, clean, humor of The Andy Griffith Show. This Sixth Season dvd set is the first season without Don Knotts (Barney); and, the first season shot in color. Though there still is a resemblence to the earlier seasons in the humor and atmosphere of the show, something seems to change. It appears that Andy Griffith shows a weariness with the townspeople and their apparent naive'. It is almost as if something has died inside him. He seems to always be putting out fires, and he is tired of dong so. It is no longer funny or cute to him. I still enjoy watching the show from this season on, but I must say that I enjoy the first 5 seasons much more

Product Overview

Now you can take home another classic season of The Andy Griffith Show, featuring 30 more episodes of the wholesome and irreverent humor that entertained audiences and critics alike all over the world. The Complete Sixth Season includes many firsts for the little town of Mayberry. It was the first season to be aired in color and it also marked the first of several re-appearances by Don Knotts as the loveable deputy Barney Fife, which helped garner him his 3rd Emmy Award for the role.

So join Andy (Andy Griffith), Opie (Ron Howard), Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and the rest of the quirky residents of Mayberry in this 5-disc set of the show that TV Guide reveres as "one of the greatest television shows of all time."

Editors Note
Note THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW premiered in 1960 and, featuring one of the most beloved television fathers of all time, quickly charmed its way into the hearts of audiences. Set in the fictitious environs of Mayberry, North Carolina, the series chronicles daily life in that peaceful Southern hamlet through the gently humorous eyes of town sheriff Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith). A widower raising his young son, Opie (a pre-HAPPY DAYS Ron Howard), with the help of his live-in spinster aunt, Bee (Frances Bavier), Andy capably navigates single parenthood with the same goodhearted wisdom that he brought to his law enforcement duties. This collection presents all 30 episodes of the series' sixth season, the first without the fidgety, bug-eyed antics of bungling deputy sheriff Barney Fife (Don Knotts), who left at the end of the previous season and was briefly replaced by Jack Burns as Deputy Warren Ferguson.

ReviewSource The DVD Report
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 televisionÉ 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 (Season 6) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "Opie's Job" in which Opie falls into a heated competition with another boy for a grocery store job, prompting Opie to run all over Mayberry delivering goods in an attempt to please his bossÉ
