Andy Griffith-7th Season (1966)
|Down-home humor and an endearing cast of characters helped make The Andy Griffith Show one of the most beloved comedies in the history of television. Introduced as a spinoff of The Danny Thomas Show in 1960, The Andy Griffith Show ran for eight seasons in prime time.|
Widower Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith) divides his time between raising his young son, Opie (Ron Howard), and his job as sheriff (and Justice of the Peace) of the sleepy North Carolina town of Mayberry. Andy and Opie live with Andy's Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), who serves as a surrogate mother to both father and son. Andy's nervous cousin, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), is his deputy sheriff--whose utter incompetence is tolerated because Mayberry is virtually crime-free. So wet your whistle, grab your fishing pole and take a trip back to Mayberry with this five disc set containing all 30 episodes from The Complete Seventh Season of the classic hit series!
Editor's NoteTHE 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 good-hearted wisdom that he brought to his law-enforcement duties. Featuring special guest appearances by Jack Nicholson, Rob Reiner, the Darlings, and Don Knotts (who left the show at the end of the sixth season), this collection presents all 30 episodes of the series' seventh season, including fan favorites like "The Darling Fortune," "A Visit to Barney Fife," and "Barney Comes to Mayberry."
