||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' eighth and final season, including fan-favorite episodes like "Barney Hosts a Summit Meeting" and "Mayberry R.F.D." as well as guest appearances by Don Knotts, Jack Nicholson, Harry Dean Stanton, Teri Garr, Ken Berry, and Howard Hesseman.
