|Down-home humor and an endearing cast of characters helped to make The Andy Griffith Show one of the most beloved comedies in the history of television. Introduced as a spinoff from The Danny Thomas Show in 1960, The Andy Griffith Show ran for eight seasons in prime time. Widower Andy Taylor divides his time between raising his young son, Opie, and his job as sheriff (and Justice of the Peace) of the sleepy North Carolina town, Mayberry. Andy and Opie live with Andy's Aunt Bee, who serves as a surrogate mother to both father and son. Andy's nervous cousin, Barney Fife, is his deputy sheriff whose utter incompetence is tolerated because Mayberry is virtually crime-free.System Requirements:Running Time: 915 MinutesFormat: DVD MOVIE|
Editor's NoteTHE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW, which originated as a spinoff of MAKE ROOM FOR DADDY, premiered in 1960 and quickly charmed its way into the hearts of audiences with one of the most beloved television fathers of all time. The series chronicled daily life in the peaceful fictitious Southern hamlet of Mayberry, North Carolina, 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 navigated single parenthood with the same goodhearted wisdom that he brought to his law enforcement duties--that is, when he wasn't being hampered by the fidgety, bug-eyed antics of his bungling deputy sheriff, Barney Fife (Don Knotts). A wholesome throwback to a simpler time, this mini-collection presents the series' first eight episodes.
