Sad news fellas,
We already lost a few Mayberry folk over the past month or so, now Andy Griffith has passed away this morning at 86.

RIP Andy...and thank you!

Sorry to hear this....

The wife and I watch the Andy Griffith Show during lunch almost every day.

One of the best and will be sorely missed. This was and still is a great show to watch. We are losing all the good people.

Andy made us laugh for many, many years, and he did it CLEAN! Far too few like him left.
I still have a 45 RPM record of Andy's renditions of &quot;Romeo &amp; Juliet&quot; and this one; &quot;What it was. Was Football&quot;.

God Bless you Andy, and many Thanks for the years you gave us.

More Mayberry and less Jersey Shore.

One of the best!!! That was a time when TV was actually entertaining, clean, and safe for the whole family. It is outta control now, and the producers must really be running out of ideas. Maryland Public TV has some good stuff, and once in a while the History Channel does, too---once in a while.
Ernest. T. Bass was a favorite of mine.
Also........ close your eyes and listen to Michael Waltrip doing a commentary---sound just like Sherrif Andy Taylor!!! And, almost kinda resembles him!!!! All in all, not a bad person for whom to be compared.

So long Andy---we were lucky to have you in our lives.
