Two Chairs No Waiting

We’re back for more from the 1991 Opryland Mayberry Reunion held in Nashville, TN.  This episode we hear from Don Knotts about why he left The Andy Griffith Show as well as other memories of Mayberry.

George “Goober” Lindsey shares about where he got inspiration for the Goober character.

Hal “Otis Campbell” Smith tells us a bit about some of the cartoon voices he did for us as well.

Order of appearance: Don Knotts, George Lindsey, and Hal Smith.

We also get a bit of listener feedback about Bannertown, NC relating back to our “Opie’s Fortune” episodes #74-75.

I hope you enjoy the show.

Allan, I love to listen to interviews with cast members, so please continue to include these in your podcasts whenever you can acquire them. I’m always interested in any behind-the-scenes information about TAGS or TAGS actors. Thanks!

I was there in Opryland in 1991 at the Mayberry reunion. I will never forget that afterward there was a picnic with the cast members. I also wanted to say that my family and I went to Mount Airy last year. I had such a good time! I have so many memories. I have been watching the Andy Griffith show since age 6; I am 48 now and still watching the show. Thanks for your podcast!
