This is our second episode with Neal Brower interviewing writer Harvey Bullock at Mayberry Days in 2002. Harvey Bullock (June 4, 1921 – April 23, 2006) wrote 31 episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, 21 episodes of Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. and co-wrote the TV movie Return to Mayberry with Everett Greenbaum. So much of what we, as fans, know of the town of Mayberry was created by the mind of this amazing man.
The quality of the audio isn’t perfect but this content is something you will not find elsewhere. If you watch the video verison of the show, you can see that Harvey didn’t seem to want to hold the mic up to his face so he’s a little hard to hear. From time to time there are sound artifacts that I’ve cleaned up as best I could so they wouldn’t be distracting.
In this episode Harvey discusses writers meetings, Elvis, writing dialog for Opie, his writing partner Ray Allen, Mr. McBeevee, scripts and tidbits of Mayberry history.
You will not want to miss any of this series.
Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Jamie Farr.
