Two Chairs No WaitingSet in Rachel Kansas, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken is one of my favorite Don Knotts movies.  That could be because so many folks from Mayberry showed up in this, Mr. Knotts first movie after leaving The Andy Griffith Show.

The first is, of course, Don Knotts as Luther Heggs but lets start of with the behinds the scenes folk.  The Ghost and Mr. Chicken was written by Jim Fritzell and Everett Greenbaum.  Andy Griffith also helped re-write the script but is uncredited for his efforts.

That is only the beginning of the connections and fun trivia related to Mayberry and Don Knotts first movie following The Andy Griffith Show.  Turns out there was so much that this will be the first of two episodes of Two Chairs No Waiting that we’ll do on The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.

Follow me on Twitter if you use twitter. I’ve been posting Mayberry things there as another way to let folks know about The Andy Griffith Show.

Tonight we’ll be hearing about a lady named Lee Canon and her brother Richard “Doc” Ferrara. I’m sure you’re asking, who are the Ferrara siblings and what’s this got to do with The Andy Griffith Show.

Lee Cannon’s first job was as a home economics teacher in Osage, a community near Cannon’s hometown of Morgantown, West Virginia.

It was also there in West Virginia’s coal country that Cannon’s brother Dr. Richard Ferrara first took banjo lessons from the famous banjoist Eddie Peabody. Doc’s biggest fan was Don Knotts of Andy Griffith fame, his best friend since middle school when the two started playing music together.

I guess you see the connection now so give a listen to some memories from Don Knotts Ferrara friends.

Two Chairs No Waiting

Last week was about Don Knotts got his star on Hollywood Walk of Fame. This episode we get to hear bits of the audio from the luncheon held following the star ceremony.

We start off with John Ritter talking about seeing The Andy Griffith Show for the first time. Having gone to church with Andy, he enjoyed the show but recalls that Barney was the character that he loved.

Andy Griffith then speaks about his good friend Don Knotts. They have known one another since they were 30 years old. Andy says that the five years with Don on The Andy Griffith Show were the best years of his life.

Finally, Don  says, “Thank you” to all those that helped him get where he is. I can say, from all of us, THANK YOU Don Knotts.

The audio is a bit hard to hear and you will heard glasses clinking and laughter of those in attendance.  I hope you can enjoy what you can hear as it certainly is rare audio and I wanted to share it with you.
