TCNW 410: Still Fun Watching Mayberry

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:28:20

Last week we covered some of the information found in the January 2017 issue of The eBullet but there was one part I didn’t cover called “Odd Facts Known by Few.”  I didn’t cover it because I had already planned to do an episode about the topic but Jim Clark, being the master of Mayberry that he is, beat me to it. 🙂

You see, there were a couple of fun Mayberry things that showed up on MeTV’s website about Mayberry and those things were too good to let pass by even if you have already heard about them when you read The eBullet.

Can you guess out of all the television shows that are out there, what The Andy Griffith Show ranked, viewing wise, in 2016?  I’ll tell you…in the show.  We’ll also look at 11 things you may never have noticed on The Andy Griffith Show.

All in all, we’re going to see  it’s still fun watchin’ Mayberry.

BOUNS:  This Week in Mayberry History (by Randy Turner) tell us about Arte Johnson and Bill Bixby.  Don’t miss any of Randy’s daily doses of Mayberry history by sending him an email to TurnersGrade@gmail.com and asking to be notified.  He’ll send you an e-mail with a link to read his wonderful daily reports.

I’m always looking for things to tell you related to The Andy Griffith Show and as part of that I was watching TAGS with my lovely wife Jan just today and spotting something that I’d never seen before.  It was on the episode “Andy the Matchmaker” and has to do with the Mayberry squad car being magic.  As I looked more, I saw that not only was there some witchery afoot but the squad car was having some work done on it.

If you watch the video version, you’ll see what I’m talking about but if you only listen…don’t feel left out…I’ll have screen shots posted in the links section for you to be able to see what I found.

Last episode we talked about the episode of The Andy Griffith Show called “Mayberry on Record” and the reversed audio we hear when Mr. Maxwell is rewinding the tape recorder that Barney had just spoken into.  I played around with the audio and tried to pull out some of what was said and challenged some of you audio engineers out there to help us figure out even better what was being said.

Mike Peacock from Indiana rose to the occasion and provided exactly what I had asked for so on this episode we’ll hear Mayberry on Record, reversed!  Thank you so much, Mike, for taking time to do this for all us Mayberry fans.

Paul Mulik wrote in to give us even more information about Mayberry on Record which included the name of the actual album used as the “Mayberry on Record” stand-in during the episode epilogue.  Great information all around about this wonderful TAGS episode.

Finally, we hear from James Robert Phillips, Sr. about “Andy’s Gift” to all fans of The Andy Griffith Show. He had posted his thoughts on a Facebook group and I asked for permission to share it here on the podcast. Thanks to him for allowing the use of his heartfelt Mayberry thoughts.

Two Chairs No Waiting 277: He Was Out!

He was out!  That’s right!  Following our last podcast episode, the listeners have spoken and agree by a majority that Opie was out.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, head back to episode 276 of Two Chairs and give it a listen…we’ll wait right here.

Two listeners called in to share their comments with us about the call Andy made and to give another bit of trivia related to the episode of The Andy Griffith Show called “Mayberry on Record.”

Friend of the show, Jack Fellenzer, send me a bumper sticker for a feller running for Lt. Governor in Arkansas who’s name is….. Andy Mayberry!  I’m not getting political here on the podcast but when you visit his website you see right there in the top left corner the words “Nip it in the Bud!” so how bad can he be?  He is a big fan of The Andy Griffith Show and his name is Andy Mayberry.  That’s great!  I don’t know his politics but he would certainly get my attention enough to check him out if I was in his state.

Two Chairs No Waiting 276: Was He Out?

Was he out?  That’s the question I’d like to hear your opinion on after you hear and see all the facts about The Andy Griffith Show episode, “The Ball Game.”  This was a color episode…WAIT…don’t leave!  This is a really good episode and you’re missing out on what Mayberry has to offer if you don’t know about this episode.

When Early Gilly takes ill, Andy takes over as umpire for the big Mayberry Little League game against Mount Pilot. The game is decided by a call at the plate when Opie slides into home and is called out by his father. The crowd erupts, and Andy gets an earful from town critics, who believe it was a bad call.  In the end, Andy is forgiven and we see that he actually got the call wrong…..or did he.  I, like Barney, have visual photographic proof that Opie was indeed safe…or was he?

On another topic, I heard about the gold truck in the episode “A Black Day for Mayberry” having pentagrams all over it.  I researched it and you know what….it sure does have pentagrams on it.  Is that an indication of so evil force at work in Mayberry?  Is Count Istvan Teleky at work?  You make the call.

This episode we are able to hear from four of our listeners.

Calvin called in to talk about how many touching scenes there are on The Andy Griffith Show.  We all know that TAGS is funny but we often forget just how much the show pulled at our hearts with episodes like Opie the Birdman or Mr. McBeevee.  The writers were amazing in that they could make us laugh one week and then tear up the next. Calvin also mentioned what he thought was a blooper in “Cousin Virgil” and we’ll clear that up

Dick tells us that all Mayberry fans should get a copy of Mayberry 101 so they can learn even more wonderful facts about why the writers of TAGS did what they did during episodes.

Gary  noticed a strange and curious happening that involves Gomer’s tie and Mr. Weaver.

And lastly, we hear from Michael who shares his love of our podcast and Mayberry.

Thank all of them for calling and thank you for taking time to visit with them, and me, during this trip to Mayberry.

Two Chairs No Waiting 232: Touch of the Pip

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:18:02

Back on TCNW #230 I mentioned finding several letters from TAGS writer Harvey Bullock.  Harvey wrote 32 episodes of TAGS and I have several wonderful letters he wrote to me answering questions that fans had asked him and writer Everett Greenbaum.

This episode we’ll find out exactly what is the “pip” and other things like what is Pygmalion and what does it have to do with The Andy Griffith Show.  See….you really do learn things from Mayberry.

I know you’ll enjoy the show.

I was going through my collection of Mayberry stuff recently looking for items that might be of interest to fans of The Andy Griffith Show (TAGS) when I found several letters from Harvey Bullock.  Fans may already know that Harvey wrote 32 episodes of TAGS.  What you may not know is he was a member in good standing of the “Who’s Been Messin’ Up the Bulletin Board?” (WBMUTBB) Chapter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC).

As a member of WBMUTBB, Harvey would often see questions related to episodes that he had written and he would offer answers to those question.  At times, the questions were about episodes that fellow writer Everett Greenbaum had written and Harvey would take the time to go see Everett and get the answers from him.

Let’s hear what these wonder writers have to share with us and get some of the back story of Mayberry.

Listener Jerry from Cullman, AL called in with a voice mail related to a “strange and curious happening” that occurred during The Andy Griffith Show episode “A Black Day for Mayberry.”  I began to look into the events that happened throughout that episode and I have determined that  Count Istvan Teleky may, indeed, have been traveling through Mayberry in November of 1963 (when the episode was originally aired).

We see coats going from dry to wet and back to dry in seconds.  Entire men disappearing or changing their appearance right before our eyes.  Pants having gas on them…and then they don’t.  There is certainly something afoot and we’ll get to the root of it in this episode of Two Chairs.

Thanks to Jerry for shining a light on this episode of The Twilight Zone…err…I mean “The Andy Griffith Show.”
