Over the years we’ve had some fun playing Mayberry trivia here on the podcast. Some of the questions have been hard and some have been easy but this episode I wanted to have fun with you and the trivia questions.

All the answers to the questions will be “numbers.”  That’s why I called the episode, “Mayberry by the Numbers.”  I’m creative like that.

Sit back and put a bucket on your head so you can think better and let’s have fun with some Mayberry trivia.

This week we’re going to have some fun reviewing an article that was published on Answers.com.  It was called “10 Things You Didn’t Know About The Andy Griffith Show” but being Mayberry fans like you are, I changed the title to say things you “may not” know.

You’re going to enjoy learning, or hearing again, these fun facts about our hometown and the people we watch on TV every evening.

The last “fun” trivia here on the podcast was 13 episodes back so it’s time for more!

This trivia isn’t “easy” but I think they are fun….challenging but fun.

These questions come from the 2013 Mayberry Cruise trivia contest.  There were 22 questions in that contest and we covered the first 11 questions on episode 311 of Two Chairs No Waiting.  Go back and give that episode a listen if you enjoy trivia.

Go get your thinking bucket and have some Mayberry fun coming up with the answers to these trivia questions.

We haven’t done any “fun” trivia in more than 20 episodes.  We did do Mayberry Days trivia back in episode 299 but I’m not sure how “fun” that trivia is for most fans because we didn’t get more than one or two answers correct. Episode 284 was the last, what I call, “fun” trivia where normal fans of The Andy Griffith Show have a chance to actually answer the questions so here at the end of 2014 seemed like a good time to have fun.

These questions come from the 2013 Mayberry Cruise trivia contest.  There were 22 questions in that contest and we’re only going to cover the first 11 questions on this episode.  These aren’t as hard as Mayberry Days trivia but they are challenging.

So, sit back…put a thinking bucket on your head and we’ll have some Mayberry fun trying to get the answers to these trivia questions.

In episode 298, I gave you a run down of what happened at Mayberry Days 2014 last episode. From that episode I received requests to give you a test of your Mayberry IQ by presenting the 2014 Mayberry Days Trivia contest.  So this episode we’re going to run through the incredibly hard questions asked during the “Super Bowl of Mayberry Trivia.”   After you hear them, you’ll be surprised to know the winner got 16 points out of 22 possible.

Fans at Mayberry Days often ask, “Why are the questions so hard?”  Well the reason is that this is the “Jeopardy” of Mayberry Trivia.  It really *means* something to win and champions have the right to be proud of their title of Mayberry Days Trivia Champion!  There are several people who can compete at this level and actually have a chance to get *every* question right.

Every year, Kenneth Junkin works very hard to come up with questions to stump these trivial experts who are walking Mayberry computers.

Be sure to keep your own score to see how well you do compared to these experts. One or two answers right is a real accomplishment and you have a right to be happy with yourself so jump in where you can and hang on.  Let us hear how you did.

In the last episode of Two Chairs listener Randy Bewer provided us with a jewel of Mayberry history related to Howard “Floyd” McNear and this week he’s done it again.

Ever wonder how the mind of 10 year old Ronny Howard worked? Well thanks to the article Randy uncovered we get a glimpse into what was on his mind in January of 1965.

Next up we hear from Paul Mulik related to the song sung by the gypsies who visited Mayberry in the color episode, “The Gypsies.” Turns out that the gypsy melody we heard in the February 1966 episode had it origins well before The Andy Griffith Show ever hit the air.

So, in this episode you get history and trivia. Can you handle the fun?

The “trivia for fun” episodes have been a big hit with many of you so here’s 10 more fun Mayberry trivia questions.  These trivia questions come form a 1994 meeting of the “Mother Figure” chapter in Huntsville, AL.  Ten other questions from this chapter meeting were covered in episode 273 of this podcast if you’d like go bad and try your luck.

The questions are not too hard so I believe you’ll enjoy trying to get the answers.  I know just reading them made a smile come to my face.

Two Chairs No Waiting 276: Was He Out?

Two Chairs No Waiting

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.
