A fellow fan of The Andy Griffith Show, Matthew Morgan, contacted recently to tell me that he’d seen something special while watching Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C.  This is certainly “inside baseball”, so to speak but big Mayberry fans will remember and hopefully enjoy our trivial meanderings through the world of Mayberry, NC.

In the season 7 episode of The Andy Griffith Show “Barney Comes to Mayberry”, yeah..it is color but stick with me, Barney Fife returned to Mayberry and happens to be on the same train with Teena Andrews, a Mayberry native returning to town for the premiere of her new Hollywood movie.

Teena’s publicity man learns she used to date Barney back when she was known as Irene Flogg so he arranges for Barn to escort her to the premiere.

Now that you’re up to speed on who Teena Andrews is, you’ll want to give a listen to find out how Teena shows up in the Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. season 4 episode called “Change Partners.”

I also want to mention Movie’s for the Blind where you can download and listen to, currently, 4 episodes of TAGS like they are audio books.  I think you’ll enjoy it and it’s a great service for those Mayberry fans who are visually impaired.

    Allan, I think you and Matthew have hit a new high point in “trivial trivialities” with the Teena Andrews movie poster. I looked at the screen captures you posted on Facebook, and I think it’s kind of funny that they chose to put the title “Mountain Girl” on a poster that features a woman in a bathing suit with palm trees in the background!

    Allan, are the screen captures still available mentioned here?

    Movies for the blind is very interesting. It is interesting to hear the stage directions while listening to the scenes.

    The images are still there on the Facebook fan page in album TCNW 79.

    I was watching this episode on me tv and the movie poster caught my eye, so I googled Teena to see if she was a real person and ended up here. Don’t I have a lot to do,,
