For the last several years there has been a Mayberry tribute artist for the character of “Big” Maude Tyler (a.k.a. Ralph Henderson). What many of you may not know is that Big Maude is portrayed by the same person who performs as the tribute artist for Otis Campbell. That’s right, Ken Junkin is Otis and Big Maude. That’s the actor of the man.
We get to hear about Ken’s experience purchasing the shoes need to portray the convict at large and how the ladies in the shoe store reacted to his purchase.
The conversation with Ken was recorded following the Mayberry Comes to Westminster event held in April 2012. Several of the tribute artist and Mayberry fans were sitting in the lobby of the hotel enjoying some good fellowship with fellow Mayberry fans and I encouraged Ken to tell his story.
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.
