On TCNW #480 we featured an interview with Rance Howard, the father of Ron and Clint. During that interview Rance mentioned how Ron got the role of Opie. Ronnie was optioned to appear on a possible CBS series called “Barnaby and Mr. O’Malley” which would have conflicted with Ronnie being able to appear on The Andy Griffith Show. Aaron Ruben put in a second hold for Ronnie to be on The Andy Griffith Show if the other series didn’t sell.
What a different version of Mayberry we would have had if Ronnie hadn’t been Opie.
Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Sandy Kenyon.
