TCNW 674: Ellie for Council

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:46:58

I was watching the episode “Ellie for Council” today and it really got me thinking about what happens in this episode. I mean, at first glance it looks like an extremely sexist episode but if you stick with the episode until the end….something happens. A real lesson is taught. This from an episode filmed in 1960. A comedy television series delved into the topic of equality and by the end tried to teach us all a lesson.

This was really a one of kind type thing in 1960. A television sitcom looking at who women are treated in society. The small, rural town of Mayberry…in the end…realized and accepted that women should be treated as equals. Boy…it didn’t start that way but isn’t that what growth is all about. Sheriff Taylor, and the men of Mayberry, GREW during this 30 minutes of television.

This week’s installment of “Returning to Mayberry” by SpiritWalker is called, “Heart to Heart.”
