I’m going to try and do something different for a while. I’ve started to do this before but always faded off on it and didn’t follow through. We’re going to try and talk about one episode of The Andy Griffith Show most every week followed by some trivia and then talk about some cast birthdays.
That’s the plan but, we’ll see how well the plan survives the year. ha ha
This episode we start with the first episode of The Andy Griffith Show which is called The New Housekeeper. It first aired on October 3, 1960 and started everything that we still celebrate to this day.
NOTE: During this episode I erroneously reported that a publicity photo of a young Frances Bavier is seen on the wall of the Taylor living room as Andy walks from the kitchen to the front door. It will be seen in several first season episodes. As pointed out by Randy Turner in his fantastic collection of essays, Mayberry Firsts, the picture is in fact a print of the painting Child With An Apple by the French artist of the 18th century Jean-Baptiste Greuze.
We play some Mayberry Trivia to see how we can do, just for fun.
Finally, we check how which cast members have birthdays between January 1st and 19th to remember them all with smiles and joy.
