In early April 2024, members of the Mayberry Chapter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) lead a group on a trip to the Los Angeles, California area. They visited major filming locations for TAGS including Franklin Canyon, Red Studios and the Desilu (Forty Acres) backlot. They also discovered other filming locations that haven’t, so far as anyone is aware, been identified before such as the baseball field where Opie’s Mayberry team played Mt. Pilot and the gas station location where the Taylors & Goober stopped for gas in “Goober and the Auto Show.” They were able to sit in the plane used when Aunt Bee learned to fly and to see where that episode was filmed, Whiteman Airport. They met up with several cast or crew members including Ruta Lee, Bruce Bilson, Leroy McNees and Joy Ellison. They also met with kids of cast and crew to include Dixie Griffith (Andy’s daughter), Andy Bullock (TAGS writer Harvey Bullock’s son), and Kit McNear (Howard “Floyd” McNear’s son).

The person responsible for locating and identifying previously unidentified location was Codie Sloan and we are so fortunate to have him sharing his first hand experience of this amazing trip. Codie wanted everyone to know he’s not trying to toot his own horn with his report but hopes that through it all listening or watching can share in the excitement he, and the others on the trip, experienced.

Thank you, Codie, for letting us all travel along with you virtually.

Stick around after the report for some Mayberry trivia and see how many questions you can answer.
