Andy Griffith Show, The: The Complete Series
Down-home humor and an endearing cast of characters helped to make The Andy Griffith Show run for eight seasons in prime time. Widower Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith) divides his time between raising his young son, Opie (Ron Howard), and his job as sheriff (and Justice of the Peace) of the sl--py North Carolina town, Mayberry. Andy and Opie live with Andy's Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), who serves as a surrogate mother to both father and son. Andy's nervous cousin, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), is his deputy sheriff whose utter incompetence is tolerated because Mayberry is virtually crime-free.
Situated in North Carolina, Mayberry may be small and serene, but make no mistake - there are plenty of comic escapades afoot, revolving around the town's humble sheriff's department, the community's colorful residents, and the diverse visitors who are just passing through. The Andy Griffith Show's down-home humor, stellar ensemble cast and fondly remembered episodes made the series one of the most beloved situation comedies in the history of television.
Come and re-visit everybody's favorite small town of Mayberry in the third season of The Andy Griffith Show, featuring the debut of Jim Nabors as the affable Gomer Pyle. Harkening back to a time when things were simpler, The Andy Griffith Show has endured as one of television's best-loved classics. Watch s widower sheriff Andy Taylor does his best to hold the town together, despite the best efforts of his bumbling deputy Barney and the pressures of raising his young son Opie. Helping him as ever is the indomitable Aunt Bee, who through everything could always be counted on to raise everyone's spirits with a slice of hot apple pie and a smile.
Named as "one of the greatest television shows of all time" by TV Guide, The Andy Griffith Show featured the adventures of some of the most well-known and beloved characters in television history.

Now you can take home another classic season of The Andy Griffith Show, featuring 30 more episodes of the wholesome and irreverent humor that entertained audiences and critics alike all over the world. Season Six includes many firsts for the little town of Mayberry. It was the first season to be aired in color and it also marked the first of several re-appearances by Don Knotts as the loveable deputy Barney Fife, which helped garner him his 3rd EmmyÂ® Award for the role.
By all accounts, this was the most successful season yet for the critically acclaimed family show. It was the top-rated half-hour of the 1966-'67 season and earned two EmmyÂ® Awards for the supporting work of Don Knotts and Frances Bavier (as beloved Aunt Bee).
