The Andy Griffith Show Book by Ken Beck
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a wonderful book. Ken Beck and Jim Clark write this book as if the characters on the Andy Griffith Show were real live people with real lives. Of course, those of us who love the show feel that they are real. There are biographies of several of the shows main characters, a sort history of the town (Mayberry), lots of fun facts (like all of Barney's nicknames, Barney blarney (how is mispronounces words), Barney's songs, his letters, what he may say when he gets mad at Andy, etc.). There is a section listing all of the cops and robbers (Sheriffs, Deputy Sheriffs, State Police, Federal Agents, Detectives, Judges, Lawyers, Justices, Attorneys, Prisons, Organizations, Crooks, etc.). mentioned throughout the series. An interesting chapter deals with codes and cases in Mayberry.There are lots of quizzes that many people will not be able to past without a good study of the show. Lots of great pictures!!! A chapter listing the music lyrics from the show, songs like "Mayberry High Alma Mater," "My Hometown," etc. A list of cast credits. Episode Summaries. A Mayberry Town Directory and a Mt. Pilot Directory as well as Yellow Pages for both cities. A List of all the TAGS Rerun Watchers Club. And a top twenty 1983 and 1994 of favorite episodes.
If you are a fan of this show this a must book for you!
