> Description 
Andy Griffith plays Andy Taylor a widowed sheriff with a son (Opie) in the small sleepy North Carolina town of Mayberry. They live with Andy's Aunt Bee, who takes care of them. Andy's deputy is his bumbling but neurotically hilarious cousin Barney Fife. Most of the story centers around the interactions of the characters as there is little crime in Mayberry. Subtle philosophical moral tales lead to the success of the show.

Several spin-off series came from The Andy Griffith Show. Jim Nabors' Gomer Pyle character started there. Don Knotts, who played Barney Fife, had his own variety show called, what else, The Don Knotts Show. Other shows, "Mayberry R.F.D." , "Andy of Mayberry" and "Return to Mayberry" also followed. Little Opie was played by the now-famed director Ron Howard (also of Happy Days).
