I love the old Andy Griffith shows. Although it took artistic license with the small town theme, there was once a time when America was a lot like Mayberry, especially in the South. That America is gone now, never to return, but it's nice to look back and see how it used to be. As America sinks into the third world and becomes darker, more people will appreciate this TV series, if it makes it that long.
Anyway, I figured I'd start with some scenes featuring Asa, one of my favorite guest characters on the show. This is from The Bank Job Episode,Originally broadcast on December 24, 1962. Barney has been watching Glen Ford G-Man movies and decides to tighten up security.
Asa, clean those bullets!
This is Classic Barney. The Shoplifters, originally broadcast in March 2, 1964. The mannequin scene near the end of the clip is hilarious! Asa, the Rip Van Winkle night guard!
