Sad news today that Andy Griffith died. While I'm not old enough by quite a few years to have enjoyed The Andy Griffith Show in its original run, I grew up on the reruns. I still go through periods where I watch the show for a few weeks on whatever local channel is playing it. In fact I've been on such a kick this past month.
The theme for the show, famously whistled, did in fact have lyrics. Here is the man himself singing the theme to The Andy Griffith Show:
And if you're looking for an Andy Griffith film to dive into this evening, I suggest locating a copy of No Time for Sergeants (1958) a truly classic, family comedy, OR if you're in the mood for a slightly raunchier, comedy, his last film Play The Game should be right up your alley.
Anyone else fans of the show? Favorite episodes?
