Gomer Pyle was a sweet but not too smart Marine from Mayberry, North Carolina who was stationed at Camp Henderson near Los Angeles, California. Gomer's innocence, naivete and low-key demeanor often got him into trouble, most frequently at the hands of his loud-mouthed superior, Sgt. Carter. Duke, Frankie, Lester and Larry were some of Gomer's pals and fellow enlisted men at Camp Henderson, and Lou Anne Poovie was his sometimes girlfriend. Written by

The pilot, which aired as the season four finale of The Andy Griffith Show (1960), placed the base as Camp Wilson in North Carolina. However, when the series was launched the location was changed to Camp Henderson in California. See more »
Sergeant Carter's rank is E-7, or "Gunnery Sergeant." As a Marine Gunnery Sergeant, he would be called either "Gunnery Sergeant Carter", or "Gunny Carter," not "Sergeant Carter." See more »
i'm in the service also and the last person was wrong on his commits. after seeing the stuff i've seen in the navy and marine corp (no offence to the marines ) i would totally believe that show the other person was talking about even sergant bilko is more believeable now. if you know anything about gomer pyle they made the show funny but it did have some real points to it the did not intend to make fun of the marines they intended to have fun with the marines.i wish this show would of lasted well into the 70's and possible the 80's 4 star in my book.
