Storyline

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 Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

Sergeant Carter was a Korean War veteran. See more »

Goofs

When wearing uniforms with ribbons, Carter often wears an Army Good Conduct Medal ribbon (which is awarded for serving at least 2 years or one year in combat). This is probably an homage to actor Frank Sutton's WWII Army service. However, he does not wear a Marine Corps Good Conduct Ribbon, which is authorized for 3 years of active service. As a Gunnery Sergeant and Drill Instructor, he would have served over 3 years active as a Marine - hence, earning the award. See more »

Quotes

Sgt. Carter: Pyle. My old grandmother could do better than that.
Gomer Pyle: Well, bless her heart.

fun show from the 60's
23 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I ve always enjoyed "Gomer Pyle" Frank Sutton played Vince Carter so well..certainly one of the great supporting actors in television. Of course the situations Gomer got into were a bit unbelievable,but after all it was escapist TV in he 60's.

The first season of theshow will be released in December with commentaries and some extras including a clip from the Jim Nabors Hour,which also starred Ronnie Schell and Frank Sutton.

One of the reviewers mentioned Ronnie Schell was with the show the entire run. He was not in the 1967-68 season. He starred in a short lived sitcom with Joby Baker "Good Morning World" He did return in 1968 as a corporal for the remainder of the series.
