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

Camp Henderson, the setting for most episodes, is loosely based on Camp Pendleton in California. Camp Pendleton is, however, a much larger military installation than one would gather from the modest back lot simulation used for shooting purposes. 100,000 marines and civilian personnel are presently stationed at Camp Pendleton, and no commanding officer of Camp Pendleton has ever held a rank lower than that of lieutenant general.

Sgt. Carter is listed as having won the WWII Victory Medal. Yet in the show it is stated that he has been a marine for 14 or 16 years. Since the show started in 1964, he would have joined the marines sometime after 1948, too late for the WWII medal. See more »
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.
