Widower Sheriff Andy and his son Opie live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry NC. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney.
This animated series followed the further adventures of the famous comedy duo, featuring Bud Abbott performing as himself (Lou Costello had died several years earlier). Most of the episodes centered around various far-fetched schemes to get rich quick, all of which inevitably failed miserably. Written by

Fine legacy for kids & kids of all ages to get a taste of A&C
The first time I saw these I was in middle-school (like 6th grade if I remember) being run (for me anyway) the first time (since they were prod. 20 years before I saw them in the late '60s and I was thrilled to see them and have been obsessed as to why they are no longer shown nor even on video (DVD or VHS!) Hanna-Barbara had a plethora of cartoon series and this is an unheralded gem that s/b released or at the very least re-surfacing on The Cartoon Network. A fine legacy of Abbott & Costello for kids & kids of all ages to get a taste of the great comic team. Although Lou's death nearly a decade earlier, Stu Irwin captures his spirit and Bud's gravelly trademark delivery is sharp & fun to see in action.
