I remember watching this show in the early '80s
23 June 2005 | by (Saco, Maine) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show in the early '80s. Good show. I barely remember watching it in the'60s. Back then, I was on the road a lot. I used to travel in the summer and I didn't watch that much TV. The show was about Howard Dodson, the newly elected city councilman of Mayberry, North Carolina, (Andy Griffith's home town of Mount Airy, North Carolina.) The series premiere had Andy Taylor married his long- time girlfriend Helen Crump. Howard has a son named Mike. Millie was the local waitress at the local diner and Emmett ran the local fix-it shop. He fixed everything. Unfortunately, it was cancelled by CBS because Fred Silverman, then the president of CBS, in his "infinite wisdom", thought that only old people in rural areas watched it.
