Trivia

A victim of the infamous rural purge in 1971 along with The Beverly Hillbillies (1962), Hee Haw (1969), Green Acres (1965) and the The Ed Sullivan Show (1948). These shows were perceived by then CBS executive Fred Silverman to only appeal to people who lived in rural areas and older people, so he decided to cancel them even though they were all still hugely popular at the time.

A Wonderful Show And A Classic In It's Own Right
25 November 2007 | by (Hollywood, California) – See all my reviews

I grew up on the Mayberry shows. They're along the best shows ever created for television and everything since has been pale in comparison to warmth, charm, and responsibility.

The Andy Griffith Show was a hard act to follow but Ken Berry and company followed through just fine.

It's the cast and the stories that taught morals and responsibility like it's predecessor that makes this show remarkable. CBS should run it again just to set our moral compass right.

Buddy Foster did a great job. Same with everyone on the cast who are now legendary and beloved. The scripts, the directing and storytelling just what the doctor ordered.

When the rural shows were pulled off television our country took a moral nosedive.

We need more shows like this.
