Goofs

Andy acknowledges to Barney that Mayberry is not on a direct route from Denver to Fort Knox (Kentucky), but says that the Treasury agents said that they are deliberately taking an indirect path because anyone intending to disrupt or intercept the shipment would set a trap or ambush along the direct route.

Laugh Track on TVLand version
9 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They did use a laugh track in this episode. At least they did on version they aired on TVLand on 5.9.07.

Perhaps the DVD version is different. I have no idea what the original version was like. I don't specifically remember this particular episode "A Black Day for Mayberry" when it was originally broadcast on network television.

I have nothing to compare this version to. Perhaps the version on DVD had the soundtrack removed to enhance the dramatic effect of the program. Although there are portions of the show that deserve laughter

  • specifically those scenes involving Barney spilling the beans and


Gomer trying to act serious.

Maybe some other viewer can shed some light on this.
