The Taylors return to Mayberry after their trip to Hollywood and it turns out that Aunt Bee has had quite good fortune. It seems she appeared on a quiz show and won several thousand dollars worth of prizes. Bee is excited at all of the new things she's won, especially a new full length mink coat. She ever so slightly puts on airs but soon some of her friends, like Clara Johnson, become jealous and start to avoid her. Andy gets a bit of a surprise when he gets a visit from the IRS telling him that they owe over $1000 in taxes on the prizes won. Aunt Bee has a solution to this and her own problem.

Did You Know?


When the taxes on Bee's game show prizes have to be paid, she sells all of them except the TV set and her garbage disposal. Those she kept. Then, just nine weeks later in episode #19, Lost and Found, Bee believes she lost Aunt Martha's antique pin and ends up filing a $275 insurance claim. When the check arrives Andy encourages her to spend some of it on a garbage disposal. She agrees and replies by saying, "I did hate giving up that one I won in the Hollywood contest". See more »
