Trivia

As he walks onto the front porch just after the 20 minute mark, the Mr. Wheeler character is carrying a newspaper. Its headline is briefly visible and reads "KEATING SENDS SECRET MESSAGE TO FRIEND"; the credits list no one of that name. See more »

Enjoyable
18 October 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This show is about a supposed handyman who has come to town (Edgar Buchanan). At first he seems to work hard and for little money. He also seems quite smitten with Aunt Bee and vice-versa, but over time it becomes obvious that he's just a lazy good-for-nothing. Again and again, he promises to do things but repeatedly Andy is left doing the actual work. An interesting story and the first that acknowledges that Aunt Bee actually might have a sex drive! Well written and worth seeing though not a particularly funny one nor do you get to see Barney--two minuses. Still, it's memorable and worth seeing--and Buchanan is quite good in this unusual role.
