Storyline

Wally's gas station is losing business to a rival in Mount Pilot that has a cash giveaway contest going on and he gets Wally's permission to have a similar lure to bring in and keep their customers. It works and soon people are lining up but he's made a serious error and the printer has included a whopping $200 prize. As luck would have it, the prize is won by Floyd the barber, one of the critics who goaded Goober into having the contest in the first place. When Goober says he can't pay, Floyd says he's sold them a bill of goods and Andy has no choice but to take action, one he hopes will lead Floyd to be more reasonable. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

In early season 6, Aunt Bee wins several thousand dollars worth of prizes on a TV quiz show while the Taylors are on vacation in Hollywood. Then at the very end of season 7, just before and then again just after she wins a mere $5 cash prize in Goober's "Grab Bag for Cash" filling station contest, she twice states that she's never won anything before in her life. How quickly she forgot about the new refrigerator, mink coat, and other valuable prizes she had won only the year before. See more »

Farewell to Floyd
20 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Goober's Contest" is one of the above-average (not the best but certainly not the worst) episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. The interesting anomaly in which a California license plate is clearly obvious on one of the cars at Goober's gas station is only one little diverting facet. The element of this episode that I found the most compelling and also the most heartbreaking is the fact that it is the last time Howard McNear is seen. Most fans know that he had a stroke several years into the series which forced him always to appear either seated, or propped up against something. His speech also deteriorated, and in this episode it is heart-rending to hear him painstakingly deliver his lines. Just to compare, I went back and looked at the first episode he was in, and the difference is startling. So sad to see this fine and talented actor deteriorate before our eyes.
