Storyline

No one is more surprised than Aunt Bee when the owner of a local TV station asks her to host a daily cooking show. He's been checking around town for the best cook available and there's a consensus that Aunt Bee is the right choice. She's a bit nervous at the prospect but is more concerned about who will take care of Andy and Opie and cook their meals. To make sure she doesn't change turn the opportunity down, Andy creates a fictitious cook who will come in every day. In fact, Andy is cooking their meals, to Opie's dismay. Aunt Bee soon catches on and decides to make things right. Written by garykmcd

Not enough cooks in the kitchen
18 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Hey, it's Don Keefer—the guy who winds up as a jack-in-the-box because he can't hold his liquor or his tongue over at the Twilight Zone.Didn't we also see him over on St. Benedict's Island trying to unload a ship in a bottle? The best thing about this episode is Ron Howard's comic chops, culminating in his hilarious outburst about food. In fact, just about every scene with him and Andy is a mini workshop on comic timing. Isn't it interesting how Goober's character has matured somewhat since his introduction as a monosyllabic simpleton in season 5? I like his sidewalk philosophy about how to evaluate the ripeness of tomatoes, and his basic goodness shines in the epilogue when he homes in on Aunt Bee's reason for giving up her cooking show.
