Storyline

Everyone in Mayberry is excited when a Wild West show comes to town. Everyone likes the show and its promoter Fred Gibson but the real draw is Clarence Earp Dempsey, a direct descendant of the legendary U.S. Marshall, Wyatt Earp. The show begins to have a negative impact on Opie and some of his friends however when they take some of shows slogans - like the best man is a fighting man - just a little too much to heart. Andy tries to get Gibson to tone it down but Dempsey ends up challenging him to a duel. Andy has to do some quick thinking to settle it all amicably. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

No actual male Earps, who carried the surname, survived beyond that of Wyatt's own half-nephews, even though Andy claims to have a book of all descendants of Wyatt Earp (even though he produces said book to disprove a charlatan, anyway). Despite the fact Wyatt Earp had six male siblings, only one of them, his half-brother, Newton, had any male offspring - Wyatt Clyde and Virgil Edwin. Neither of them had any male offspring, themselves, thus ending the 'Earp' name completely and utterly across all manner of siblings descended from Wyatt and his brothers. Separately, Virgil Edwin Earp lived until November of 1959 (the last male namesake to carry the name) and he had occasionally worked within the film and television industry. See more »
