Dated Doesn't Begin To Describe It
17 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

Gomer has to paint the communications van to camouflage it. Three hippies (one of them being Rob Reiner) show up and paint daisies on one side. They then move the van without telling Gomer, getting him in trouble with Sgt. Carter.

When it is all over and the van is returned, the conclusion is the hippie getups were a disguise, preventing the red team in the war games from finding them and it worked! Along the way, we get Gomer singing Blowing In The Wind with the hippies.

Dated doesn't begin to describe this. The inconsiderate behavior the hippies had toward their 'new friend' by moving property he was entrusted with shows why hippie behavior didn't last and was nothing but a meaningless fad.

It's also rather obvious why this episode signals this show was truly on its way out.

While I was only 3 in '69, I doubt I recall this episode airing in primetime. My memory may have been sharper when it re-aired, but I'm certain I recall it in an early '70s rerun during the day.
