Mayberry in The Land of the Giants
1 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't remember the name of the miniature town from this episode, but it should have been Mayberry, NC. I missed a lot of the episodes when LOTG was originally on so I began recording them when ALTV started airing the series. My first episode watched was this one and couldn't believe it when the miniature town turned out to be Mayberry. The courthouse and many other familiar buildings were readily seen. Fitzhugh was even banging on Andy's front door. One of the women in the cast brought a dress out of a dress shop that was Floyd's Barber Shop. This made this episode really neat to watch. I am still trying to get the episode of Star Trek "Miri" recorded because of it's location being Mayberry.
