This specific episode of the show immediately led to the creation of The Andy Griffith Show (1960). Three guest-stars were Andy Griffith, Ron Howard and Frances Bavier. Andy Griffith's role was Sheriff, Andy Taylor and Ron Howard's role was Opie Taylor. Their character roles remained the same, on the show it created. However, Frances Bavier's role was different, Henrietta Perkins, before she became Mayberry's Beatrice Taylor and Aunt Bee. See more »
