Springboard to the Andy Griffith Show
13 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I only saw this episode once on its original airing in 1960.

Danny Thomas and his family are driving through a small town and are arrested by the sheriff, Andy Griffith. I believe the charge was speeding and Andy throws Danny and the family behind bars. They get out of jail then back in jail a number of times for different charges. The episode was done in a comic way, poking fun at small town sheriffs and speed traps.

The next year, the Andy Griffith show was born. Because Ron Howard is also in this episode may be evidence that the Andy Griffith Show was already in the planning stages at the time of this airing.
