Laugh Track on TVLand version
9 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

They did use a laugh track in this episode. At least they did on version they aired on TVLand on 5.9.07.

Perhaps the DVD version is different. I have no idea what the original version was like. I don't specifically remember this particular episode "A Black Day for Mayberry" when it was originally broadcast on network television.

I have nothing to compare this version to. Perhaps the version on DVD had the soundtrack removed to enhance the dramatic effect of the program. Although there are portions of the show that deserve laughter - specifically those scenes involving Barney spilling the beans and Gomer trying to act serious.

Maybe some other viewer can shed some light on this.
