Storyline

The Mayberry Band looks forward to going to the State Capital for the annual state-wide band competition. The new mayor, however, thinks otherwise. He's heard the band and thinks they're not only the worst imaginable but a disgrace to the town. Andy talks him into listening to them just once more, but it only convinces the mayor more than ever not to let them go. Andy comes up with a plan. It just so happens that Freddy Fleet and his Band are passing through Mayberry. Andy twists their arm into helping them out. Written by garykmcd/edited by statmanjeff

Trivia

The Mayberry Town Council is shown discussing the decorations for the upcoming Apricot Blossom Festival. In reality, apricots don't grow well in North Carolina. They require careful management and don't consistently produce fruit. It's unlikely Mayberry would be celebrating apricots when the state produces nearly year round crops of peanuts, sweet potatoes and greens. See more »
