The Andy Griffith Show
Last month I posted a video featuring the opening theme song for The Andy Griffith Show. Today from Rebellion: Andy Griffith show is turning 50, which links to this article in the Charlotte Observer.When I was a child visiting my grandmother in Arizona, the TV would usually be on, and one of the shows that was broadcast on the local channels was The Andy Griffith Show (along with I Love Lucy, I Dream of Jeannie, and Hogan's Heroes). While the theme song was catchy, I was too young to understand the humor or to sit through the show. I think I'd view it differently now. Hardly any of these shows are seen in syndication now, though the "classics" may be broadcast on cable. I believe you can watch some episodes online at TVLand.
