Widower Sheriff Andy Taylor, and his son Opie, live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry, North Carolina. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney Fife.
Many of the shows featured Andy sitting on the porch, by the fireplace in the living room, and even in the jail/courthouse relaxing by playing his 1956 Martin D-18. At times he would play music with The Darling family, who were played by the well-known bluegrass group, The Dillards. In 2004 Martin Guitars came out with an Andy Griffith tribute model.
Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their neighbor! Repeat! Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their neighbor!
The badges that Andy and Barney wear are the 6 pointed star, yet the shoulder patch on their uniform shows a 5 pointed star. It would be assumed that the badge indicating they are a sheriff or deputy would be the same as the shoulder patch indicating they are with the sheriff's office.
Some DVD sets of public domain episodes have the classic theme song replaced by generic music due to copyright disputes.
