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.
In many episodes, Barney refers to Andy Taylor as "Ange". That was Don Knotts' real nickname for Andy Griffith, shortening Andy and Griffith into "Ange".
Pa, just what can you do with a grown woman?
In Andy's house there is a short window to the left of the fireplace and in some episodes there is either a long window or a glass door.
During their original airings, episodes ran exactly 24 1/2 minutes (not counting commercial time). Most syndication prints now run 22 minutes to allow for additional commercial time. Some of the missing material (which includes the episode epilogues and other miscellaneous scenes) has been restored to VHS and DVD releases of various "Andy Griffith" episodes.
