RIP Sherriff Andy Taylor

Postby kg » 03 Jul 2012, 11:32


Andy Griffith passed away at 7 AM this morning. He certainly made many contributions to the early days of television. Sheriff Andy Taylor of "The Andy Griffith Show" (Ron Howard got his start right there in Mayberry as well as Jim Nabors, who got his start on that show. Don Knotts was most famous for his role as Barney Fife.), and Matlock, among other roles and appearances.

I loved the country style humor of Andy Griffith. Among the first 45rpm disks I purchased was a bit where he describes football as a country boy who never saw the game before. It was hilarious and I was in my late teens when I thought so. I just saw Beaver Cleaver yesterday as my wife was watching TV. I'd not doubt that Andy too is still running around Mayberry, somewhere.

"Gee, Ward. you were a little hard on the Beaver last night." I doubt that was funny when I watched way back when. There were so many shows that I grew with that probably taught me good from bad (Superman, Rin Tin Tin, Father Knows Best, Ozzie and Harriet, Donna Reed Show, Andy Griffith, etc.). We have come a long way (not necessarily for the better).

Yes, and I shudder to contemplate some of their replacements! :?

Sorry, I've never heard of him, but obviously he was well known in the US. RIP.
