Are you an Andy Griffith Show season one expert?

Take a look back on that first year in Mayberry.


Some shows take a while to find their footing. For many series, that first season is a real proving ground and the first chance to work out what makes the project special. That wasn't the case, though, for The Andy Griffith Show. The show and its principal characters had been worked through several times before the program aired. TAGS was off to the races right away.

But maybe the details of season one get a little... lost in the shuffle for you? We hope not because you'll need all the memory you can conjure to beat this quiz. Let other fans know your score in the comments section below!

Walter Baldwin. He was the first Floyd the barber. I just remember him from one episode: "Stranger in Town" the episode where the stranger Ed Sawyer who arrives in Mayberry seems to know about everybody in town.
