Can you pass the Andy Griffith Show ''Pickle Story'' trivia challenge?

See if you can down these questions without choking!

Some folks declare it just about the finest episode of The Andy Griffith Show there is! Shucks, it sure is funny!

Aunt Bee shows her one major culinary failing in "The Pickle Story." She may whip up a delicious batch of chicken, but she can't pickle a cucumber to save her life. 

Barney, Andy and Opie don't have the heart to tell her. Aunt Bee wants to enter a canned-goods contest. High jinks ensue.

In The Andy Griffith Show Silver Anniversary Special in 1985, Don Knotts himself selected this as his favorite episode from the series. Hard to argue with that!

Let's see how well you remember it! It takes a Mayberry expert to get 10/14!

Only got 10 and out of 14 and I should have done better since I've seen that episode countless times! Can't believe I missed number one. Did she change her name?

I'm seeing that episode of dozen times if I've seen it once! Interesting quiz though.

* Didn't Bee ever taste her own pickles? ♣
Snowgirl1343 RedSamRackham 28 months ago
No she did not, she ate one of the store bought pickles that Andy and Barney had swapped out.

And she said they were very good.

HER NAME IS CLARA EDWARDS! You people marked it wrong and you are wrong. Plus, Aunt Bea made pickles twice. I hope you are counting the second batch.
WonderGeorge Peanut712 30 months ago
On the contrary - early in the series run, she is known as Clara Edwards Johnson; as the series continued, she would revert back to her maiden name, Clara Edwards.

Okay. I have an issue with the question about Clara's extra spice, it was not saffron!!! Anyway, idk who makes these up but they obviously don't get it.

I said allspice and got it correct

Anybody who gets a perfect score on this quiz has been watching entirely too many Andy Griffin episodes. 😀

Well I think I should have got the Clara Edwards question right but that would have only left me missing one

14 correct. 😊
Funny thing, in a previous quiz, ladies of Mayberry, they asked who won the pickle contest. They listed the answer as Clara EDWARDS.
Snowgirl1343 see4bs 28 months ago
And their right, she did win the pickle contest again. In the beginning of the episode she said that she had won 11 times in a row, so at the end of the episode she won again giving her 12 wins in a row.
