Can you tell the difference between Andy Taylor and Barney Fife?

See if you can tell the Sheriff and the Deputy apart.

Sheriff Andy Taylor and Deputy Barney Fife were the best of friends. They are also two of the greatest characters in television history. But they sure had their personality differences.

What is a "1954 Fold"? Do you mean "Ford"?

The last question: "He bought a 1954 Fold from Myrt "Hubcaps" Lesh for $300."
In 1954, the Ford Motor Company came out with the Ford Fold. They sold fewer Ford Folds than Edsels!

I got that one from the episode about Sam the farmer. When Barney was sitting with Sam, he mentioned he helped whip the dredded Hun. Barney said he was in charge of the library on some base in New Jersey...LOL

21/21.πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ Fun fact related to #18.Barney called Andy "ANGE" because it was Don Knotts real life nickname for Andy Griffith.It was just a form of "Andy and "Griffith" connected together.

17/21! Missed 2, 5, 17 and 20! Wouldn't it had been freaky if a Mayberry case inspired an actual "Law & Order"...LOL!!
16/21. I also missed 20, along with 13, 8, 2, and 1. Barney should issue me a ticket not only for getting as many wrong as I did, but for getting Andy's middle name wrong!
Well Stephanie, you say you're so smart, but I knew Andy's middle name, his home address, and his second son AJ!
I never said I was a brainiac. You're the one who keeps saying I am. I am only average, {at times, I consider myself below average.} But still, average.
