I like when Barney shows his sling shot tricks to Opie and has one from behind his back called behind the "barn." The building or the character?
10/10 great episode.

Probably my least favorite episode.

9/10 I'd rather take the whipping from Andy than hearing the baby birds call for their mother. Andy knew what he was doing. Also Aunt Bea what in tarnation is the Pip?

Did anyone notice the laugh track was removed for this episode?

This episode is a horrible one. The way he chose to discipline Opie was beyond cruel. He did not do that on purpose. He was already heartbroken about it. But then he was left to hear those birds cry all night long?.Way too cruel.😢

Not sure why you think that Andy was cruel. A whipping would make it all about Opie in his mind and it would soon be forgotten. Being forced to hear those birds suffering made Opie decide to be responsible for his actions and take over the care and feeding of those baby birds. That lesson impacted on Opie's character for the rest of his life.

10/10. Tell you how I got 10/10. The raccoon told the squirrel, the squirrel told the birds, the birds told my wife and my wife told me.

Don't know why, but this isn't one of my favorites.

I think I like the quiz more than the episode.
#6. "He has to eat the dead bird."

10/10!
Way to go! In my previous post I forgot my score 9/10. That episode gets to me. But I like when Andy tells Opie “But don’t the trees sound nice and full”. That’s why I love TAGS. I wish the world had more of Andy Griffith. Very poignant.

I always get a little teary eyed when I see this episode. When I was a kid I was practicing my batting swing in the backyard when a little gopher popped up his head near me. I picked up a stone and tossed it near him to scare him off and it landed on his head. After he didn’t move, I went inside inconsolable. My mom saw that something was wrong and asked me what was the matter. I told her what had happened and instead of laughing she went outside and picked him up and gave him a decent burial. She didn’t make fun of me, but did say I was too innocent for this world. That was forty years ago. Since then I have served in the Navy, done a myriad of things that involve protecting the welfare of our country, but I still remember taking the life of one of God’s creatures. I hope that the little fella is resting peacefully.
When I was about 2 years old I was helping my parents in the garden and accidentally cut a worm in half with a little shovel. I cried the whole day. My mother told me it was ok, the worm would survive and become 2 worms, but my brutish father said I was a cry baby, and my mom answered him with "No he's just sensitive you could learn a thing or two from your son!" I'll be 60 this year and still very sensitive to animals and helping them whenever and however I can.
You are a nice and sensitive person. The world could use more folks like you!🙂

Good mom.

I don’t know if you’re kidding or not, but my Mom was good, I am so thankful that I inherited many of her traits, as opposed to my father who would have told me that I was a wuss. My mom never said a word about it, and at first I thought she thought it was insignificant, but in hindsight she was saving me from total humiliation from a man who thought it was ok to kill a cat.

Nope, I would never kid about something like that. Your mom handled that situation beautifully.
