Did these things happen in The Twilight Zone or Mayberry?

Both shows proved "timeless as infinity."

The Twilight Zone and The Andy Griffith Show each had their own approach, but both shows put a spotlight on man's best intentions. One just got way more dramatic about it than the other.

Think you can tell the difference between ordinary Mayberry mischief and the more complex moral grounds explored in The Twilight Zone?

See if you can pick the correct show every time. We suspect it may be harder than you think, so try and score 10/12 or better! Good luck!

Missed #5 and #11.
#2 is portrayed wrong.
Opie didn't learn a tough lesson about charity.
It was the adults who learned a lesson about being humble, and what constitutes charity.

I got number 9 wrong, but I shouldn't have!
On the Andy Griffith show there was an episode ("Stranger in Town") in which a man had heard about Mayberry from a friend (who grew up in Mayberry) description and he decided to make Mayberry his "hometown", before he ever saw it in person.
He knew everyone in town, and Mayberry was just exactly as he "remembered" it to be.
I call foul!

Call foul, all you want.
Before you do, however, take a look at #12.

#2 isn't completely correct. It's not the child who learns the tough lesson, it's the dad (Opie only donated 3 cents because he saves his money to buy a girl a coat she needs.)

12/12. I know less than nothing about Mayberry, but TZ is my favorite show of all time.
12/12. These are both among my favorite shows of all time.

11/12! I really thought 11 was Jessbelle! "It's not fair, it's just not fair!" BTW, Ron Howard and George Linsley are the only Mayberry residents to enter the Twilight Zone. Ron's episode was Walking Distance [Question 9] and George was I Am The Night Color Me Black, where he played Goober's evil twin...LOL!!

12/12. This quiz seems eerily familiar, I know MeTV occasionally recycles/repackages quizzes. Or maybe I'm just zoning out.

They did this with Gilligan's island, maybe that confused you!

I searched the MeTV quizzes above and on January 24, 2018 the site ran a photo quiz titled "Are These Townspeople in Mayberry or The Twilight Zone?" De De De De Deja Vu all over again.
