Do you know the old men of The Andy Griffith Show?

Recognize these elder fellers from Mayberry?

Mayberry was a place filled with folks of all sorts and sizes and ages. You have Aunt Bee's friends, Opie's pals, and many assorted old men. They were farmers, businessmen, and just plain oddballs. 

It takes a true Andy Griffith Show expert to recognize them all. See if you can attach a name to these elder characters!

Watch The Andy Griffith Show on MeTV!

Weeknights at 8 PM & 8:30 PM

I didn't know any of them.....but I dumb-lucked into 3/ absolute worst score EVER on one of these MeTV quizzes. Obviously, I don't watch the Andy show but I thought...."Eh, no guts no glory", so I gave it a shot. I had the guts.....but I came nowhere close to any glory! C'est la vie.

You got 14 out of 14 - Things are looking up! Nice work! Had to think about #9 but after a minute was able to get it right. The others were fairly easy.
