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!
