How are these Mayberry characters related?

Can you tell us how these 'Andy Griffith Show' folk are kin?


Have you seen enough of The Andy Griffith Show to consider yourself an honorary citizen of Mayberry? The beloved sitcom was populated with dozens of colorful characters. We met everyone from the mayor to the local sot. Because it was such a small town, many of the folks were related.

Let's see how well you remember these relations. To make it a little more challenging, we threw in a pinch of Mayberry R.F.D., too.

Good luck!

Watch The Andy Griffith Show on MeTV!

10 of 11. I missed #6, Opie's great-aunt Nora. Odd though, on the last several quizzes, it's always the #6 question that's been kickin' my backside! Oh Well, I do really enjoy the quizzes!

Here's a couple more: how is Gomer Pyle related to Denver Pyle (Briscoe Darling)? And what prominent US Marine figure did Sheriff Taylor make Sgt Carter believe Gomer was related to? Lastly, what connection, if any, is there between the Pyles of Mayberry and WWII journalist Ernie Pyle?
