How many Mayberry character actors can you name?

You know Otis, Ernest, Briscoe and Helen, but who played them?

The Andy Griffith Show packed the fictional town of Mayberry with so many characters, it took some of television's most seasoned players to do the series justice.

That's why some Mayberry residents – even ones we only met a handful of times – remain just as memorable as the main cast.

Here, we've pulled a dozen memorable Mayberry characters and it's up to you to match each one to the correct actor. Good luck avoiding a citizen's arrest for making too many wrong choices!

Watch The Andy Griffith Show on MeTV!

Weeknights at 8 & 8:30, Sundays at 6 & 6:30 PM

It's Anita Corsaut, with no L for Number 8. And Charlene was better known as Maggie Peterson not Mancuso. And the forgot all about Hope Summers.
Actually, it’s Aneta Corsaut. No “i.”

You bring up Bernard Fox, who was only in three episodes, but leave out Hope Summers?? Aunt Bee's best frenemy?

Answered #11 correctly and got to thinking. Barney Fife...Gomer Pyle...Goober Pyle...yeah, all they needed was Colonel Crittendon (or Dr. Bombay, whichever you prefer).
