How popular are your opinions about Sheriff Andy Taylor?

Who should Andy have married? And should he have told Aunt Bee the truth about her pickles?

Andy Taylor sure (or as he would say s-u-u-u-u-u-ure) is a likable fellow and fantastic father. The Andy Griffith Show proved that time and time again. 

But nobody is perfect. There are times you perhaps questioned the Sheriff's decision making. You might even think he married the wrong woman.

That made us wonder. We'd like to see your opinions on some of Andy's actions. Answer the questions below — and see how your take compares to other fans.

I remember "Ellie" when she was on "Father Knows Best" as a teenager.

Andy should have married her - smart AND pretty.

I thought Andy should have married Miss Peggy. I can still hear Floyd saying...”Mr and Mrs Andy Taylor”. Best show ever...love em all.

I liked Ellie better too! Helen was Opie's teacher. I only agreed with about 60% on the survey and I have seen almost all the black and white episodes. I would like to see more of the color episodes shown the other 11 months of the year.

I love this show! It always makes me happy watching it, no matter how many times I watch the same episodes. Thank you Andy, Barney, Opie, Aunt Bee, and every other cast member! xxoxoxo

I can't believe all the votes that Helen Crump got. I just never cared for her. Maybe it was that unattractive hairstyle. I liked her with Steve McQueen in "The Blob", though. Now Thelma Lou was a cute girl. Leave it to Barney.

(Question #3 - Should Andy have kept MORE mementos and pictures of his first wife and Opie's "Maw" around the house?) What do they mean by MORE? All of reruns and as many times that I have seen each and every one of them, I have never seen one memento or picture of Opie's mother/Andy's first wife. They never have even spoken her name, nor even how she died. Nor did they every visited her grave. The only thing we know is Opie had a mother and she died (Period).
Maybe they divorced. She got bored with small town life and escaped to New York, leaving Andy and Opie in the dust. That would explain the lack of pictures.
The description of the show calls Andy a Widower.

I think Andy Griffith himself said something like the show effectively ended when Don Knotts left, that the show was never the same withput Barney Fife. I totally agree.

I liked Peggy or Karen. Peggy was a nurse, good with Opie, a good cook, but he and Karen had a lot in common. Ellie was ok, but not a 'country' gal. I didn't care much for Helen. She was good as a teacher, but not for him to marry. IMO

Mary Simpson was also played by Sue Ann Langdon. Personally, I liked Julie Adams better.

Julie Adams played Mary Simpson, the county nurse. She was in "The Creature From the Black Lagoon". Her white swimsuit made her a fanboy favorite.
