How well do you know the very first episode of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.?

The Marine Corps took a little getting used to for the beloved Mayberry mechanic.

In some ways, the pilot episode of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. was actually an episode of The Andy Griffith Show. A season four Andy Griffith episode tells the story of how Gomer went from Mayberry to the Marine Corps. But the actual first episode of the spinoff came a few months later in the fall of 1964.

“Gomer Overcomes the Obstacle Course” gives a great introduction to the friction between Gomer and his exasperated drill instructor Sgt. Carter. It also shows how Gomer can remain optimistic and endear himself to the right people, which even makes Sgt. Carter look good!
