How well do you really know Opie Taylor?

These details are as small as first-season Opie!

On Now
MeTV Presents the Best of Opie Taylor
Up Next:

Ron Howard stole our hearts as Opie Taylor on The Andy Griffith Show. Howard credited much of his future success to this early role. In an interview with PopEater in 2010, Howard said, "[Andy Griffith] treated me really well, but he made it a learning experience, not in a stern, taskmaster kind of a way, but I was really allowed a real insight into creativity and how things work and why some scenes were funny and others weren't. That insight has served me really well over the years. Andy was really kind to me, always playful and fun, but, by the same token, he wanted to get the work done." 

Howard appeared most of the episodes of the show, an impressive run for someone growing up in the business. 

We want to see how well you know America's favorite rock-skipping, bike-riding, question-asking son. Can you answer all of these questions about Opie Taylor? Good luck!

Well, didn’t do so hot. Missed all answers involving color episodes. Don’t watch them. They’re terrible. Rather have a root canal than watch an episode centered around Howard Sprague.

* I was not a big fan of the B&W or color Aunt Bee episodes particularly the bed jacket one! B-b-but Howard the comedian was a pretty good color episode!
