How well do you really know Opie Taylor?

These details are as small as first-season Opie!

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.

That was a Very Funny ED SAWYER VIDEO from The Stranger In Town episode of The Andy Griffith Show.
William Lanteau played Ed
Sawyer for one episode only.
I noticed that the scenes with
Lucy Mathews were left out of
this Funny Ed Sawyer Video called Stranger In Town.
