How well do you remember the wedding of Sheriff Andy and Helen Crump?

Test your knowledge of this happy Mayberry union!


You had to figure that a happy, feel-good show like The Andy Griffith Show would have a happy ending. Inevitably, Sheriff Andy would settle down and find a wife.

He did indeed find the love of his life, but their wedding had to wait for another series. "Andy and Helen Get Married" aired as an episode of the spinoff Mayberry R.F.D

With all the familiar characters, it feels like an episode of The Andy Griffith Show. (It would be the last time we saw Barney Fife until the reunion movie Return to Mayberry years later.)

Let's see how well you remember this cheerful event.

Watch The Andy Griffith Show on MeTV!

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

*available in most MeTV markets

Hello oldiestvrocks,
The answer to your question is: The return to Mayberry movie will be showing Sunday May 31 at 5pm/4pm central to wrap up the Month. Hope that is helpful. Enjoy the rest of the month of Mayberry. You can read more about it here.

Q # 17 - Barney also sings the final song with Andy on the honeymoon. Surprised they didn't have any question about Barney walking with the newly married couple down the aisle.

Andy should have married Peggy McMillin - extremely beautiful and she can cook!

I believe it’s called a scarlet ibis rather than egret (one of my favorite birds, saw them in short neon-red flamingos.)

16/17; I just watched the episode today but did not pay attention to what Goober had in his pocket.

Watching the episode just now, I noticed that Aunt Bee's suit at the wedding looks like carnival glass. (See #8 above.)

12/17. Not bad considering I've never seen the episode.

Can anyone remember which season and or episode of Mayberry RFD, where Andy and Helen return to have their new baby baptized, I believe his name was Andy Jr.
Season 2, Episode 1 :)
But poor Andy Jr. was forgotten in Return to Mayberry. Perhaps he was away at college.

I'd totally forgotten about his episode!! So glad they're re-running it. TAGS has been a go-to lately to avoid all the doom & gloom news cycle. I can only take so much of that stuff & TAGS has been a great escape.

Have to agree with the other posters here over the poor casting of Helen Crump. She always seemed
angry and dour, as if she was irate she had to play the part. Everybody else in Mayberry was lively
and someone you'd like to spend time with, which is why we still like "visiting" there.

I think they had 'planned' that Elinor Donahue "Ellie" be his 'girl' for longer than she was but Ellie and Andy didn't 'get along' in 'real life.'

I agree Steve, didn't care for Helen that much. Her character was bossy, jealous, and assuming. And Barney with them on their honeymoon? That did it for me.

Lost a lot of respect for Andy when he didn't choose Miss Peggy McMillan all those years ago. She was much better than Helen.
I'm wondering if they didn't keep her because that was the time she was married to Ryan O'Neal. She started using drugs and alcohol.
