Is this the name of a Mayberry character or Vice President of the United States?

Was he part of The Andy Griffith Show… or American history?

The Andy Griffith Show is part of American history. Heck, the sitcom even had an episode about American history, "Andy Discovers America." It's the one that introduced Helen Crump.

While Mayberry is the All-American small town — it is not a real place in America. The exploits of Barney Fife are not a true part of American history.

Can you tell American history apart from television lore? The following men were either Vice Presidents or characters around Mayberry. Try to sort them!

Sure, John Masters was the Mayberry choir director, but you omitted that he was played by one of my fave "that guy" actors, Olan Soulé (who was also the police lab guy on Dragnet and the voice of the animated '70s Batman).

Also, while you explained that Levi Morton was vice president under Harrison, you didn't say *which* Harrison. (It was Benjamin; John Tyler was grandpa William's veep.)

John Masters was also the hotel clerk who registered Mr. Darling as a solo guest, only to later hear an entire band playing up in the room.

Wow - I like to think I know US history, and I have seen every TAGS ever, but these were some deep cuts! Excellent quiz!

And thank you for continuing to provide content - these diversions are helping me keep my sanity.

I could have SWORN a Spiro Agnew once appeared in Mayberry and frightened the livestock.
