Let's play matchmaker for Andy Taylor

While we all know who Andy ends up with, that doesn't always mean that that's who you think he should have ended up with. We just included his some of his main squeezes in our poll below, but if you have an underdog that you think should've won the sheriff's heart, sound off in the comments!

Helen Crump and I don't even watch Andy Griffith

Definitely Mary Simpson, but played by Julie Adams (not Sue Anne Langdon). Second would be Peggy McMillan.

Ellie and Helen were both a little too prickly. Not sure who Alice Harper was. Of the remaining ones, I think Charlene would have been most interesting. Another that would have been interesting would be Daphne (the "Fun Girl"). And you know who else would have been an interesting mate? Thelma Lou!

Mavis Neff. She just loved his laugh wrinkles.

Helen was just stuck up and annoying

I always thought there was something fake about Peggy. I mean, even as a young child she seemed fake to me so I was glad she didn't stay around.

Karen, definitely Karen.

She was stunning, yes--especially her eyes--but she was a strong, independent woman whose skeet shooting skills would've made for many happy outings with Andy.

Opie and Aunt Bee took an immediate liking to her, and she would've made a great addition to the Taylor household.

I wish she'd made more than one appearance.

Helen Crump, of course!
Ellie Walker was MY soul mate. I still think she is the most beautiful woman on TV.

I preferred Karen myself, but she was only on once. She was played by Gail Davis, who was my childhood heroine when she played Annie Oakley. For those who don't remember her, she was the spunky blonde, Thelma Lou's cousin from Arkansas, who beat Andy in skeet shooting (how appropriate!).

20% similar - I chose Mary Simpson thinking she was the nurse played by the beautiful Julie Adams and not the nurse played by Sue Ane Langdon, as someone said below. Am I right or wrong? Not a big fan of Sue Ane Langdon (that voice...ugh!!) so if SHE is the Mary Simpson in question I would change my vote to Peggy McMillan played by lovely Joanna Moore. A very close second. Her singing with Andy on the porch is one of my favorite scenes. And not that you asked but for third place I will echo what someone wrote below, Gloria played by the also lovely Jan Shutan.

Hey, if you haven't noticed, this has already been done and Helen Crump won! Ellie was a wash out from Day One and the rest weren't even in the running. Miss Crump was only supposed to appear in that one episode, but it rapidly became clear that they had that elusive elixir -- on-screen chemistry.

When did Ellie or Helen ever go fishing ? Peg did. Regardless of any extra curricular activities, Peg was a nurse. Aunt B wasn't getting any younger. Who better to take care of an invalid Aunt B in her final years ? Peg was a better singer as well …

I really liked Peggy I felt she was a better fit. Helen is okay but can be a little cold. Don't like Ellie at all too bossey and pushey always wants her way.

Helen Crump... Seriously? Wish the Blob had gotten her...

Peggy was the sweetest and nicest and would have made a wonderful mother for the Opester...

Couldn't stand jealous, petty, cold Helen Crump. I couldnt separate the actress, Joanna Moore, from her character, Peggy McMillan. Julie Adams always looked worried, melodramatic. No bueno. Everyone loved Elinor Donahue, but I read that she was not willing to sign up for "extracurricular activities" with Andy. Thus, they parted ways. More's the pity.

The always adorable Elinor Donahue as Ellie Walker. I would have chosen her Miriam Welby as Felix Unger's permanent love interest too.

I chose Peggy, but that's me not Sheriff Taylor. This is a survey, not a quiz.
