10/10 had to think about #5. I liked the way Barney and Otis argued with each other. 😂

Unlike some haircuts, you're not permanently stuck with this quiz. Whether you got them all right or missed a few, why not try another?

9 out of 10 , I missed # 9 . I was lucky to get # 10 correct because our OTA MeTv station "WFOXDT2HD" channel 30.2 in Northeast Florida refuses to air these two great TV shows , Andy and Green Acres . They will not answer emails as why they will not !

For a while, the METV Cincinnati affiliate showed "Mayberry RFD" instead of TAGS. It was due to another syndicated station in the area having the rights to TAGS which prevented METV from showing it.
