Who did this: Andy Griffith or Don Knotts?

See how well you know the careers of these BFFs.


Andy and Don were more than hilarious costars — they were best friends for life. The two crossed paths beyond The Andy Griffith Show, first appearing together in No Time for Sergeants and reuniting decades later on Matlock.

MrBill..you’ve never heard of ‘Destry Rides Again’? There were numerous ‘Destry’ movies; 1932 “Destry Rides Again” w/Tom Mix, “Destry Rides Again” w/James Stewart, 1939, “Destry”w/Audie in 1954, and then there was a tv series “Destry” w/ John Gavin, ran a few weeks in 1964. My favorite is the James Stewart....Have a good day...✌🏼

Enough already with the Andy Griffith trivia. You've been doing that to death for weeks. Please move on to other shows in your quizzes and stories.
