What a wonderful book. Ken Beck and Jim Clark write this book as if the characters on the Andy Griffith Show were real live people with real lives. Of course, those of us who love the show feel that they are real. There are biographies of several of the shows main characters, a sort history of the town (Mayberry), lots of fun facts (like all of Barney's nicknames, Barney blarney (how is mispronounces words), Barney's songs, his letters, what he may say when he gets mad at Andy, etc.).

I'm on a roll with reading about one of my favorite shows. This one was more of all the facts about each character, etc. that was ever mentioned, some being contradictory, nothing gossipy about the actors, like the last one. It has inspired me to begin to watch all 20+ episodes to make sure I've seen them all and so far, I have found a couple I didn't remember ever seeing. I'm thinking about joining one of the fan clubs:)

Andy Griffith Show Fortieth Anniversary Edition by Ken Beck (St. Martin's Griffin 2000) (791.45+/-). Here's a fan book, an insider's look, and an episode guide to the TV show and our favorite small town cast of characters. This is the second-best book about TAGS. My rating: 7/10, finished 12/15/14.

This is one of those media-related reference books that makes you really believe in the fictional universe it concerns. There's so much background information and minutia about the residents of Mayberry, you'll come away wishing they were your neighbors.
