The Andy Griffith Show: An American sitcom first televised on CBS between October 3, 1960 and April 1, 1968. Andy Griffith portrays the widowed sheriff of the fictional small community of Mayberry, North Carolina. His life is complicated by an inept, but well-meaning deputy, Barney Fife (Don Knotts), a spinster aunt and housekeeper, Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a precocious young son, Opie (Ron Howard).
Opie's friend Arnold seems to have it all--a new bike, fat allowance, and plenty of leisure time. When the pressure's on, though, Opie learns that these assets are actually Arnold's greatest weakness.
