He got his start playing Sir Walter Raleigh in the Lost Colony outdoor drama:

He was also an English and drama teacher at Goldsboro High School, where he convinced one Carl Kassel to become his understudy.

Do you mean her kerosene cucumbers?


Thank you.

cleveoh: When I think of America's Sheriff, I'll think of Andy Taylor, not Joe Arpaio.

Also, a very underrated actor, as anyone who's seen "A Face In The Crowd" will attest.


Face in the Crowd is an incredible performance. See it if you haven't.

RIP.

Warm memories.
In my college years, nothing quite compared to controlled substance indulgence and watching the Andy Griffith show.

R.I.P., good sir, and thanks for the laughs

CPav: My sixteen year-old daughter is going to be crushed. For some reason, she absolutely loved him.

/not saying he wasn't worth loving...he was.
//just strange for a sixteen year-old who was born after most of his active career.


Eh, it's not that strange. I was born in 1985 and have seen pretty much every episode of the Andy Griffith 5 times.

When I was kid I lived in the middle of nowhere and we subscribed to the TV Land channel. I wasted a lot of hours watching those old shows, especially during summer break.

AbiNormal: They called it football.


YES!

My grandparents had one of his old comedy LPs and I listened to it all the time as a kid ...

when I got a little older, I switched to my parents' George Carlin ones.

Seven Words, baby!

I think I'm gonna' go home, have me a little nap, and then head over to Thelma Lou's and watch a little TV.


But Barn, I thought you were going to go to the filling station for a bottle of pop first?

No, sadly, they'll complain about how he was in favor of health care reform and how he criticized the Bush Administration about the Patriot Act.

As one of Andy's last works was an Obama infomercial with TV son Ron Howard, I somehow doubt they'll care.

Porous Horace: (To the tune of The Andy Griffith Show theme song)

So now, An-dy a-Griffith's dead
You know he's cold now as a stone
And Aunt Bea's dead, she's been for years
Worms knawed her to the bone

What about Floyd?
Is he with Aunt Bea?
He dug her up and
He then defiled her corpse - ugh!

(and so on...)


(Not to the tune of the Andy Griffith Show theme song)

Bell on door rings, come on in
Floyd observes my hairy chin
Sit down in the chair, don't be afraid
Steamed hot towel on my face

I was shaved

Barney ties me to the chair
I can't see I'm really scared
Floyd breathes hard I hear a zip
Pee pee pressed against my lips

I was shamed

I sense others in the room
Opie, Aunt Bea, I presume
They take turns and cut me up
I died smothered in Andy's clutch

I was shaved
I was shamed

UNC_Samurai: He got his start playing Sir Walter Raleigh in the Lost Colony outdoor drama:


Ha, I remember being on a ferry ride through Albemarle Sound and they came over the loud speaker and mentioned we were passing his house, right on the water. I guess he settled right around there.

I highly, highly recommend Face in The Crowd. It's a tremendous movie. he plays a local radio announcer who rises up in the country and becomes a real influence in government. His denouement is awesome. Its by Elia Kazan and most people havent heard of it because it was made during the communist era and Kazan had ratted people out.

also, I never watched Andy Griffith Show until a few years ago because I thought it was something stupid. But its a very good show and not cliche at all. I hate Barney though.

bigpeeler: He was a good cracker. Goooood cracker.


Came for this, leaving satisfied. But only if the RItz has peanut butter on it.

Never heard a bad word about the guy; that's right rare these days.

Far-right Republicans on another forum I read are already piling onto his death because he supported Obama. Thankfully they're being called out by a number of other people, though.

I love it when people over 80 pass away and they have to point out that "no cause of death has been determined"

Dude lived a long and successful life, he can just be "old"


/I'm guessing auto-erotic asphyxiation durng coke fueled threeway with thai ladyboys

Weak greenlit headline

However, Andy Griffith was a legend. His shows were legendary. He will be missed greatly

Now the afterlife gets live-action performances of Andy and Barney.
