Did You Know? Andy Griffith played one of the first single dads on television.
Did You Know? Until recently, Andy Griffith had not returned to Mount Airy publicly since June 1, 1957, to see a parade in his honor for No Time for Sergeants.
Griffith also celebrated something else on that day - his thirty-first birthday.
Opie: "The cage sure looks awful empty, donít it Pa?"
Andy: "Yes son, it sure does... But, donít the trees seem nice and full."
Did You Know? Howard Hesseman of WKRP in Cincinnati made two guest appearances on TAGS, but never shows up in any of the credits.
For diehard TAGS fans, here's a hint: Hesseman played a sturdy role in both episodes.
Did You Know? Andy Griffith was married three times.
Barbara Edwards (1949-1972), Solica Cassuto (1973-1981), and his current wife, Cindi Knight, who he married in 1983.
