8/22/2002 – ChristianActivities.com in conjunction with the Christian Activities
Mayberry Forum is sponsoring “The
Mayberry Poem – A Tribute to Mayberry.”
“The Andy Griffith Show” was one of television’s most popular sitcoms
during its eight-year run.
The television show that debuted Monday, October 3, 1960, and ran for 249 episodes, 90 of which were color. “Mayberry RFD” and “Gomer Pyle,” two spin-off shows, were equally popular. In fact, “The Andy Griffith Show” has never gone off the air as it has continuously aired in reruns since the enduring sitcoms about family and friends in a small Southern
town went off the air in the late 60’s.
“The show is still a landmark of combining good, clean humor with traditional family values,” says
Christian Activities Online publisher Kathryn Darden. “Much as Bedford Falls still captures the nostalgia and imagination of those who love “It’s a Wonderful Life,”
Mayberry holds a similar sway over those who love “The Andy Griffith Show.” Mayberry is basically the Bedford Falls of the 60’s and is attracting a new generation of viewers today through reruns.”
The Mayberry Poem is an activity anyone who is familiar with “The Andy Griffith Show” can participate in. Christian Activities readers are invited to add a verse or two! Verses can be humorous or inspiring — they just have to
