Are these real merch items from The Andy Griffith Show or did we make them up?

Sheriff Andy Taylor was once on a box of Grape-Nut cereal!

When Andy Griffith started his series, his main priority was ensuring viewers got the best production quality. According to Ron Howard, Griffith was a natural leader, and the show was vital to him. As a result, he wanted the audience to focus on the show itself and not, for example, branding.

It's one of the reasons why only a few pieces of merchandise were tied to the show during its run. Yet, due to its growing popularity, fans wanted a portion of the classic production in their homes. There were a few more items added after the series ended, and we want to know if you can guess which were real, and which we made up.

Did you know you can have some Mayberry inspired T-shirts of your own by visiting MeTV Mall?

I'm always amazed when I look at the prices of groceries in the background on Andy Griffith. I remember when tuna was 19 cents a can. It's crazy.

I missed the bobble heads! No clue they were “a thing” back in the day! I thought they were more of a modern kind of tacky! 😂

I thought this was going to be about products used or mentioned on the show. Was hoping to see the "little pigs" that were always advertised in the window of the Mayberry general store.

9 / 10 missing #5. Basic toy and other child related items I know quite well. Not so much about old food items unless it's original TV Dinners with the aluminum tray and foil covering that required the dessert compartment to be uncovered prior to popping the tray into the oven.
I remember those 👀….pretty darn good too 😉

I loved tv dinners. My favorite was the fried chicken. Back then movies like the Wizard of Oz only came on once a year, so it was a treat to eat on a tv tray with a tv dinner and watch the show.

I got the TAGS board game for Christmas one year. Loved it! We still play it sometimes. Kind of guessed at most of the others but still managed to get 9/10.

7/10. I knew the brands that Andy plugged at the end of the show, but I'm not up on all the TAGS-related merchandise.

The real question is did they sell Aunt Bee pickles?

I was wondering that, myself. I might have bought some just to see how bad they really were.

Merchandise for The Andy Griffith Show, now you are spoiling the whole wholesome vibe.
I have to admit that I have two of the Aunt Bee cookbooks.
I realize that it is just a money generating scheme, so, naturally the powers that be did it. 😕
