Can you recognize Andy Griffith Show characters in Westerns?

How far is it from Mayberry to Dodge City?


There may have been a sheriff and a deputy, not to mention all-American morals, but it's hard to label The Andy Griffith Show a Western. And not just because the show took place in North Carolina.

Below, you will find some familiar Mayberry denizens on other classic TV shows. Can you recognize them — and name their Mayberry characters?

* Saw Emmett on an Alfred Hitchcock episode a few days ago as a safe-cracker challenged to open a new burglar-proof safe! Great episode!

Ken Berry, who was the star of MAYBERRY RFD for 3 years after TAGS ended, starred in a comedy western series on ABC called F TROOP in the 1960s. I think it ran for 2 or 3 years.
