Can you tell the difference between a real movie and a fake film from The Andy Griffith Show?

Was this a title playing at the Mayberry Theater… or on Svengoolie?!

The late Fifties were a golden era for science-fiction B-movies. Giant monsters, flying saucers, invading insects, 50 ft. women—you name it, it probably attacked Earth. 

Well, it seems like that genre was a bit hit in Mayberry in the early 1960s. Maybe it took a little longer for pictures to make their premiere down there. 

Throughout The Andy Griffith Show, many movies are mentioned playing at the Mayberry Theater. They're all made-up. But they sure sound real!

Let's see if you can tell the difference between a real movie and a phony flick from The Andy Griffith Show. In fact, the real ones have all appeared on our own Svengoolie!

Watch Svengoolie on MeTV!

Saturdays at 7 PM

*available in most MeTV markets

  2. Billy the Kid Versus Dracula
  3. Dinosaurus!
  4. The Beast that Ate Minnesota

  7. The House Without Windows
  8. The Monster from Out of Town
  9. Creature with the Atom Brain
  10. The Monolith Monsters

Can you tell the difference between a real movie and a fake film from The Andy Griffith Show?

12/12. I remember some of the titles mentioned in "TAGS". And I'm a big 50s sci-fi fan so I know those titles, too.

11 of 12! I missed #7, The House Without Windows. I zipped through this quiz real fast because most questions were pretty easy. I should have got this one, I just took a wild guess. Another fun quiz!!

9/12. I made one mistake and answered the wrong question, also- "The island of mysterious Beautiful Women? Why haven't I seen that one? Nothing like a B movie with wild women, they're usually underdressed.

You got 11 out of 12
Impressive work! Mayberry After Midnight gives your performance 3.5 clovers! They are hard critics to please. They gave the same rating to "the suspense movie of the year."

Here's a question for all Andy Griffith fans that I'll bet few if any will be able to answer.

Did something happen that almost prevented the Andy Griffith show from ever airing?
PLEASE tell us, Chris or anyone !!!
Inquiring minds want to KNOW
