Do these first names belong to Mayberry characters or the actors who played them?

Are you on a first name basis with all the residents of Mayberry?

Many actors from The Andy Griffith Show are so connected to their characters, it can be easy to forget their real names! Of course, Don Knotts and Ron Howard made a name for themselves outside the beloved sitcom and Andy used his own name for Sheriff Taylor so he didn't have that problem!

But distinguishing between characters and actors might be harder for other Mayberry residents. Can you guess if these first names belong to Andy Griffith Show characters or actors?

Watch The Andy Griffith Show on MeTV!

Weeknights at 8 & 8:30, Sundays at 6 & 6:30 PM

You got 13 out of 14 - You know these names so well, you're practically a Mayberry resident! Great job! Missed #5. Chose too quickly without giving it much thought. But I'll take it.

Can't believe there was no Gomer/Jim in this quiz, though.

Thought I might ace this one, then they threw in #12. I could have sworn that Opie had a friend named Sheldon. Just not the right one I guess.

I would have liked to see more of the Mayberry celebration during May besides on May 1st which is just one day METV should at least show some of the color episodes of Andy Griffith. I don't know if METV intentionally showed the Star Trek episode with Clint Howard (Ron's younger brother) and the Land of the Giants Episode with Ron Howard both on Saturday Night, April 30. Clint Howard appeared on one episode of Andy Griffith. It may have been a coinsidence, but they fit right in.
