How well do you know Andy Griffith's career?

We'll be impressed if you get half of these right!

Andy Griffith was in the acting game for a long time. There's no question that his work ethic earned him a bountiful career that many longtime fans have followed — down to his five-minute appearances on talk shows. Before headlining his beloved sitcom The Andy Griffith Show, the North Carolina native got his start working as a monologist and comedian.

Griffith's first big break came in the form of his comedy routine "What It Was, Was Football," told from the point of view of a naïve country bumpkin trying to figure out what was going on in a football game. From there, it was all uphill career-wise.
