How well do you know Mayberry by the numbers?

It takes a true Andy Griffith Show expert to score big.

We all love Mayberry. We know the colorful characters around town, and all the quaint establishments.

But how well do you know the little details? We're talking numbers — phone numbers, population, school years, ages, fines, etc. If you can pass this quiz, consider yourself an Andy Griffith Show expert!
  1. How old is Opie Taylor at the start of The Andy Griffith Show?
  2. How many seasons were there of The Andy Griffith Show?

  6. How many children does Sheriff Andy Taylor have by the end of the spin-off, Mayberry R.F.D.?

I don't remember Andy having another son with Helen. Must have not watched many of those. Did they ever show him?

The question said how many kids did he have at the end of the spinoff mayberry rfd.In the first episode of the second season on RFD Andy and Helen return to mayberry with their new baby Andy Jr,to have him Christen in Mayberry.But then in 1986 reunion movie "Return to Mayberry" Andy Jr is never mentioned.

8/11; I never paid much attention to phone numbers or population and missed those questions. Also missed the one on Goober's carburetor - never card much for the colored episodes.

Easiest one of all for me was the number of seasons, because earlier today I was just thinking about Allan Melvin, and how he had recurring roles on everything from the Dick Van Dyke Show to Gomer Pyle to the Brady Bunch to Magilla Gorilla and the Banana Splits, he played a different character in every TAGS episode he appeared in: eight, one for each season.

7/11 I can't believe the population was that high.

Well, how was I to know that Andy and Helen were going to give Opie a baby brother? And, I never did care much for Warren replacing Barney as deputy of Mayberry, and for Barney to be working someplace else. It just wasn't right.

7/11! Missed 6 [forgot AJ], 8 [aren't all TV phones 555?], 9 [seems a little too high for Mayberry] and 11[somehow 38 minutes seems a little too slow]!

NO, cperrynaples, This was long before that, local telephone companies in small towns had their own numbering systems back in the 1930's on up to the '70s, where some were one long & two short for example before dial phones were invented. Like with the candlestick phones, which didn't have dials until later.
