How well do you know the very first episode of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.?

The Marine Corps took a little getting used to for the beloved Mayberry mechanic.

In some ways, the pilot episode of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. was actually an episode of The Andy Griffith Show. A season four Andy Griffith episode tells the story of how Gomer went from Mayberry to the Marine Corps. But the actual first episode of the spinoff came a few months later in the fall of 1964.

“Gomer Overcomes the Obstacle Course” gives a great introduction to the friction between Gomer and his exasperated drill instructor Sgt. Carter. It also shows how Gomer can remain optimistic and endear himself to the right people, which even makes Sgt. Carter look good!

How well do you know the premiere of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.? There aren't any high walls or rope swings, but this quiz may still be tough to get through for anyone but the biggest Gomer Pyle fans. Good luck!

At 9pm Tonight on METV is The Jet
Set episode of GOMER Pyle USMC
From season one and The Jet Set
has the Last Appearance of Corporal
Nick Cuccinelli played by Tommy
Leonetti . Tommy Leonetti was an
actor and a singer.
I like the season one episode of GOMER PYLE USMC called GOMER And The
Dragon Lady. Barbara Stuart played
Hannah Troy who was called the Dragon
Lady .Barbara Stuart played Bunny starting
with season 2 of GOMER PYLE USMC.
The Dragon Lady flipped Duke Slater and
Sgt Carter .
Did anyone ever notice that on GOMER
PYLE USMC Sgt Carter's girlfriend BUNNY
Bunny Harper
Bunny Olsen
Bunny Wilson

I noticed that Bunny had three
different last names but the
writers didn't notice it.

9/10. I bet a certain someone got them all right.
GOMER PYLE USMC and GREEN ACRES are two terrific TV Shows.
