How well do you remember The Andy Griffith Show episode ''Christmas Story''?

The Andy Griffith Show knocked it out of the park in its eleventh episode. The beloved sitcom crafted perhaps the greatest Christmas episode in television history. "Christmas Story" essentially condensed It's A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol down into 25 charming minutes.

There is tinsel! There are songs! There's a grumpy ol' Scrooge with a cold heart! Wellโ€ฆ at least until it warms up through the magic of the season.

Took me a couple of tries to get 16/16. I guess I really didn't remember the show. I hate when they don't show the correct answers. I want to know the correct answer when I get it wrong.

I got a gold ๐ŸŒŸ for only 14/16.This episode is also famous for being one of the two B/W episodes that CBS colorized and aired,I believe in prime time,back in 2015.The other being "The Pickle Story".

Hi! I remember that episode well. Not quiz-well, however, it seems.

The episodes are half hour long, but I think this Christmas episode was one hour long. I am not sure, is this correct? It is real good to see. I answered 16 correct out of 16. Thank you for a new quiz, bring more MeTV.

15/16 Missed #8.
Exactly the same here. I guessed Snow White, mainly because of the hair style.
