I even loved your movies. The Ghost & Mr. Chicken is one of my favorites and the line I still laugh at to this day..."That aboy Luther". Rest in Peace. It will be a sad day when you friend Andy joins you in heaven for us here on earth but a joyous day for you both. The Andy Griffith show was and still is the best show ever, ever shown on TV.

The Andy Griffith show was a perfect blend of character chemistry portrayed by actors and crew who really loved and respected each other. A classic example of what can happen when the pursuit is quality in the art of comedic storytelling. God bless Andy Griffith who was the heart of it all. Norman, Jacksonville, FL.

Thank you, Mr. Knotts, for giving us the most memorable character in television history. Yes, Barney Fife was a pretentious boob, but what I consider most important about Barney Fife is that he was always loyal to his friend Andy. And I suspect Don Knotts was the same with his real life friends.

If I had a time machine, I would stop in Mayberry and just might not want to come back. Aunt Bee's cooking, Andy's hospitality, Barny's antics, a small town and small town people, can't beat it... 10 cent sodas, Oh how I wish I had a time machine. I would go back and we could have some great times Barney. Maybe even let you rescue me from the cave. Don Knotts, you nailed it, you couldn't have done a better job. No one could have, I never miss a moment of TAGS when it is on. No matter how many times I have seen it before. That is a pretty good indication of how well you played the part sir. I can't describe how much your missed. Rest in peace. You put smiles on a lot of faces for many years, you can't ask for a much better reward. Your a wealthy soul Mr. Knotts.

I have already posted to Don's site before .I watch "The Andy Griffith Show" every day. When people come to my pizzeria they know that Mayberry is going to be on DVD
They sometimes get caught up in it and stay to watch longer than they planned. There are always comments about the wholesomeness ,entertaining value and just right out good feeling you get watching Andy and Barn.On this day of remembrance of the most terrifying time in our country, I will put on my DVDs and try to bring some peace into our hearts by bringing back a sweet time and hopeful time . Love and thoughts and prayers go out to you Don and also to all those who lost family and friends on 9/11

My first thoughts are, Thanks so much to Andy, Barney, Opie, Aunt Bee, Floyd, Gomer, Goober, and the whole cast, for THE BEST TV program then, now, and forever! It's the only TV show that you can watch and it works like a medicine, it lifts your spirit, soul and mind, you can watch a couple of reruns, that you've seen a hundred times and you watch with such joy, it feels like its your first time, you've ever seen it. I can watch a few reruns, and physical and mental feel so much better. I would tell anyone, if you're feeling low, just watch a few reruns to lift your spirits. Thanks a million, and as Red Skelton use to said, may God Bless! thanks! js

I sit and think that eventually all of those wonderful actors and actresses will be gone and my heart breaks. There will never be another show anywhere near what TAGS was and my heart and love goes out to all of the wonderful people who put it together and were a part of it that made me laugh so hard I cried. I miss the ones that are gone already and cherish the ones still here. God bless you all. We love you !!

The andy griffith show is simply the best show ever.

Someone should do something for this show, like build a model town or erect a statue or something. Im 17 and with all the other forms of entertainment there is and all the vulgarity there is out there, this is still my show and at the end of the day i love to curl up on the sofa and watch some andy griffith show.
