From a very young age, I have always been a HUGE fan of The Andy Griffith Show. In fact, I watch it, or rather listen to, it just about every day at lunch and then again in the evening. I just never get tired of it. They just don't make shows like that anymore. I think that if you've been a fan of the show, you probably have a favorite episode. I have several, including, Citizens' Arrest and Opie the Birdman. All of the cast that played the characters were wonderful, but my favorite had to be Barney Fife, or as he called himself sometimes, Bernard P. Fife. And the 'P' was always emphasized when he said it. LOL
Barney certainly was a character and I'm really glad to know, or at least I hope, that the policemen in Richmond, Virginia are more qualified than he was at being a deputy sheriff. He really was a goofball, wasn't he. But I sure did loved him. Probably one of the most hilarious things about Barney, was that he considered himself a real ladies man. I don't know what planet he was living on, but he definitely was not a ladies man. Thelma Lou was always his main squeeze on the show, but he always cracked me up when he was talking to Juanita on the phone down at the Bluebird Diner. He would always tell the operator, "uh, Sarah, could you get me the Blue Diner?" When he made that call, you knew he wasn't calling to order take-out, his only interest was in sweet talking Juanita. They never did actually show her, but I always wondered what she looked like.
Yep, that Barney Fife was the best part of that show, for sure. It never was the same after he left. I've always wondered how Barney convinced himself into thinking he was this Cary Grant type Casanova. Barney was certainly a sweetheart of a guy and super funny, but a ladies man he was not.
