Description by OLDIES.com:
It's the eighth and final season of the show TV Guide dubbed "one of the greatest television shows of all time." Although it's time to say good-bye, there are still plenty of laughs, lessons and homespun humor in the eighth season of this classic TV series.
Marriage may be in the cards for both Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier) and Howard Sprague (Jack Dodson)... Goober (George Lindsey) becomes his own business man... Opie (Ron Howard) discovers the infectious twang of a rock 'n' roll guitar... and Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith) himself still somehow manages to keep Mayberry's humble sheriff's department running without a hitch - well, most of the time! And don't miss the return of Barney Fife (Don Knotts), as the bumbling former deputy returns to Mayberry and threatens to add a new layer of frost to the Cold War! There's all this - plus the episode introducing the series spin-off, "Mayberry R.F.D." - in this five-disc, 30-episode final season.
THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW premiered in 1960 and, featuring one of the most beloved television fathers of all time, quickly charmed its way into the hearts of audiences. Set in the fictitious environs of Mayberry, North Carolina, the series chronicles daily life in that peaceful Southern hamlet through the gently humorous eyes of town sheriff Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith). A widower raising his young son, Opie (a pre-HAPPY DAYS Ron Howard), with the help of his live-in spinster aunt, Bee (Frances Bavier), Andy capably navigates single parenthood with the same goodhearted wisdom that he brought to his law enforcement duties. This collection presents all 30 episodes of the series' eighth and final season, including fan-favorite episodes like "Barney Hosts a Summit Meeting" and "Mayberry R.F.D." as well as guest appearances by Don Knotts, Jack Nicholson, Harry Dean Stanton, Teri Garr, Ken Berry, and Howard Hesseman.
