Bank robbers posing as television producers come to Mayberry.


When an article about Andy entitled Sheriff Without a Gun appears in a magazine, Hollywood soon comes calling with a proposal to do a television series based on his exploits. A producer and his attractive secretary are soon in Mayberry scouting out locations and discussing particular story lines. Barney makes the most of it, bragging about his mostly imaginary exploits, while Andy is his normal self-effacing self. The producers decide that the first episode will be about a bank robbery but Andy soon begins to wonder just why they are so interested in the Bank and just who these people really are.


Quotes Edit

Andy: It's true, I don't carry a gun, but my deputies do.
