The Andy Griffith Show Wiki... an in-depth encyclopedic guide to the beloved CBS television series. We are a collaborative website about the small-town world of The Andy Griffith Show that first started to grow on September 30, 2008. The wiki format allows anyone to create or edit any article, so we can all work together to create the site. Now, take a stroll into Mayberry.

Green Featured Character
The jinx

Leon is the preschool-aged, sandwich eating cowboy, who is rarely seen, but never heard, in five episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. We never found out who his parents were, or exactly how old he was supposed to be. He was portrayed by Clint Howard, the younger brother of Ron Howard.

Mr. McBeevee—


"Mr. McBeevee" is the Season 3 premiere episode of The Andy Griffith Show. Opie weaves the fabulous tale of Mr. McBeevee, a man who walks in the treetops, wears a silver hat, has twelve extra hands, blows smoke from his ears, and jingles when he walks as if he had rings on his fingers and bells on his toes. But other than those few quirks, Mr. McBeevee is normal. Andy and Barney laugh it off, but when Opie brings back a quarter he claims was given to him by his friend, Andy is forced to call the stories to a halt.

Green Featured criminal
Otis Campbell—

Otis Campbell was the "town drunk" in Mayberry and probably the most well-known prisoner in the courthouse. Otis was played by Hal Smith and made frequent appearances on the show from 1960 to 1967, and stopped appearing in the show towards the end of the series due to concerns by the show's sponsors over the portrayal of excessive drinking. Otis works as a glue dipper in a furniture factory.
