  • Barney the tattle tale!

    8.0
    This is Barney in rare form--watch for the scene in the truck--it's priceless. Barney can't keep a secret--even when he knows it's critical that he does. WAtching the town of Mayberry come out to "welcome" the 7 million dollars in gold is very , very cute. Although this is an episode that doesn't give us an "sweetness" or character development--it's still quite fun to watch!

    • Although Andy explains why the gold shipment isn't being transported via the obvious route, it still seems a little much to transport gold from Denver to Kentucky through North Carolina!

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • When Barney takes over for the guard in the gold truck he is handed his Thompson machine gun. The Thompson machine gun and it's round magazine was the favorite weapon of TV and movie gangsters from the 1930's and 40's. The weapon also saw extensive use in World War II, though the round magazine by that time had been replaced by the more efficient spring fed rectangular magazine. At the end of the episode the weapon is left with Barney - quite a gift from the Department of Treasury!
