Episode Summary

EDIT
Opie makes friends with Tommy, the new kid in town. Tommy is a bit mischevious, climbing up on the roof of Andy's building, and taking out a gun from Andy's gun rack even after Andy warns him TWICE not to. Goober gets a dog which he names "Spot" (because there are no spots). Tommy hides one of his walkie-talkies in Spot's collar and he and Opie lead Goober on to thinking that Spot can talk. The tables are turned, however, when Andy uses Tommy's love of horses to teach him a lesson.moreless

  • Goober's Dog

    8.0
    The episode's potential silliness is redeemed by George Lindsey's sensitive and sweet performance. His pain and embarrassment at having been fooled is very touching. Andy's punishment for the boys prank is sensitive and well thought out. An interesting episode, although uneven in spots in terms of story continuity and logic. But still immensely watchable.
