    This is an episode that could have been GREAT--and does have some funny moments, but all in all it falters too much to be one of the series best. The town has a new mayor who wants to "clean up" things, notably Andy's department. This would have been a great opportunity for the writers to have given us the reasons WHY Andy chooses to run his department as he does. The sight of the mayor in the tree, and the bear in the squad car IS funny--but doesn't quite hit the bull's eye for this episode.moreless

    • [Andy reads the label on Barney's new, strong, after-shave lotion]
      Andy: Nuits de Paris - or - Paris Nights
      Barney: Well it's famous stuff. A lot of celebrities use that... radio announcers and everything.
      Andy: Capturing the fragrance of Riviera rose-petals and the passion of the Mediterranean moon in a rugged, he-man scent. Caution: user should wear gloves.
      Barney: [grabs bottle and checks label for that last part] You're funny, aren't you, boy. You're really funny. Give you a hundred on the laugh meter!

  • NOTES (1)

    • Mayor Stoner makes his first appearance in this episode having taken over the mayorship from Mayor Pike. In most episodes, Mayor Stoner appeared to be in a supervisory position over Andy, often ordering Andy around. Since both Andy and Mayor Stoner were elected officials, it's unlikely that he would have had any real power over Andy, especially when you consider that Andy was the Sheriff of the entire County whereas Mayor Stoner's jurisdiction was limited to the city of Mayberry.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Barney makes a reference to the Katzenjammer Kids, one of the longest lasting comic strips around today having first began in 1897.
