  • Notes

    • Ben mentions that he sells spirits in his department store and that moonshiners like Jim cut in on his business. However, it is often said that Mayberry is a dry county, meaning no alcohol sales are permitted. However, it is perfectly legal to make liquor for personal consumption (in small quantities), it's just illegal to sell it. So, technically, Jim Muggins didn't break the law.
