    Does anyone know? Was it ever mentioned that Goober was just his nickname and did he have a "real" name?

    That's a pretty stupid name, even for Mayberry! No stupider than Opie, I guess.

    In one episode they mentioned that Goober's last name was Beasley but then I guess they decided to change it to Pyle to match Gomer's last name.

    Goober was like a big kid in a lot of ways.

    Yes, he was. The episodes that showed him with a girlfriend seem really strange.

    Goober was a little rougher around the edges than cousin Gomer.  Whereas Gomer was saintly, one got the feeling that Goober had a wild streak in him and liked to cut loose every now and then.

    "Tell Andy 'Goober says Hey!'"

    He was a memorable character.
