  • Goober buys the gas station--at last!

    7.9
    It's amusing to see Goober take over the gas station (at long last) but the results are predictable and not as funny as they could have been. A very, very young Bo Hopkins is featured as "George", Goober's employee. It's funnier to see Andy and Emmett get anxious about their investment--more should have been done on this angle I feel to make it a GREAT episode.

    • In this episode Andy explains what happened to Floyd and Floyd's Barbershop. He tells Goober that Floyd finally decided he had enough money and decided to retire and that Emmitt Clark decided to move his Fix It shop out of his home and into the space formerly occupied by Floyd's. Howard McNear, the actor who played Floyd, left the show at the end of the 1966-1967 season due to his declining health after suffering a stroke a few years earlier. McNear would die in January of 1969.
