Watching this episode last night on TV land marathion reminded me why this is such an awesome great episode and one of my very favorite eps. Andy thinks Opie's new friend Mr. McBevee is imangiary because of Opie's play horse. Then Andy wants to know where Opie is getting the gifts from. He struggles wanting to believe his good son. The scene when he says he believes in his son is awesome, as when he meets Mr. McBeevee. This is an awesome ep in the relationsip of father and son, Opie and Andy.
Btw, Mr. McBeevee, Karl Swenson, played Mr. Hanson on LHOTP.
