Andy and Barney's relationship was one of the classic moments on TV. They took care of each other and was a great comedy team, neither of them tried to steal the show from the other. You don't find a team like that today. Ron Howard has to be one of the greatest kid actors ever. Opie is a great addition to the show, he never had a bad shot on the set. Aunt Bea was a charming site to see each week. I don't think anyone on the show was a wrong character, each adding something special to the show.
