    Of all the 1960's siticoms The Andy griffth show is by far my favourite but this needs to qualified. As with most sitcoms it often takes time for a show to cut its teeth so to speak and this show was no exception. In Season one Andy plays the Sherrif as a a very smart good old boy with a southern drawl and some of the episodes come accross as a little hokey. However by season 2 to season 5 until Don Knotts leaves the show, you have one of the most funny intelligent sitcoms ever on TV. The chemistry between Knotts and Griffth is exceptional and Ron Howard proved he is one of the best child actors ever. Unfortunatley by season 6 when the show goes to color and Knotts has left the show goes down hill. One of the simplest explanations other than the absence of Knots is the show is longer funny. The writing in my opinion deterioted considerably. Also the characters of Gober and Howard come accross as dull and unfunny. However for about 120 episodes (season 2 to 5) you have one of the funniest sitcoms ever.
