  • Don Rickles comes to Mayberry!

    8.0
    This is a very well written and entertaining episode. The character of Newton Monroe is exceptionally well done--and of course performed superbly by Don Rickles. The Andy Griffith show excels at simple stories told with warmth and sincerity. Barney is wonderful as always, and is actually very smart when it comes to sizing up the potential of Newton. It's one of the rare times that Barney's on top of things before Andy--it's a refreshing change!moreless

    • The heating vent seen in this episode, on the wall just below the bulletin board was clearly added for this episode - it's never there before this episode and disappears by the next episode.

    • Don Rickles was an established actor and comedian by the time of this episode, which was clearly written to exploit his comedic talents. This was the closest the series ever came to sporting a celebrity guest star, something fairly common in television shows in the 1950's.
