  • It's a Pickle!

    This is one of the top five episodes of this series. Every element is so perfect that it continually raises your level of enjoyment. The layers to the story are excellent, with Clara's story of her beloved husband's love of her pickles and how important it is for her to win the contest juxtaposed to Andy,Barney and Opie's efforts to get rid of Aunt Bee's "Kerosene Cucumbers". One of my favorite scenes is when Deputy Fife "gives away" jars of the pickles to unsuspecting drivers who are stopped and given a "welcome to Mayberry" pickle jar. Barney, as a matter of fact, is SUPERB in this episode, and is reaching his stride as this character by the middle of the second season. If you can only watch ONE episode of this show--this is the one to watch!
