  • Notes

    • Despite the pain of seeing Thelma Lou betrothed to another man, Barney (and disgusted fans) do finally get some retribution in the Mayberry reunion movie "Return to Mayberry" by getting to see old Barn finally marry his soul mate. It is mentioned very breifly at the beginning of the movie that Thelma Lou divorced her then husband very soon after marriage though no reason was given.
