Trivia Question 10/3/2013 – The Andy Griffith Show

Andy GriffithToday in history, in 1960 the Andy Griffith Show premiered on CBS-TV.  Maybe you remember the small town of Mayberry, North Carolina with its Sheriff, Andy Taylor, played by Andy Griffith.  Andy was a widower with a young son, Opie, played by movie director Ron Howard.  They lived with their housekeeper Aunt Bee.  There was also, of course, Andy’s Deputy Barney Fife played by Don Knotts and Jim Nabors as gas station attendant Gomer Pyle.

QUESTION:

As shown in an episode of the show, how much was a gallon of gas in the little town of Mayberry?

ANSWER:

5 cents

EXPLANATION:

During the eight years it was on the air, The Andy Griffith Show was always at the top of the ratings, and ended while still at the top of the Nielsen’s Ratings, one of only three shows to have done so, along with I Love Lucy and Seinfeld.   The show is still seen in reruns.

As for the price of gas… Only once, in the third season, was the price revealed. That price was 5 cents a gallon.

NET CHECK-IN’s:

We had a total of 31 people check in to the Net and nobody go the correct answer.  But… since we use Price Is Right rules, the folks who came closest to the correct answer without going over win.  So congrat…. oh, wait, everyone went over.  So, I guess the winner are the folks who came closest (even though they went over, because they said 10 cents) and that’s:

  • KI6EBF – Doug
  • K6FCC – Khalil

Thank you to all for checking in to the Net.
