    I don't know many that didn't watch or like his TV shows or movies.

    And he raised a pretty darn good 'son' in little Ronnie Howard....

    The last thing I will remember about Andy Griffith is that he made a commercial for Obamacare during the Congressional debate. And that's too bad.

    I loved him as Andy Taylor, but early in his career, he was in the movies.

    He was surprising as Larry "Lonesome" Rhodes in "A Face In The Crowd".



    RIP Andy.

I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    yeah, too bad he wasnt the same man in person as he was on TV....iv heard people say that he could be rude and snub them if they asked for an autograph, even their kids, but iv heard that about other celebrities too.......aside from that, The Andy Griffith Show was one of all time favorites as it was many other peoples living in NC

    He was more than just the Andy Griffith Show. He was a great "homespun" stand-up comedian in his own right.

    It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

    All the more reason to like him, IMO. He was always the good voice of reason.
