Stuck in the world of black & white, The Andy Griffith Show remains timeless after 60+ years. It avoided then-modern hot button issues of race, war, and political strife to near stubborn perfection. A small town cast of characters helped tell stories still relevant today both in the hills and cities. The Andy Griffith Show took advantage of many comedic techniques including very subtle use of physical humor with witty banter. While it extended its run three additional years into the color era, the series is inducted into The Hall of Favorites for its monochrome days.
