A lively and revealing biography of Andy Griffith and Don Knotts, this “humorous, informative, and poignant book” celebrates the powerful real-life friendship behind one of America’s most iconic television programs and “shows how the magic was created” (Library Journal). Andy Griffith and Don Knotts first met on Broadway in the 1950s. When Andy moved to Hollywood to film a TV pilot for a comedy about a small-town sheriff, Don called to ask if Andy’s sheriff could use a deputy. The friendship and comedy partnership between Sheriff Andy Taylor and Deputy Barney Fife ignited The Andy Griffith Show, elevating the folksy television sitcom into a timeless study of human friendship. Together, they created a program with a uniquely small-town dynamic that captured the hearts of Americans across the country who watched these two men rocking on the front porch, meditating about the pleasure of a bottle of pop. But behind this sleepy charm, de Visé’s exclusive reporting “captures the complexity of both men and the intimacy of their friendship with extreme detail and sensitivity” (Publishers Weekly), from unspoken rivalries, passionate affairs, unrequited loves, struggles with the temptations of fame, and friendships lost and regained. Although Andy and Don ended their Mayberry partnership in 1965, they remained best friends for the next half-century. Written by Don Knotts’s brother-in-law, Andy and Don is “a rewarding dual biography that is also a lively look inside the entertainment industry in the latter half of the twentieth century” (News & Observer). Entertaining and provocative, it “captures a golden moment in modern Americana. You’ll not only return again to Mayberry, you’ll feel as though you’ve never left” (Tom Shales, Pulitzer Prize–winning television critic).

On the February 2, 1960, episode of The Danny Thomas Show, entertainer Danny Williams (Danny Thomas) is arrested for a traffic violation by a small-town sheriff named Andy Taylor, played by a good-natured Southern actor named Andy Griffith. Thus was born one of the most popular television shows of the 1960s—The Andy Griffith Show. From the time it officially debuted in October 1960, The Andy Griffith Show was a perennial favorite on CBS, finishing its eight-year run as the top-rated show on television. It also produced some of the most remembered characters (Andy, Opie, Aunt Bee, and Barney Fife) of the era. Each of the show’s 249 episodes is fully detailed here, including air dates, cast and production personnel, guest stars, and a bevy of facts about that particular episode. The 1986 television movie Return to Mayberry is covered in detail. Brief biographies of the show’s major stars, producers, directors and writers are also provided.

Mount Airy North Carolina was the birthplace of the late actor Andy Griffith and Historian Tom Perry. In this memoir of their hometown, Perry tells the story of the real Mayberry and his thoughts of the most famous son of the piedmont North Carolina town. This book is part memoir, part biography and part tour guide about Andy Griffith and Mount Airy, North Carolina. Beginning on the day Andy Griffith died, July 3, 2012, Perry tells about the town that day and goes back in time to bring Griffith and his own family to Mount Airy to work in the factories in the twentieth century. Sharing his connections with Griffith, Perry tells about the youth both shared in Mount Airy. The book then follows Andy Griffith to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Goldsboro to teach school and then Broadway, television and movies in a career that lasted decades. The book also details the effect of Andy Griffith on Mount Airy with the decades long tourism boom that began in the 1980s with the town taking on the persona of the fictional Mayberry that Griffith obviously used to in his highly successful Andy Griffith Show that ran on CBS for eight years ending its run as the number one show on television.
