There were many actors and other real people who were mentioned, but did not actually appear on The Andy Griffith Show. I thought it might be fun to try to name some. We all know that Barney and Thelma Lou love George Raft movies! Howard and Andy discussed what notable quotation Calvin Coolidge said. Barney in the episode "Aunt Bee's Medicine Man" is seen combing his hair trying to look like Rock Hudson! There is a photograph of Hudson shown.

I think is one of the new times that a real life actor's photograph appeared in the show. If anyone knows of any others please post them.
What about Leonard Blush
Thanks Frank. I was thinking more of real people who were mentioned on the show but did not appear in person. Your mentioning Leonard Blush is great, and I am going to start a discussion about characters who never appear on screen. Leonard is actually one of those very rare character's that you hear but do not see. The voice of singer Leonard Blush was Howard Morris. Morris also did the voice of the radio announcer in "The Family Visit" episode.
CARY GRANT is another actor that is mentioned on the show. Goober does his famous "Judy, Judy, Judy" impersonation of him in the "Fun Girls" episode.
EDWARD G. ROBINSON is another actor that Goober not only impersonates but claims also to look like.
Thanks Frank. You know I think you are right it seems to me Andy did tease Aunt Bee about Rock Hudson I will have to try to find it. I need to find my Edward G. Robinson autograph to post too. I do not have Hudson I don't think.
Edward G. Robinson is a great autograph to own!
