My intention here is to have people upload authentic autographs of actors and actresses that have appeared on the "Andy Griffith Show." This is a bit of a daunting task since this show had many more episodes per season than modern television. The first season of "TAGS" had a whopping 39 episodes. Well over 500 actors appeared in various roles on the show during its run.  Of course many that appeared were in uncredited roles. Many others played various characters and "extra" parts.   Internet Movie Data Base is the most useful tool and anyone interested in more information on the actors/actresses should check there. Colin Male is listed as being in one episode, but he was also the voice-over announcer in 65 episodes. For my purposes in my personal collecting I count him only for this actual onscreen appearance.  So I hope this group will spawn some renewed interest in this wonderful show and the many great stars that appeared  on it.  Also hopefully we can add some interesting trivia about the show and stars.  If people have met stars from the show would love to hear those accounts as well.  Hopefully this will be as friendly and warm as Mayberry itself.

One interesting thing about the show is that some characters are so strong you think they were in scores of episodes yet, in reality, they were in very few. Of the 249 episodes (250 if you count the Pilot which I do) filmed only Andy himself…Continue

Mayberry R. F. D. is despised by many Andy Griffith fans, which is too bad I think.  Just like many will not watch color episodes.  I myself love the whole series and really like Mayberry R. F. D. although not to the same degree of course.  You…Continue

I am starting this in hopes people will add their real Andy Griffith autographs and the Linke "secretarial" ones for comparison.  Since the death of Andy Griffith I have noticed a growing appreciation of the man and actor.  He was much more than…Continue

Comment by Joe W. on March 12, 2015 at 6:32pm


My recently acquired Andy.

Comment by Tim Henderson on March 12, 2015 at 6:42pm
That's a nice andy and a authentic one not secretarial like a lot of his! Are u gonna frame it up?
Comment by Joe W. on March 12, 2015 at 6:45pm

Thanks. It's encapsulated, so I will probably leave it like that. Outside of a check, it's the only authentic Andy I've come cross in quite awhile. As you mentioned, TONS of secretarial out there. He really wasn't a fan friendly kinda man. I think he enjoyed his privacy. I can respect that. He was a tremendous talent.

Comment by Scott Paul on March 12, 2015 at 6:46pm

Hard to come by Andy Griffith signed cards so congratulations Joe.

Comment by Joe W. on March 12, 2015 at 6:47pm

Comment by Tim Henderson on March 12, 2015 at 6:47pm
