Barney made the show in my opinion. I love the other characters too of course but Barney was hilarious.

Best show of all time my kids and grandchildren love it

I think the Andy Griffith show was absolute genius and brilliant casting chemistry at its best. Still a pleasure to watch. Funny and wonderful in every way. I still watch it daily.The very best.

Heart warming and sappy. Who doesn't like the antics of Barney Fife and the rest of the Mayberry oddballs? - kayebea

3 I Love Lucy

Lucy is great, this is one of my top 3 shows of all time! Friends & The Big bang Theory are excellent, but I wouldn't call them family shows. Also, Lucy is such an easy watch, it has a relaxed feeling to it, but it still is a comedy show and probably one of the funniest! Watch I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show or Here's Lucy and you will enjoy yourself. Lucille Ball will not let you down.

This show stood it's time, I'm a teenager and it's my third favourite show, will not disappoint families.

I Love Lucy! I never pop out when this is on, and it's still poopular today.

N.B. for those who don't get that joke, I do know how to spell. It's a joke from the episode "Lucy Does A T.V. commercial. "

Two BFF's show their loyalty and love in this hilarious sit-com that paved the way for many more great comedies to come. - kayebea

My favorite show! It never gets old. Also Ethel is such a fun character even better than Lucy in my opinion.
