Best Color Episodes of the Andy Griffith Show

HighWiredSith
Best episodes after Don Knotts left and the show began broadcasting in color. The color episodes are widely regarded as inferior and/or less funny that the black and white seasons but there are still a few gems worth watching and rewatching.
