1991 Pacific The Andy Griffith Show - Series 3

The Andy Griffith Show was a great show for so many reasons. Comedy, shenanigans, problems, and sometimes even a little law enforcement.
This set of cards came out in 1991, a good 23 years after The Andy Griffith show went off the air.

 Here is Sheriff Andy Taylor serving himself at Wally's.
 Barney Fife's motorcycle escapades.
 Looks like Ernest got caught throwing rocks.
 The core four: Barney, Andy, Aunt Bea, and Opie, celebrating the latter's birthday.
 Andy, Barney, and Gomer are making a run for it in the haunted house.
 I don't have any idea what is going on in this picture.
 Here is a rare, behind the scene shots of Ron Howard and his (Actual) father playing checkers on set.
 Barney and Andy before a fishing trip.
 Goober, up to his trousers in motor oil.
And finally, Howard and the crew celebrating a bowling victory.

Too bad no Otis :(

A show that still holds up after 50 years. I have all three sets. If you watch Cubs broadcasts you might hear an Andy Griffith reference from Jim Deshaies.

You are right... I was born in 88 and it always resonated with me as a kid.

It's slightly related, and unfortunately I cannot find video of it, but I always loved when Paciorek would break out his Mr. Haney impression during broadcasts:
