Two Chairs No Waiting 291: Howard McNear Cuts Up

Two Chairs No Waiting - Andy Griffith Show Fan Podcast can be found at

I love it when listeners help me find great content for the podcast and this episode is exactly that.  Randy Bewer sent me an e-mail with a link to a story from the May 7, 1961 edition of The Milwaukee Sentinel titled,  McNear: Barber Who 'Cuts Up' and it was gold.

I've been involved with The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) for going on 30 years and I had never seen nor heard about this article by United Press International writer J.A. Amant.  I hope you enjoy this little nugget even half as much as I did when I first read it.  It's kind of like finding a lost bit of history.

You'll also get to hear a little about the 2014 Mayberry Meet-up held in Mt. Airy in July.  A fun time was had by all and I encourage you to get out there and visit with your friends and family....turn them in the Mayberry fans if you can.

Two Chairs No Waiting - Andy Griffith Show Podcast 174:
 Hooked on Mayberry

I know the listeners to Two Chairs No Waiting are all big fans of The Andy Griffith Show but we all have friends who are not fans.   How can that be?  Did their parents not raise them right?  Have they been brainwashed into the belief that the show is too "country" or "hickish?"  Do they not have a funny bone?

Maybe they just haven't been exposed to the fun that Mayberry has to offer?  Yeah, that must be it!

So let's figure that they just haven't seen The Andy Griffith Show.  I mean really "seen" the show. Actually sat down and paid attention for 30 minutes.  That must be why they aren't hooked.

Figuring that, what 5 episodes of The Andy Griffith Show will get them hooked like a starving catfish?

5. The Loaded Goat -  Cy Hudgins brings his goat Jimmy to town for one day, and Jimmy gets himself "loaded" on a cache of dynamite. Faced with the menace of a goat who could go "blooie" at any moment, Andy and Barney have to figure a way of getting him out of town. As it turns out, music does soothe the savage beast and Barney plays his harmonica and leads him out beyond the city limits.

4. Barney's Sidecar -  Determined to nip the speeding on highway 6 in the bud, Barney purchases a motorcycle and sidecar at a military surplus auction. With the town up in arms over Barney's new toy, Andy tricks Barney into donating the motorcycle to a museum.
3. Mountain Wedding -  Andy and Barney visit the Darlings to rid them of Ernest T. Bass, who has his mind set on marrying daughter Charlene. In this debut for Ernest T, Barney ends up being the bride.
2. The Pickle Story -  It's canning time again, and Aunt Bee has put up another batch of pickles. After realizing the only thing they're good for is killing flies brave enough to land on them, Andy and Barney decide to substitute store-bought for her homemade and hand out the originals to travelers passing through Mayberry. After the switch, Bee decides to enter her pickles in the county fair. Unfortunately, the perennial winner is Clara Johnson, Bee's best friend, and she has her heart set on winning her 12th blue ribbon in a row. Andy and Barney have no choice but to get rid of all eight jars before she can enter, so they eat night and day until all the pickles are gone. They do their work proudly, but Bee decides that since the boys liked them so much, she will make a double batch.
1.Convicts at Large -  Barney and Floyd are held hostage by a gang of escaped female convicts who have been hiding in O'Malley's cabin outside of town. Andy, who spots Floyd (with one of the convicts)in town buying groceries, thinks they have a little party going on until O'Malley arrives back in town on the bus. Andy and O'Malley engineer a clever scheme and capture all but the ringleader, Big Maude, whom Barney manages to tango out the door and into cuffs.
