Mayberry R.F.D. - 'The Complete 1st Season' of the Spin-Off from The Andy Griffith Show

The Ken Berry-starring continuation will be on DVD at last this April

Posted by David Lambert
    Mayberry R.F.D. is a spin-off and direct continuation of The Andy Griffith Show under a new title, for the same sponsor, General Foods. When Andy Griffith decided to leave his series, most of the supporting characters returned for the new program, which ran for three seasons (78 episodes) on the CBS Television Network from 1968–1971. During the final season of The Andy Griffith Show, widower farmer Sam Jones (Ken Berry) and his young son Mike (Buddy Foster) are introduced and gradually become the show's focus. Sheriff Andy Taylor takes a backseat in the storylines, establishing the sequel series. The show's first episode, "Andy and Helen's Wedding," had the highest ratings in recorded television history (up to premiere date in 1968). Sheriff Taylor and newlywed wife Helen make guest appearances on RFD until late 1969, and then relocate with Opie. Mayberry RFD was popular throughout its entire run!
A spin-off show which lasted until 1971 (when the network [in]famously cancelled all of it's rural-based shows...and let's face it, "R.F.D." was a post office term for "Rural Free Delivery"!), Warner Home Video is finally bringing to DVD the initial season of the program which starred Ken Berry (Mama's Family): Mayberry R.F.D. - The Complete 1st Season. This set is full of 26 episodes, at a cost of just $29.98 SRP, and will be in stores beginning April 8th. has a listing for the title (see button link below), but as of this writing they haven't begun accepting pre-orders at that entry; they ought to begin very soon, though! Here's the packaging:
