This spin-off of THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW featured beloved mechanic Gomer Pyle entering the Marine Corps. Jim Nabors played Pyle, resurrecting the character's catchphrases, including "Surprise, surprise, surprise!" and "Shazam!" said in Pyle's trademark Southern drawl. His genial goofiness often clashed with the brashness of Sgt. Vince Carter (Frank Sutton), providing much of the show's humor. This release features the first season of the series.
