That's too bad. My father still watches Matlock today. At least he got up there, 86 is pretty good.

Grew up on it. Even though he was in his Matlock days when I was a kid, we still watch The Andy Griffith Show.

I was very sad to hear this today.
In College, when we didn't have cable TV, Andy Griffith, and MASH were my bread and butter. I love those shows dearly, and AG always made me feel better when I was down.

RIP Andy Griffith.


On a facetious note, Don Knotts died in 2006, George Lindsey (Goober) died in May, Andy Griffith just passed. . . is Ron Howard next!?

Same here. Always watched the reruns when they were on. Not enough guys like him left and that's a sad thought.

The Andy Griffith Show was a staple of my childhood, and I'm not embarrassed to admit that I enjoyed a Matlock or two as well. Andy was also excellent in various other appearances.

If you never saw him play a heavy, you might have assumed that he always played the folksy, white-bread good guy, but that wasn't all he could do. Sure he got a bit typecast, but that's a testament to how good he was in those iconic roles. But he could bring the nasty.

RIP, Andy!

Considering Ron Howard was about ~35 years younger than the rest, I would imagine he'll be around for a while.
