The Andy Griffith Show: Aunt Bee’s Medicine Man – Season 3, Episode 24 (1963)

DVD: March 11, 1963 – Aunt Bee’s Medicine Man After worrying about her age and health, Aunt Bee falls for the sales pitch of a fast-talking medicine man and his “Indian Elixir.” Barney tries to make himself look like a publicity photo of Rock Hudson. This episode features Mayberry’s first actual death: Augusta “Gussie” Finch at 10:30 AM. Aunt Bee gives the Taylor’ address as 332 Maple Road. Colonel Harvey’s “Indian Elixir” is 85% alcohol. Andy says Aunt Bee is such a teetotaler that she will not allow even a fruitcake in the house, on account of “a brother she had.” Beatrice Taylor (commonly known as Aunt Bee) is a fictional character from the 1960s American television sitcom The Andy Griffith Show. The show was televised on CBS from October 3, 1960, until April 1, 1968. The character migrated to the spinoff Mayberry RFD (1968–1971) when The Andy Griffith Show ended its run. Note that though she was the aunt of Sheriff Andy Taylor, virtually every character in Mayberry called her “Aunt Bee”, regardless of whether they were related to her or not. Aunt Bee is the paternal aunt of widower Sheriff Andy Taylor and great-aunt to his son Opie Taylor. In the premiere episode of The Andy Griffith Show, “The New Housekeeper”, Aunt Bee returns to Mayberry after a five-year sojourn in Morgantown, West Virginia, when Andy’s housekeeper Rose marries and leaves his house. Aunt Bee thereafter manages Andy’s household and becomes Opie’s surrogate mother

    @taypar11 Its called acting, not only entertainment, but also a form of making a living. Just in case u didnt know , Barney was actually an actor called Don Knotts following a script. . Did u like Queen, Elton John, aunt bea., brady bunch, and at least 50% of entertainers and the people in the entertainment business?..Not that it matters , I’m hetero, I’m not defending anything except opened minded-ness. I dont wanna cause a dialog-war at all. Man, don’t be a hater, just enjoy the good things!

    I need some Indian Elixir right now.

    Man, I hope Barney was just using that picture of Rock Hudson as a blueprint for how he should look, not act. Rock was a queer and I hope Barney wasn’t one. I just hate people like Hudson, DeGeneres and O.Donnell who make their mark and fortune under false pretences and then come out of the closet expecting the gneral public to say it’s alright and “please accept me now” that I told you the truth about myself. It’s a Millie Vannille thing. Role playing-lip synching, plain old deception.

    Lord Jesus Christ still loves and saves from sins and He can save to the uttermost your money can not buy it your works can not buy it only Him. Feel´╗┐ free to ask me how to be saved
