* {{Flanderization}}: Andy being the OnlySaneMan in Mayberry becomes more and more obvious, especially in the last three seasons, almost to the point where it seems he harbors some contempt for the EccentricTownsfolk around him.

* ForgottenThemeTuneLyrics: "Come on, take down your fishin pole and meet me at the fishin hole/I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day." A ThematicThemeTune -- which makes sense, since the title doesn't lend itself to verse.
