** Andy Griffith wanted black actors to have prominent roles in the series, but he was barred from this because of the fact that, being before the Civil Rights laws era, many southern CBS affiliates would have refused to air the show. This resulted in only a very occasional black extra showing up as a background character in very few episodes, with more prominent characters appearing in the spinoff only, and Mayberry didn't get any solid black characters until the RFD sequel/retool series many years later.
