Local Author Of Book About ''Andy Griffith Show'' Remembers Beloved TV Icon


A local man who co-authored a book about the Andy Griffith Show says Griffith’s great legacy may be the enduring love letter to small-town America that he helped create.

 

Griffith died Tuesday at the age of 86.

 

Back in the 1990s, Dale Robinson of Jacksonville wrote a detailed episode-by-episode guide of the popular sitcom with his friend, the late David Fernandes.  Robinson says that although Griffith was never credited as a director or writer, nothing happened on the classic 1960s series without his approval.  As a result, Robinson says the show paid tribute to all-American virtues without becoming silly or sarcastic.
