    Hey Gang
    I am working on a list of missing scenes and such from the Andy Griffith DVD's. can anyone remember all of the defects with the DVD sets.

    Season Three

    "The Darlings are Coming" is edited.

    "Barney Mends a Broken Heart" is edited missing epilogue.

    "Andy & Opie Bachelors has a missing epilogue"

    there's a brief dialogue exchange missing with Otis where he says he's celebrating the anniversary of his first drink in "Barney and the Governor".

    Season Four

    Missing Laugh Tracks for:

    "Opie The Birdman"
    "A Black Day For Mayberry"
    "Opie's Ill-Gotten Gain"
    "Up In Barney's Room."

    Does any one have anything to add to the list? Thanks!!

    I believe the laugh tracks were restored in the complete series set; I know my 50th anniversary disc had laugh tracks restored on "Opie the Birdman," which is why I double-dipped for it.

    "A Black Day For Mayberry" still had minor laugh track issues on my complete set. Also forgot to mention that "Opie and his Merry Men had a section where the screen does black for a few seconds.

    The Darlings Are Coming episode on the season set also had pretty bad video quality, iirc.

    The lines about Otis' "first drink" occur in the episode "Citizen's Arrest" I think instead of "Barney and the Governor." I've not seen either in a while so I may be mistaken but I only remember this being mentioned one time in the show and I'm certain it was in the former, not the latter.

    Let's hope CBS is looking into restoring the missing bits. :)

    DSmith1984 you are right. Citizens Arrest is the place where Otis celebrates the anniversary of his first drink. Good catch. Thanks!!

    Off topic but worth sharing. Otis (under a different character name of course) was on a S1 episode of Adam-12 playing a delightful drunk who was driving and didn't have a license!

    He was also on another Martin Milner show Route 66 where he played, you guessed it, another drunk. It too was an early episode of that series. In that one Martin Milner throws him to the ground for sitting on his beloved Corvette.

    He also starred in "The Great Race" feature film as the mayor of some small Arizona town. Great film too.

    I looked at his filmography last night and it appears he was in a LOT of stuff!
