George Lindsay Dies: The Best of Goober Pyle (Video)

George Lindsay played the lovable simpleton Goober Pyle on ‘The Andy Griffith Show.’ In remembrance of the actor, who died Sunday night at the age of 83, here’s a look at our favorite Goober moments!

Goober and Gomer

Goober Pyle and his happy go-lucky cousin Gomer offered endless hours of comic relief on The Andy Griffith Show. After Gomer leaves Mayberry to join the Marines, Goober shocks his cousin with a surprise visit to the military base. It’s kind of like Dumb and Dumber ... we’re just not sure who’s who!

Goober Gets a Girl

Goober was great at fixing cars, but not so great with the ladies. Luckily he had the smooth-talking Andy Griffith to give him advice. Watch as Goober learns the three simple rules to talking to women: say hello, learn her interests, and don’t talk about cars!

Goober at the Auto Show

Rarely one to leave Mayberry, Goober ventured out of town for the Raleigh auto show. Not only did he get to stay in a fancy hotel, but he also ditched his grease-stained shirt for one of Andy’s suits. Don’t forget to snag a few hotel towels—they’re free!
