Mayberry and abstraction

From The Andy Griffith Show episode “The Wedding,” March 4, 1968. Howard Sprague speaking:

“You see, Goober, abstract paintings are not representational.”
Yes, it’s the episode in which Howard creates a swinging bachelor pad. You can watch here. Joseph Bonaduce, the episode’s writer, deserves great credit for this bit of weirdness.

Howard might have been the weirdest character on that show. Certainly the most awkward and out of place.

Yes. I love Howard’s nerdiness. (Autocorrect thinks that should be neediness.)
