The Arrest of the Fun Girls 

Two flashy girls from Mount Pilot get a speeding ticket and cause romantic complications for Andy and Barney.


Richard Powell (as Richard M. Powell)

Andy Griffith ... Andy Taylor
Ron Howard ... Opie Taylor (as Ronny Howard)

Andy and Barney have to break a date with Helen and Thelma Lou because of work but panic sets in when the fun girls, Daphne and Skippy, drop in to see 'Doll' and 'Bernie'. Rather than just be up front with their girlfriends, Andy and Barney set up an elaborate plan where Barney will stay at the courthouse with the girls and Andy will go meet Helen and Thelma Lou. It doesn't quite work however and the girlfriends walk into the courthouse to find the boys and the fun girls apparently having a party. It takes awhile for them to eventually convince their girlfriends that they weren't cheating. Having patched things up, they all go out together but have a bit of a surprise when they get back to Andy's house. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


This is the only episode of the series to feature both Betty Lynn (Thelma Lou)and Hal Smith (Otis Campbell). The two characters have no scenes together though. See more »


When Andy and Barney are chasing the Fun Girls to stop their speeding through town, they turn a corner just as the girls pull over. The street they stop them on clearly shows a set of street car tracks in the middle of the road, a public works feature that would not have existed in a small town such as Mayberry. See more »


Andy Taylor: Now listen, you girls were doin' 45 miles an hour in a 20 mile zone.
Daphne: Oh, aren't we terrible?
Skippy: Yeah, take us to jail.

The Joke Has Run Its Course
18 December 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Those two women from Mt. Pilot are pretty funny, but this is now the fourth time we've seen them. Every episode is the same. They end up with Andy and Barney and Thelma Lou and Helen jump to conclusions (rightfully so, I guess). It's just that there is nothing new. They are brash and the boys just can't handle them. I hope they don't show up again (that goes for the Darlings as well).
