There are plenty of hilarious scenes in The Andy Griffith Show. Can you think of a few? Reportedly, Don Knotts, who played Barney Fife, found one scene so funny that he couldn’t get through it without laughing… about 20 times.

In the episode, “Guest of Honor” during season two of the series, there was a scene that Don just couldn’t get through. He had to deliver a speech to three new deputies, Sam (Sherwood Keith), Art the Grocer (Frank Warren), and Floyd the Barber (Howard McNear).
