Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Barney is on another of his anti-speeding crusades ("I'm gonna nip it-nip it in the bud!"), but the Mayberry police force has only one patrol car. To improve departmental efficiency, Barney purchases a WW1-vintage motorcycle and sidecar. Before long, Barney is zipping all over town, merrily issuing tickets for the slightest infraction-and of course, driving everyone crazy. Written by Jim Fritzell and Everett Greenbaum, "Barney's Sidecar" originally aired on January 27, 1964.
