Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Season One of The Andy Griffith Show came to a close on May 22, 1961, with the episode titled "Bringing Up Opie." Aunt Bee decides that Opie shouldn't be spending so much time hanging around the town jail where his sheriff father Andy works. Her opinion seems to be confirmed when Opie ends up handcuffing one of his playmates to the school flagpole. Eventually, though, Aunt Bee realizes that it is better to keep Andy and Opie together as much as possible. "Bringing Up Opie" was written by Jack Elinson and Charles Stewart.
