Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Andy, Opie and Barney haven't the heart to tell Aunt Bee that her freshly preserved pickles taste like kerosene. Rather than hurt Bee's feelings, the boys surreptitiously replace her pickles with the store-bought variety, all the while praising Bee for her "magic touch" in the kitchen. Their well-meaning plan backfires when Bee decides to enter her pickles in a blue-ribbon competition. First telecast on December 18, 1961, "The Pickle Story" was written by Harvey Bullock.
