How well do you remember the first episode of The Andy Griffith Show?

Andy was perfection from the premiere — but can you stay perfect?

Few TV shows began in such perfect form. The Andy Griffith Show premiered on October 3, 1960, and all the core elements were there. The hilarious overeager policing of Barney Fife, the charming parenting skills of Andy Taylor, the warmth of Aunt Bee.

The glue of the episode, "The New Housekeeper," is Opie. Ron Howard, just six years old, steals scene after scene as he objects to a marriage, fixes breakfast, and threatens to run away from home. 

And, yes, it gets us every time. Even as we watch this first episode for the umpteenth time to make this quiz — well, our eyes got a little moist.
