Trivia

After the rescue, the headline of The Mayberry Gazette reads, "Deputy Fife Hero in Cave Rescue". This spelling accuracy is rare as a running gag on the show is that Barney's surname is consistently misspelled in the town's newspaper, most commonly as "Fike". This front page article can later be seen framed on the courthouse wall. See more »

Goofs

When Barney is in the sheriff's office with Gomer he gathers equipment together for the rescue. As he's going through the things he has collected he incorrectly identifies a length of lumber as a "2 by 4" when it's actually a "2 by 6". See more »
