    RIP Goober




    George 'Goober' Lindsey of 'Andy Griffith Show' and 'Hee Haw' fame dead at 83

    Updated 11:15 a.m. PT: NASHVILLE, Tenn. — George Lindsey, who spent nearly 30 years as the grinning Goober on "The Andy Griffith Show" and "Hee Haw," has died. He was 83.

    A press release from Marshall-Donnelly-Combs Funeral Home in Nashville said Lindsay died early Sunday morning after a brief illness. Funeral arrangements were still being made.

    Lindsey was the beanie-wearing Goober on "The Andy Griffith Show" from 1964 to 1968 and its successor, "Mayberry RFD," from 1968 to 1971. He played the same jovial character – a service station attendant – on "Hee Haw" from 1971 until it went out of production in 1993. (more)


    When contacted for comment, Gomer wept inconsolably.

    I disagree.

    Gomer was a hard character to replace and I think he did a good job.

    It was the hat that bothered me.

    You cant buy a hat like that in a small town like Mayberry.

    It must have been hand hewn. Its goal; to attract small childrens.

    The first time he walked out to the gas pump wearing that hat with that stupid **** eating grin on his face should have been the moment the shunning began.

    Instead, we got 30 years of that ****.

    Hee Haw wreaked havoc with my hormones.

    As for Goober, never cared too much for the country bumpkin schtick.
