THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW: CHRISTMAS SPECIAL REVIEWED

“The Andy Griffith Show: Christmas Special” is a repackage of the first two Christmas timed episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. Released to CBS TV as a colorized package during the 2015 Holiday season, you can now enjoy it at home. The two adventures range from helping a Bootlegger’s family to dealing with Aunt Bee’s kerosene pickles. Everybody has a good laugh and that’s about all there is to it.

It’s a fun romp with two of the show’s best early episodes. The only kick is that the colorization feels off. I always hated colorization efforts because it feels like an attempt to appease an audience that was never going to watch the show in the first place. Still, pick it up.
