Mr. Felton was the rural mail deliveryman to Sam Jones' farm, and thus held the titular job implied by the series name, Mayberry R.F.D. In addiiton to delivering mail, he was a part of the social glue of the rural districts of Mayberry. As seen in "The Copy Machine", he told Mike Jones to make sure Aunt Bee knew that the Barretts had "finally heard from their daughter out in Hollywood." He drove a DeSoto at least a decade old. It had the license plate JFK-780 and, as most RFD drivers, held a temporary plaque reading "US Mail" when he was on duty.
He was played by Norman Leavitt.
