Green Featured Character
Thelma Lou—

Thelma Lou is Barney Fife's girlfriend on The Andy Griffith Show. Thelma Lou's last name and occupation are never revealed, however in one episode she mentions getting back to the office. Her two cousins are Mary Grace Gossage and Karen Moore. She lives in a small, quaint home within Mayberry city limits - making Barney's ice cream deliveries much quicker.


Green Featured episode


Barney and Floyd are held hostage by a gang of escaped female convicts who have been hiding in O'Malley's cabin outside of town. Andy, who spots Floyd in town buying groceries (with one of the convicts), thinks they have a little party going on until O'Malley arrives back in town on the bus. Andy and O'Malley engineer a clever scheme to capture the women.
Green Featured criminal
Otis Campbell—

Otis Campbell was the "town drunk" in Mayberry and probably the most well-known prisoner in the courthouse. Otis was played by Hal Smith and made frequent appearances on the show from 1960 to 1967, and stopped appearing in the show towards the end of the series due to concerns by the show's sponsors over the portrayal of excessive drinking. Otis works as a glue dipper in a furniture factory.
