A female prisoner tries to work her magic on Andy and Barney.


Andy is taken in by the charms of a seductive The Female Prisoner. He can't get the image of her out of his mind. He realizes that perhaps Barney is under the same seduction as he himself was. He returns to the courthouse to check on things, and arrives just in time to prevent her escape.


  • The title is from the 1931 song "Prisoner Of Love" with music by Russ Columbo and Clarence Gaskill and lyrics by Leo Robin popularized by Perry Como.
  • The unnamed prisoner was given the name Angela Carroll in an un-produced script. Perhaps it was decided that the lack of a name added to the sense of mystery.
  • In Andy and the Woman Speeder Sheriff Taylor says that, by law, a female prisoner must have a matron. This law was overlooked in this episode.
  • This episode is very sensual and unique and was possibly the most unusual episode in the entire series.
  • This is one of only two episodes where a female is shown smoking, the other being Convicts-at-Large.
  • This episode is available on DVD without the laugh track, but is usually broadcast with it.
