Looking at the episodes in season three, I was astounded at how many of my all-time TAGS favorites are from this season (Convicts-at-Large, Man in a Hurry, The Mayberry Band, The Cow Thief, Aunt Bee's Medicine Man, Barney's First Car, A Wife for Andy, and Barney and the Governor). Man in a Hurry is consistently voted as the best TAGS episode by fans. This season also introduced audiences to: Helen Crump, Mayor Roy Stoner, the Darlings, Ernest T. Bass, Malcolm Merrieweather, and the Fun Girls. Here's all you get:

Opie's Rival: Opie is jealous of his father's courtship with a local nurse.

Andy and Opie-Bachelors: While Aunt Bee is away, Andy and Opie are looked after by Andy's girlfriend.

Mr. McBeevee: Andy is convinced that Opie's new friend is only imaginary. I never cared for this episode but it is usually ranked highly with TAGS fans. It shows Andy's faith in his son in that he believed him without the proof of seeing the man who lives in the trees and wears a shiny hat.

Andy's Rich Girlfriend: Barney gets Andy thinking that his rich girlfriend is out of his league.

Barney Mends a Broken Heart: After Andy has a fight with Peggy, Barney arranges a date for Andy and himself with the 'fun girls' from Mt. Pilot.

Andy and the New Mayor: Andy is being closely watched by Mayberry's new mayor Roy Stoner.

The Cow Thief: The mayor doesn't have faith in Andy and Barney to catch a cattle rustler. One of my favorite episodes. One of my favorite lines is when Andy teases Barney about the plaster casts: "I like to put a little eggwhite in mine."

Floyd, the Gay Deceiver: Floyd poses as a wealthy man to impress his pen pal.

Concerning the "may be edited" message on the back of the box, for those who are worried, which is probably most everyone who loves the show-- from research, it appears that all episodes are full-length except "The Darlings are Coming," which is missing the epilogue. Sources say this was left out because of poor quality video. However, this footage is available on a public domain release, called "Best of the Andy Griffith Show," but of course the quality is considerably less.

*UPDATE* As others have pointed out, unfortunately a few of the other episodes are indeed missing footage. Here are the running times of each episode, if it helps anyone to decipher exactly which are uncut or not:

Mr. McBeevee - 25:24
Andy's Rich Girlfriend - 24:36
Andy and the New Mayor - 25:46
Andy and Opie, Bachelors - 25:41
The Cow Thief - 25:39
Barney Mends a Broken Heart - 24:34
Lawman Barney - 25:34
The Mayberry Band - 25:19
Floyd, The Gay Deceiver - 24:58
Opie's Rival - 25:15
Convicts-At-Large - 24:57
The Bed Jacket - 25:12
The Bank Job - 25:31
One-Punch Opie - 25:11
Barney and the Governor - 25:30
Man in a Hurry - 25:06
High Noon in Mayberry - 25:30
The Loaded Goat - 25:45
Class Reunion - 25:40
Rafe Hollister Sings - 25:35
Opie and the Spoiled Kid - 25:12
The Great Filling Station Robbery - 25:29
Andy Discovers America - 25:43
Aunt Bee's Medicine Man - 25:40
The Darlings Are Coming - 22:22
Andy's English Valet - 24:46
Barney's First Car - 25:49
The Rivals - 25:21
A Wife for Andy - 25:35
Dogs, Dogs, Dogs - 25:21
Mountain Wedding - 25:41
The Big House - 24:40

By the way, video/audio quality is excellent, as in previous sets, and the original sponsor ads are a nice bonus, as they were in Season 2.

The Andy Griffith Complete 3rd Season is a great collection. However, be warned The Darlings Are Coming is cut. In the jail cell scene the Darlings and Andy perform two songs. What is cut here is the second song, Salty Dog, which is sung by Charlene.
This is the song that made the episode, why is this cut? Also cut is the epilogue where Andy marries Charlene and Dud. Next The Darlings and Andy perform Cindy which is cut. There is a disclaimer on the box stating "some episodes may be edited from their original network versions" but if a season package is said to be complete why cut scenes? Note: The episode The Darlings are Coming can be found on the Platinum dvd release intact.

.....And then, on your way home from Thelma Lou's, stop by Weaver's Department Store and pick up a copy of this "Andy Griffith Show" DVD set! Just do it! (Weaver's probably sells DVDs nowadays, wouldn't ya think?) :-)

Paramount's TV-On-DVD division has delivered yet another excellent full-season TV-show boxed set with the August 16, 2005, arrival of "The Andy Griffith Show: The Complete Third Season". There are a few minutes of footage missing from a very few episodes, but I would not let that setback stop you from enjoying the greatness that is "Andy Season #3" -- because this is truly an outstanding season of programming in the history of this beloved TV series.

This handsome-looking 5-Disc DVD collection gathers together all 32 "T.A.G.S." episodes from the series' third (of eight) CBS-TV campaigns. Episodes 64 through 95 are here, which aired during the 1962-1963 television season.

Like the earlier Paramount "Andy" DVD seasonal releases, this third-season installment sports excellent video quality; and very good audio quality as well. For TV shows in this elderly age bracket, I don't see how these episodes could possibly look or sound any better. I couldn't be more pleased with these DVD transfers.

The third season of "Andy" introduces several new, recurring characters into the cast -- including "Gomer Pyle" (played by Jim Nabors) and two new girlfriends for Sheriff Andy Taylor -- "Peggy McMillan" (portrayed by the ultra-fetching Joanna Moore) and "Helen Crump" (Aneta Corsaut).

"Helen" first appeared in Episode 86 ("Andy Discovers America"; first aired on March 4, 1963), and she would remain a major part of the show's cast for the rest of the series' 5-plus years on the air.
