No trip to Mayberry is complete without a stop at Wally's Filling Station known really as Tour Mayberry Squad Car Tours. We have done the official Squad Car Tours a couple of times in the past and they are a lot of fun. Also on the premises are several neat areas for photos ops: The Darlings cabin, Wally's, a downtown storefront, various vehicles, and the Mayberry Court House with a complete interior replica.
Goober says "hey", but he also says in episode "TV or Not TV" (S05E23):
"I've been deputized a couple of times too. Did you know that? Just during emergencies. Every Halloween I'm in charge of guarding the cannon in the park. Kids are always filling it full of orange peelin's, and potaters and rotten tomaters...things like that. It's real disrespectful."
Ever since I've been in charge of guarding that cannon they ain't even as much as got a grape in it."
Goober happened to be off duty!
We also took the opportunity to take a grainy, blurry black and white picture inside the courthouse.
We love coming up with and staging photo set ups. Here are a few more along with past visits to Wally's and the Courthouse :
