Its likely just a sign of my age, but my strongest memory of Griffith is the 'Maaaaatlooooooock' references from The Simpsons.

This is one of those "I thought he died a long time ago" moments for me.

Whistling the theme to Mayberry right now. He had a good life, very well respected amongst his peers. RIP in Andy
