Andy Griffith: "I don’t think that we any of us ever overtly thought about that. I wanted to keep the characters clean. If a joke would make a liar out of a character we’d throw the joke out and that became very important, it became a basic rule, and because of the nature of the show, morality just came right along with it….

“The document, released by the courts, claims the now-defunct file-sharing company Megaupload had copies of Love Birds, starring Rhys Darby, and Tracker, starring Temuera Morrison, on its servers” (NZ Herald).
