The Andy Griffith Show

George Lindsey

Goober Pyle

George "Goober" Lindsey has made a career of playing Goober, Gomer Pyle's bungling cousin on The Andy Griffith Show. He played Goober on Hee Haw for 20 years while also making nightclub appearances as George "Goober" Lindsey in places like Las Vegas, Reno and Lake Tahoe. Although perpetually typecast, Lindsey can be seen in reruns of Gunsmoke, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, M*A*S*H and Matlock. He also has appeared in several feature films, from The Blob to Cannonball Run 2. Later in his career, Lindsey had guest-starring roles on such shows as News Radio and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. He also penned an autobiography entitled Goober in a Nutshell.

Character Bio

After his cousin Gomer leaves Mayberry, Goober takes over running Wally's Gas Station. Goober can be quite challenging to deal with as he is often bungling the simplest of tasks. In one of Goober's more intelligent moments, he purchases the station from Wally and goes into business for himself.
