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.
