Complete Character Listing

TAGSRWC has a fairly complete character database which is searchable. At this point there is no reason to recreate that entire listing here. Instead, visit either the Cast Member/Episode Database or the Mayberry Cast Birthday's locations on the and websites for the character listings. We will be adding character and actor biographies here as Gossip Clubbers have time to add them. Below you will see the current listings.
