Joe Hamilton - Sometimes known as Chester Jones.


This face is one of the most familiar faces in Mayberry who wasn't a main character. Chester, as he was sometimes known, seemed to always be around as an antagonist of Barney. He was sometimes referred to as a "old loafer". He was hardly ever alone, but usually with other background actors such as Jud (Burt Mustin). He was also known as Jase and Choney. He was the one who tricked Barney into writing a ticket on the Governor's car. Memorable lines of this familiar charactar include "Get a Horse Barney" .....

Above left Chester says hello to Andy after Barney had arrested the whole town and Andy releases them all for a quick hearing. Above right, as Jase, he listens intently to Gomer's Berty Blush story.
