Plot Summary

A hollywood producer visits Mayberry and, taken with the town's charm, decides to use it as the setting of a new film. The town members become screen-struck and busily go about giving Mayberry a face-lift, changing everything the producer liked. Just before the citizens are about to cut down a landmark oak tree, the producer stops them and tells them what Mayberry's appeal was to him: the townspeople's simple, honest, down-to-earth ways.
