Gomer Pyle USMC. Surprise Surprise Surprise!!. I loved Gomer Pyle who had a spin off show of Andy Griffith Show. He was a sweet innocent from my home state of NC. He was usually right on the money and when someone tried to get him to do the wrong thing, it all ended up screwed up. Sgt Carter really tried to get him out of the marines but around the end, Gomer was the best friend he could ever have and the Sgt tried to look after him. I loved Lou Anne Poovy.
