In this popular spin-off of "The Andy Griffith Show," the sweet, gullible Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors) leaves Mayberry to join the Marines, much to the chagrin of his irascible drill sergeant, Vince Carter (Frank Sutton), who often bears the brunt of his charge's bumbling antics. Although Gomer tries hard to live up to military standards, he manages to foul up even the simplest assignments, annoying Carter and endearing him to his fellow soldiers.
