Storyline

Gomer Pyle was a sweet but not-too-smart U.S. Marine from Mayberry, North Carolina who was stationed at Camp Henderson near Los Angeles, California. Gomer's innocence, naivete, and low-key demeanor often got him into trouble, most frequently at the hands of his loud-mouthed superior, Sergeant Carter. Duke, Frankie, Lester, and Larry were some of Gomer's pals and fellow enlisted men at Camp Henderson, and Lou Anne Poovie was his sometime girlfriend. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

Frank Sutton, whose best-known role was as Gunnery Sgt. Vince Carter in this series, could not pass the US Marine Corps physical during World War II, and ended up serving in the U.S. Army.

Goofs

When Gomer, Sgt. Carter, and the majority of the other Marines are wearing their green fatigues, the shirts have "V"-shaped pocket flaps over the buttons and have the Marine Corps emblem and USMC on the left pocket But Slater always wears a fatigue shirt with square pocket flaps, exposed buttons, and no emblem on the left pocket, indicating that his fatigue is from another service branch. Sometimes "extras" are seen wearing the same top. See more »

fun show from the 60's
23 September 2006 | by graynt1See all my reviews

I ve always enjoyed "Gomer Pyle" Frank Sutton played Vince Carter so well..certainly one of the great supporting actors in television. Of course the situations Gomer got into were a bit unbelievable,but after all it was escapist TV in he 60's.

The first season of theshow will be released in December with commentaries and some extras including a clip from the Jim Nabors Hour,which also starred Ronnie Schell and Frank Sutton.

One of the reviewers mentioned Ronnie Schell was with the show the entire run. He was not in the 1967-68 season. He starred in a short lived sitcom with Joby Baker "Good Morning World" He did return in 1968 as a corporal for the remainder of the series.
