Andy Griffith passed away at his home in Roanoke Island, North Carolina this morning, at the age of 86. The Andy Griffith Show, along with its spin-off series Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C., was a mainstay of my early years. And just as memorable as the show itself was the show's theme song, "The Fishing Hole," co-written and whistled by the late Earle Hagen. I think this is my favorite TV show theme song without lyrics of all time! Rest in peace, Andy Griffith.
