On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Plot Overview

Aunt Bee is thrilled when her much-traveled cousin, Bradford J. Taylor, writes to inform her that he will be coming to Mayberry for a visit. She has always enjoyed hearing from him with his tales of travel to far away and exotic locales and his many and varied business ventures. The only problem is that it's all a sham. Andy catches on pretty quickly when he catches Bradford arriving in Mayberry in a boxcar. Andy doesn't want to upset Aunt Bee and so says very little about what he knows but when Bradford starts to propose setting up a business selling Aunt Bee's home-made ice cream - with several of the townsfolk investing - Andy thinks it's time for him to move on.
