Today we’re inducting the last of the May Queens into the Television Crossover Hall of Fame. (For the last week of May, the Friday Hall of Famer will be the Toobworld televersion of the TV show which showcased one of Toobworld’s greatest queens.)
But for this Friday, we’re taking a trip down to Mayberry, North Carolina. For a small country town, Mayberry certainly has racked up quite a few members of the Hall; this will mark the seventh. As Melissa Steadman once said, “Seven – it would be a mythic number.”
