CBS airs the new Andy Griffith Show Christmas Special on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, at 8pm ET/PT. This one-hour special features two newly colorized back-to-back episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. In “Christmas Story” (1960), Andy (Andy Griffith) and Barney’s (Don Knotts) plans for a joyful holiday at home are interrupted when one of them has to guard a prisoner. Then in “The Pickle Story” (1961), Andy and Barney switch Aunt Bea’s (Frances Bavier) unappetizing homemade pickles with store-bought ones. Things get complicated when Aunt Bea wants to enter the county fair’s pickle competition.
