Our classes have been following an episode of the Andy Griffith Show from 1962 called Andy Discovers America.  I have transcribed the entire episode and have been able to use this in a variety of ways.  We use it for reader's theater,  visual imagery, and prediction.  Most of the students have never watched the show before although as one student commented, "My grandfather really likes that show."  The students are enjoying watching the show and they find the antics of Barney to be just as funny as they were to me when I watched the show as a youngster.
