Sam Jones, a local farmer, is elected to the Mayberry council. Like Andy Taylor, Sam is a widower raising a young. Sam hires Aunt Bee as his housekeeper after Andy marries his sweetheart and moves away. The show chronicles Sam's dealings with the citizens of Mayberry as well as his home life.
The sequel's plot follows Sam and Mike Jones in stories reminiscent of the parent series. Both characters are introduced in the last season of The Andy Griffith Show (TAGS), beginning with Sam's election as head of town council. The two become the center of Mayberry R.F.D. with many performers from the Griffith show reprising their roles in the sequel.
Sheriff Andy Taylor and his sweetheart, Helen Crump (Aneta Corsaut), marry in the sequel's first episode. Each makes additional appearances, (mostly Andy) then leave the series in late 1969, with a move to Raleigh as the explanation.
Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier) becomes Sam's housekeeper but leaves after the second season to be replaced by Sam's cousin, Alice Cooper (Alice Ghostley). Mayberry regulars Goober Pyle (George Lindsey), Clara Edwards (Hope Summers), Emmett Clark (Paul Hartman), and Howard Sprague (Jack Dodson) are seen regularly. Don Knotts and Ronny Howard, as Barney Fife and Opie Taylor (respectively), appear in the first episode.
Actress Arlene Golonka (who plays Howard Sprague's sweetheart Millie Hutchins in the Griffith show) becomes Sam's love interest, Millie Swanson, in the sequel.
