He was on the Andy Griffith Show in some episodes that featured the Darling Family, some hill folk musicians, played by real life bluegrass band The Dillards.

He was a trouble maker out to court Charlene the Darling sister, but she was already promised. He kept trying to romance her away and even tried resorting to kidnapping in the episode " Mountain Wedding."

Our band plays some of the Dillard's songs and know the "Darling Episodes" line for line. Literally.

In the original Darling episode the family comes riding in to town in a beat up old truck and have to fill the radiator out of the horse trough, using his hat.

Andy tells Mr. Darling, played by Denver Pyle, that he's in violation of a town ordinance which states that horse troughs are for horses only.

Mr. Darling looks all around and says "There ain't a horse in sight, but if one comes 'round I'll give him the right of way".

One of my favorite lines.

The actor that portrayed Ernest was actually a director for the show, and Ernest appeared in only 5 episodes, I believe.

My favorite line was when Ernest tossed a love note through a window to his sweetie, and Andy asked him how it worked.

"Caught'er right'chere," Ernest said, indicating his forehead.  "She went and married the veterinarian whut sewed her up."

Or at least that's how I remember it.  Haven't watched an episode in years but Ernest was one of TV's most memorable characters, done in only 5 episodes.

In one of the Darling episodes, Ernest T. was played by Bob Denver of Gilligan's Island fame. But in my opinion his performance didn't come close to the job Howard Morris did with that role.

I believe you can still by the Ernest T. Bass Tee Shirts. They have his picture on it that says "It's Me, It's Me, It's Ernest T."

I believe the episode name is "The Trouble With Tribbles".  The Capt. is James T. Kirk.  I believe the # is NCC-1701.  It was the first version used on the original series.  The series with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.
