Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.

Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. aired on CBS from 1964 to 1969.
The series was a spinoff of The Andy Griffith Show and featured Jim Nabors reprising his role as the bumbling, but lovable, Gomer Pyle, who had left the town of Mayberry and joined the U.S. Marine Corps. The series mostly revolved around Pyle's misadventures in the Marines, usually ending with his good-naturedness winning over adversity, especially his hard-nosed Drill Instructor, Gunnery Sergeant Vince Carter.

Other characters included Gilbert "Duke" Slater (Gomer's best friend), Sergeant Hacker, Bunny Wilson (Carter's girlfriend) and Lu Ann Poovie (Gomer's girlfriend).
