Elusive Andy Griffith Show Character - Mr. Schwump The Andy Griffith Show has some of the most fanatically devoted watchers of any sitcom in history. Despite their zeal, no one has been able to positively identify the actor who played 'Mr. Schwump' in at least 26 episodes from 1964 through 1968. Actually, fans of the show can't even agree on the character's name. The late Everett Greenbaum, who wrote many of the scripts, claimed the character was actually written as 'Mr. Schwamp,' but it seemed to be pronounced as 'Schwump' whenever he was acknowledged. Whatever the case, Mr. Schwump was the classic background character: He can be seen in crowd shots at Mayberry's social gatherings, at public meetings, at private parties, at church services, sitting on a public bench, as a customer in stores, etc. He never once uttered a single line in any episode nor was he given any screen credit. He is only noteworthy at all because in several episodes Andy Taylor passes by him and says, "Hello, Mr. Schwump." It is generally acknowledged that he appears to be about 60 years old and wears a hairpiece. Efforts by zealous fans to find out who the actor was have proven fruitless. On April 1, 2012 an elaborate post was made on the Facebook page of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club declaring that researchers had determined Mr. Schwump was an actor named Patch S. Wimmers originally from Camp Threw, MS. Although it was supposed to be an obvious April Fools Day prank, many die-hard fans did not realize the information was bogus and still accept the Patch S. Wimmers story as gospel. None of the surviving cast members ever remembers learning Mr. Schwump's real name. One theory claims the mysterious actor was a friend of Andy Griffith and his occasional appearances in the show were an inside joke. Mr. Schwump's true identity remains unknown.

Future King Plays Wimbledon Doubles - 1926 In 1926, Sir Louis Greig won the Royal Air Force's tennis championship. In those days of strict amateurism at the top levels of tennis, Greig's victory earned him the right to play in the gentlemen's singles at Wimbledon. He also opted to enter the gentlemen's doubles tournament. Greig chose as his partner a noteworthy someone whom he had mentored and often advised--the Duke of York, the man who would ascend to the British throne in December 1936. Greig and his royal partner faced two other Brits, Arthur Gore and Herbert Roper Barrett, in the first round. Gore and Barrett had little trouble dispatching the future King George VI and Greig 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. Apparently the Duke of York was quite a good sport about being thrashed so handily. Greig fared far better in the gentlemen's singles, advancing to the fourth round. Although there is a frequent royal presence at Wimbledon, the Duke of York remains the only royal to actually have competed at the world's most prestigious tennis tournament.
