George Lindsey (born December 17, 1935) is an American character actor.
Born in Jasper, Alabama, near Birmingham, Lindsey graduated from Florence State College with a Bachelor of Bioscience. Before moving to Los Angeles, he was a public high school teacher in Madison County, Alabama.
In 1964, he got his big break as the slow-witted but kindly hick "Goober Beasley" on the now legendary The Andy Griffith Show. His character was eventually renamed "Goober Pyle" to retain the same name as his cousin Gomer Pyle, another slow-witted yokel played by Jim Nabors (coincidentally another Alabama native). Goober's antics frequently included his exaggerated "Goober Dance" and his comically bad Cary Grant impression ("Judy, Judy, Judy"). After Griffith left his television show, CBS retooled it as Mayberry R.F.D. and Lindsey played the same character, until CBS cancelled R.F.D. in 1971. Later in the 1970s, Lindsey guest starred on "M*A*S*H" as Roy Dupree, a Southern surgeon working at the 8063rd...
