How Did Helen Crump End up in Mayberry?
Helen doesn't seem to be a very popular character around here, so no mean answers, okay? lol
I was wondering how did Helen Crump end up in Mayberry? I sort of recall that she was from Kansas. So how does a woman from Kansas decide to move a thousand miles away to a tiny town in North Carolina? How did she even hear about it?
People move for their jobs of course. If you want to be in the music business or entertainment, you generally have to go to New York or L.A. to make it big. That's just one example.
Companies transfer employees to different cities all the time too.
But what would prompt an elementary school teacher to move that far to teach in a little town which was probably not even well known outside of the county, let alone the state? I'm sure there were plenty of schools in Kansas! if Helen just preferred small town life, there are small towns in Kansas.
Was it ever addressed in any episode why Helen chose to move there? I know I've seen all the TAGS episodes. But I can't remember if there was a specific reason why Helen ended up in Mayberry. Did she just start driving and when she ran out of gas, that's where she stayed? ha
