Jim Nabors, whose wide-eyed character Gomer Pyle was so popular on The Andy Griffith Show that he got his own spinoff and whose surprisingly sonorous baritone singing voice made him a successful recording artist, has died. He was 87.

“Golll-ly!” was just one of many corn-pone catchphrases that propelled the hit ’60s show’s naive and lovable Mayberry gas-station attendant to popularity (beating out others like “Garsh!” and “Sha-zam!”).
