Ron Howard once made a guest appearance on a sitcom that was built around a TV show, but might possibly have been a radio station. The interviewer seemed to feel he was interviewing Opie, not Ron Howard, and asked about Aunt Bee, Andy, etc. They even asked him to sing the song 'Wells Fargo Wagon' with his lisp. He gave up and actually sang the song before the show ended. I can't remember the name of the show, but hope to find it and maybe see that episode again. Can anyone remember this show?

"Years ago on Saturday Night Live I saw a funny skit with Ron Howard and Eddie Murphy. Eddie Murphy played a television journalist and Ron Howard played himself. The premise of the skit was that Eddie would interview this famous filmmaker about the last few movies he had directed, but Eddie kept referring to Ron Howard as Opie Cunningham. All Eddie wanted to talk about was how Ron Howard had played Opie on the Andy Griffith Show and had been the star of the sitcom Happy Days."
