Mount Airy, NC -- Goober Pyle was known around the fictional town of Mayberry for his trademark beanie, but it's his more formal attire that's now on display in the North Carolina town that inspired "The Andy Griffith Show."

Multiple media outlets reported that George Lindsey, who played an auto mechanic, donated a suit worn by Goober on the show to the Andy Griffith Museum in Mount Airy on Friday.

Lindsey, who lives in Nashville, Tennessee, says he plans to donate more items from the show at next month's Mayberry Days festival.

Organizers predict a huge turnout this year, as October marks the 50th anniversary of the show's premiere.

The show's idyllic setting was inspired by Griffith's hometown of Mount Airy.
