Sitcom Carter Country was set in the small Georgia town of Clinton Corners, “just down the road from Plains.” Plains was the home of President Jimmy Carter.
Chief Roy Mobey was the lovable redneck police chief. Sgt. Curtis Baker was his ultra-intelligent, black deputy who had been trained in New York City. Despite certain points of conflict – black vs. white, big-city cop vs. backwoods redneck, etc… the two had great respect for each other.
Teddy Burnside was the weak-willed, chubby Mayor – a mama’s boy who was elected because nobody else wanted the job. He also ran the local bank, Burnside Savings & Loan. He always preferred to pass the buck and his favorite departing words were “Handle it!”
Other cast members included: Cloris Phebus, a man-hungry policewoman; Harley, a young deputy at the station and Jasper, one of the “good ole boys.” In the second season, Tracy Quinn, a cub reporter and Roy’s mother, Julia Mobey, were added to the cast.
Curtis Baker was always trying to make time with the Mayor’s secretary Lucille, and finally, in May 1979, they were married.
