Thread: Don Knotts dead

  1. #1

    Don Knotts dead

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060225/...tv/obit_knotts

    He was 81, I actually thought he was even older. One of the most well-recognized character actors of the last 50 years, Knotts brought humanity to his doofy sidekick deputy Barney Fife on "The Andy Griffith Show", as well 5 years as Mr Furley on "Three's Company", and starred as the sometimes-animated Incredible Mister Limpet - whose avatar Chux has been rockin' the last few days.

    Anyway, it's a sad loss, Don Knotts did a lot of fun cameos and his death is a sad loss.

    Wow. Knotts was one of those actors who was so iconic that you can't help but feel like you've been run over by a Mack truck carrying anvils when you hear that he's no longer with us.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Yeah, I bet now you feel bad for saying you hated it, right?

    It's okay. KH hates The Andy Griffith Show. Personally, I can't imagine how anyone can hate anything Don Knotts was in. Except maybe Three's Company.

    He was a great actor....I always loved him on Three's Company and that wide-eyed look on his face....My mom always watches Andy G at night too...

    "Das Limpet!" How can anyone hate that movie?

    No big shock that he's passed, but it's still a bummer. Growing up, I'd probably watched all of his movies a hundred times during those weekend matinee marathons. It was nice seeing him around every now and then... he'll be missed.

    Kind of odd to lose Darren McGavin, Don Knotts and Al Lewis all in the same month. We got a Kolchak Triangle on our hands.
