At the age of 81. A true comic genius, most identified with as the iconic Barney Fife on TV's Andy Griffith Show.

That's just too bad, he's a legend. One of the first comedic influences in my life, I'll always appreciate him.

Rest in Peace.

Very sad. I've enjoyed him as Barney Fife and my 2 year old has enjoyed him as the voice of Wormie from the "Hermie and Friends" DVDs. On a side note, I hate that Paramount never was able to get he and Andy together for an audio commmentary on their season sets. Would have been great. Peace, DM

So long Don - it was a great life, and I hope you're hanging out at the Regal Beagle with Jack and the Ropers.

My earliest recollection of Don Knotts was from the Mr. Limpett movie. Who can ever forget Don and Tim Conway in "The Apple Dumpling Gang"?? It was like the whole thing was one big ad-lib by two of the best.

This one really upsets me, i've loved Don's work my whole life and he made me laugh so often and so hard that it drew tears.

My personal favorite film of his is The Ghost and Mr. Chicken, but I love all of his stuff, even his animated guest appearance on Scooby Doo.

Favorite character is without a doubt Ralph Ferley, I used to howl with laughter at him in Three's Company. As Ralph, he was a smooth old dude who dressed sharp, had a way with the ladies (or so he thought LOL) and was just a walking and talking exposed nerve who could go bug-eyed at any moment LOL.

Goodbye, Don Knotts, may you rest in peace. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Don't forget The Shakiest Gun in the West. It was sidesplitting funny. They can't make them like that anymore.
