    Don Knotts Dies at 81

    Actor Don Knotts Dies at 81

    LOS ANGELES Feb 25, 2006 (AP) Don Knotts, the skinny, lovable nerd who kept generations of television audiences laughing as bumbling Deputy Barney Fife on "The Andy Griffith Show," has died. He was 81.

    Knotts died Friday night of pulmonary and respiratory complications at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, said Paul Ward, a spokesman for the cable network TV Land, which airs "The Andy Griffith Show," and another Knotts hit, "Three's Company."

    Oh, my this crushes me. He was so funny. Is Andy still alive?

    It's the end of an era. So much water falling outside lately; some call it rain; I call it God's tears.

    Same age as my father who just died. Greatest Generation.

    I agree. I still watch the re-runs, and laugh out loud!
    My son, who is 5, loves Mr. Limpet! I'm so glad we have the technology to keep seeing great humor!

    Awww, I'm very saddened to hear this news. I'll always remember him best as Mr. Furley on Three's Company, but one of my favorite movies of his is "Private Eyes" - if you haven't seen it, you've got to rent it! He was hysterical, as usual, in that movie and I don't ever hear anyone else mention that movie.

    R.I.P. Don - you will be missed.

    I loved Don Knotts. This is so sad. The first thing I said when I saw this thread was what michele said. Awww. He was so great. I still watch the Andy Griffith show and Threes Company. He was great on both. So funny.
