I prefer the series 'Super Black Hoodlum Gay Lesbian Turtles'

They were called the teenage mutant ninja turtles when I was little.

Amazing what they will do nowadays to teach kids about tolerance. ;)

Could you possibly ask him to hang on until next year. Then keep us posted?

If you're telling the truth, I'll admit that's good to hear... I've always been a fan. Send him my well wishes this year!

I loved watching the sex scenes between Knots and Griffith, especially when they include the town barber.

The Andy Griffith Show had a lot of very old stars and hasn't seen many of them die yet. Based simply on gut feeling I think one of them will die sometime this year. They've made my top 100 of old TV stars on their way out.

YOU LIED TO ME! YOU GAVE ME FALSE HOPES!

Don Knotts was a brilliant comedian, this is truly sad news.

Oh, will I? :P I've never seen it!! However, I have heard of him vaguely. Wrong thread again, anyway, Iain.

Sad to hear about McGavin though. Always good entertainment ;)

I guess that someone did not look at the threads before posting to the Near Misses thread. It is already mentioned right here.

Didn't Jim Nabors have a liver transplant like 10 years ago or something? Seems like I remember something about that. When is he gonna kick the bucket? Also, Don Knotts, Andy, they are really getting old, so here is a vote for one of them in 2005.

Thelma Lou is old and fat and that is that!

Who will be the next Mayberryite to pass on?


Knotts drops dead

He's down, folks.

I think a thread with the subtitle Don Knotts has died is quite enough notice for most people. Besides, most of us have Wiki Recent Deaths or Google News Search or something else to alert us, so it's not like you were bringing us a scoop. :P

Can we merge this with "Andy Griffith and Don Knotts" or vice-versa? I think it makes sense...

Also, apparentely Andy Griffith himself was healthy enough to be visiting Mr. Knotts in the hosptial on a regular basis, so it seems unlikely that he'll be dropping soon.
