The passing of an icon: Don Knotts gives up the ‘Ghost’ at 81

"The Incredible Mr. Limpet"

"The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" star left audiences howling with delight.

Don Knotts, the saucer-eyed, scarecrow-thin comic actor best known for his roles as the high-strung small-town deputy Barney Fife on the 1960s CBS series "The Andy Griffith Show" and the leisure-suit-clad landlord Ralph Furley on ABC's '70s sitcom "Three's Company," has died. He was 81.

Don was one of my favorite comedians of all time. I loved every movie he ever starred in.  The Incredible Mr. Limpet" was one of his funniest movies in my opinion. RIP Don Knotts…you’ll be missed.
