    Of course many know Tim for his fantastic work on Carol Burnett and McHales Navy but to me he will always be Barnacle B-Man.

    One of the greats! He never failed to make me laugh when I was little. Rediscovering the Carol Burnet show with my own kids they thought he was just as funny as I did and still do. RIP Tim

    One the funniest outtakes!

    I've always felt these two outtakes were the funniest things they ever did on the show.
    Conway was brilliant. Dick Van Dyke was losing it. Of course Vicki Lawrence got the last laugh ("I'll go if the little a**hole is done"...). "Snork"

    Yup, the Siamese elephant bit is one of my all time favorites.

    Also liked the one where Tim is looking up Harvey's nose, and asks, "is that loaded?"

    Very sad news. One of my favorite guys. I just watched McHale's Navy the other day. Still so funny. RIP, Tim.

    Always liked the one from the Carol Burnett show where Tim Conway flies no frills. Rest in peace.

    Sad day. You would not believe how much I watch the McHales Navy shows just to watch him. RIP.

    Tim starred on a Doris Day special called "Doris Day Today". A great opportunity to see the two dearly missed stars together...

    RIP Tim Conway! He truly was the M.V.P. on Carol Burnett show, so many hilarious skits and work on TV, film, and voice-over work still in last decade.

    By the way, for those of you who have no clue who Ernie Anderson is, you may remember him from his years in L.A. as THE voice of ABC TV promos ...

    Interesting timing for me - I do video projection for live events and I am at CBS Television City for 3 days (today being the 2nd - tomorrow is the CBS Upfront broadcast from NY Carnegie Hall being sent to L.A.). We are in Studio 33 - the home of The Carol Burnett Show. I always thought he was great.

    A funny, funny man. His work brought me so much joy and laughter over the years I owe him a debt of gratitude. Thanks Mr. Conway.

    RIP. I was a fan of both Tim Conway and Don Knotts when I was a kid.
  17. Tim Conway, Harvey Korman, Carol Burnett all pure genius.

    He was just incredibly funny. RIP.

    So the source of Tim Conway's Mr. Tudball accent came from his Romanian mother. A comic genius especially for someone without any formal training.

    I never realized he was that old since he always came across animated and youthful in what I thought were recent interviews. Man! I'm going to miss that guy. RIP.

    I was a Carol Burnett lover, and Tim Conway was the icing on the cake. He and Harvey Korman were fantastic.

    Requiescat in Pacem, Mr. Conway! You were a comedy genius@!

    I made a comment in the tribute thread in the regular forum about this sketch, but somehow it didn't make it in before it was closed.

    So I'll repeat it here.

    I love to laugh, and many things have made me laugh over the years. But there have been only a limited number of bits I've seen that have literally ā€” and I mean literally ā€” put me on the floor, doubled over in helpless, uncontrollable laughter.

    This is one of them, and I saw it the very night it was performed on The Carol Burnett Show for the first time.

    R.I.P. Tim. And when you see him, please tell Ernie hello from me.

    He was truly one of the very best at what he did. His style of humor is sadly missing from today's cultural landscape. May he rest in well deserved peace,

    Those of us who are from northeastern Ohio remember Ernie as Ghoulardi, the greatest late-night horror movie host in the entire history of the genre.

    I always say that an entire generation from our area grew up slightly skewed (in a very good way!) from watching his show.
