    Aww, that's too bad. Tim Conway was funny on McHale's Navy, but he was hysterical on The Carol Burnett Show. What made the show so funny was it was performed live, and Tim Conway did everything to crack the others up. Poor Harvey Korman got the brunt of Tim's antics. And the studio audience ate it up. They didn't laugh at him, they HOWLED at him.
    Watch "The Dentist Sketch" or The Hitler Sketch" and you'll wet your pants. Like I did.
    Thank you Tim, for tears of laughter.

    Shame. I always loved his voice over work as Barnacle Boy in Spongebob.

    I guess Barnacle Boy will now be joining Mermaid Man up in Heaven...

    I was very sad to hear about this, I remember Conway from an infamous video series where he played a character called Dwarf

    I remember his guest appearance on The New Scooby-Doo Movies back in the '70s, as well as his stuff on Carol Burnett. RIP.

    Another great gone. Very sad to hear he had dementia. I bet he was as sweet as ever to the end, though.
