LOS ANGELES–Tim Conway, the Emmy-winning comedian and actor who memorably starred in “McHale’s Navy” in the 1960s and “The Carol Burnett Show” in the ’70s, died May 14 at a hospital here. He was 85.

MSTies may recall that Tom Servo impersonated him in a host segment in episode 305- STRANDED IN SPACE.

Variety has the story.

    Funny guy…started in a comedy team with Ernie “Ghoulardi” Anderson; My Favorite story was during the filming of one of Tim’s many short-lived sitcoms…a network exec appeared unannounced onto the set during a scene, looked around and then muttered “Don’t do this anymore” and then walked out..R.I.P.

    One of Conway’s funniest sketches, though you have to pity poor Lyle Waggoner.

    I saw “Lyle Waggoner”, and thought, dang, you beat me to it. :)

    As part of that generation who grew up with 80’s movies and 80’s HBO, that left me trying to find suitable quotable clips from “The Private Eyes”:

    Believe you’re thinking of “Godzilla vs. Megalon”, and the uncannily Dorf-ish ruler of Seatopia?

    That’s right! I had some wires crossed.

    Yep…. great family memories of watching Mr. Conway on The Carol Burnett Show, joining in the uncontrollable laughter he caused with the cast. He was truly a very funny man.

    What a sad week this has been, losing a couple of the greats. Having just got the word of Grumpy Cat’s recent demise, I sure hope that counts as our third.

    Tim Conway and Cher appeared in a Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In sketch where he delivered some very naughty lines. Luckily for us, the Censors were pretty naive.
