    RIP, Tim. His routines with Harvey Korman on the Carol Burnett show were some of the funniest skits ever made.

    Another one of the GREATS is gone. What a shame! In don't watch much modern comedy. It seems that four letter words must be in every sentence. Rest in Peace Tim. Bill

    I agree.
    Good humor is the past.
    Give me Jack Benny, and I'm happy as a clam.

    Hi Jim and all. I loved his skits on the Carol Burnett show, and the movie The Apple Dumpling Gang where he teamed up with Don Knotts. What a pair. RIP Tim and your great humor will be sorely missed by all.
