Jack Burns, 'The Muppet Movie' and 'Muppet Show' Writer, Dies at 86.

Burns gained further airtime when Andy Griffith hired him to fill in for the departing Don Knotts on The Andy Griffith Show as a new character, Deputy Sheriff Warren Ferguson. Unfortunately, his deputy was an unpopular character and he only lasted 11 episodes. Nevertheless, Burns ended up in roles on The Partridge Family, Happy Days and Getting Together after his stint on Andy Griffith. He additionally voiced Ralph on the groundbreaking primetime cartoon Wait 'Til Your Father Gets Home, which preceded today's popular animated shows for adults.

RIP, Jack. I always felt a little sorry for all the grief Jack took from Andy Griffith Show fans. It was really the producers' fault. They'd said that they weren't going to try to replace Don Knotts, because he was irreplaceable. Then they turned around and created a character who was a weak imitation of Barney Fife, and hired Jack to play him.

I would compare that to someone trying to replace Babe Ruth...
