TV Land Celebrates the Life of Film and TV Icon Don Knotts

NEW YORK, Feb. 27 -- TV Land will honor the life and work of veteran actor Don Knotts, who passed away on Friday, February 24, with two separate on-air tributes. The network will showcase a six episode presentation of Knotts' memorable work on The Andy Griffith Show as the lovable, bumbling small town deputy, Barney Fife on Tuesday, February 28 from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET/PT. Additionally, beginning Saturday March 4 at 6 a.m. ET/PT, TV Land will air a 48-hour marathon of both The Andy Griffith Show and Three's Company, the latter of which he played the eccentric landlord Mr. Furley.

"Don Knotts was a superb talent and great friend to the entire staff at TV Land and we will all miss him tremendously," explains Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land and Nick at Nite. "We are so honored to have known him and enjoy his amazing contributions to the entertainment world, and we will remember him fondly forever."

The Andy Griffith Show episodes in TV Land's tribute to Don Knotts on Tuesday, February 28 will include:

8 p.m. The Pickle Story

Rather than eat Aunt Bee's indigestible home-made pickles, Andy and Barney secretly substitute store-bought pickles in her preserving jars.

8:30 p.m. Barney and the Choir

Andy's diplomacy and modern engineering techniques are required to upgrade the music of the Mayberry choir.

9 p.m. Barney and the Governor

Barney hangs a parking ticket on the Governor's car, and refuses to tear it up.

9:30 p.m. Barney's First Car

Jim Nabors appears as Gomer Pyle as Barney invests his life's savings in a used car.

10 p.m. The Haunted House

Andy, Barney and Gomer are a trio of laughs as they tread the boards of a "haunted house."

10:30 p.m. The Shoplifters

Barney disguises himself as a dummy in an attempt to solve a series of thefts in a Mayberry department store.

TV Land's 48-hour marathon tribute which includes episodes from The Andy Griffith Show and Three's Company is as follows:
