Don Knotts' Barney Fife remains one of the great comedic creations of television history. Darren McGavin's Karl Kolchak, Night Stalker is a cult favorite today, but a series I remember vividly from 8th grade. My friends and I watched avidly for the short time it was on. It was camp, but it was really, really great camp. McGavin is also widely-known for his "grumpy dad" role in the movie A Christmas Story.
