Who said it: Barney Fife or a different Don Knotts character?

Who spoke these hilarious lines about giraffes, karate and dear sweet Juaneet?

Don Knotts made Barney Fife one of the funniest characters on television. Of course, great lines provided by the show's writers helped as well. But Don Knotts was also hilarious in his many other roles outside of Mayberry.

Here are ten quotes said by the always amusing Don Knotts. Try to guess if they belong to Barney Fife or a totally different character!

Ghost and Mr chicken... My favorite movie featuring Don Knotts. Also a big influence on Adam Sandler. "Ada boy " was featured in several of his movies

Gee, no lines from THE RELUCTANT ASTRONAUGHT I think the best movie he ever made, also he and Tim Conway made a wonderful film in 1980 the detectives worth watching if you can find it!!

I used to love watching Barney trying to be romantic on the telephone with Juanita, and then realizing that he was overheard by Andy or better yet, Opie.

got 8-10 missed the giraffe question and for some reason, i cant recall that line from barney. what episode was that?

That "atta boy, Luther" and "the electrician must be a democrat" was from his Luther character in "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken". From the big town square picnic scene. So funny!
