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!

You got 9 out of 10 - Did you know the answers or did these Knotts lines have you tied up? Missed #7 but I am not too upset. More than once he said something very similar as Barney Fife. I know some of his and Andy's dialogues have been used in Matlock, and apparently similar lines in The Ghost and Mr. Chicken too. :) I'll take it.

10/10 I almost forgot that he was in Pleasantville. Good movie and good part for him to play.

Funniest part is the picture before you even take the quiz pretty much answers the questions except 1.
