In this Dutch language news source, which is not my normal choice of news outlet but which I happened to find when reading about Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), the following amusing addendum has been added to its obituary:

Correction (3 May 2019): In an earlier version of this article Mayhew was referred to a number of times as Mayhem. That has been altered.

He was still doing promos for Carol Burnett and Friends on MeTV a few years ago ... he and Harvey Korman were so great together on that show. Tim considered it his job to crack Harvey up mid-sketch via some outrageous unrehearsed bit of hilarity, and Harvey rarely failed to oblige. Anyone who wants to see them at their best, check out their classic The dentist sketch on uTube.
