Comedian Tim Conway, who starred on The Carol Burnett Show and McHale's Navy and in a slew of family-friendly films, passed away in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The cause of death was water on the brain, Variety reports. Conway won six Emmys over the course of his long career, including one for a memorable 2008 guest appearance on 30 Rock. In addition to his side-splitting exploits as part of Burnett's troupe, he lent his voice to animated shows like SpongeBob SquarePants and Scooby Doo, and released a series of comedic how-to videos as a diminutive Scandinavian character named Dorf.
