Tim Conway has sadly passed away today at the age of 85. He was a comedic genius and was critical to the success and recognition of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy as a crime-fighting duo and to SpongeBob SquarePants as a whole. A true icon.

Thank you for your memories, Tim. I loved your chemistry between you and Ernie. Rest in peace, my old wise friend. Qwertyxp2000 II (talk|contribs) 07:16, May 15, 2019 (UTC)


A true comedy great, who brought joy to millions - I'm devastated. Tim and Ernest will keep us laughing for years to come. --Spongebob456 talk 20:23, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
It's really sad to see Tim go. Rest In Peace, and go face EVIL with Ernest. - JoJoMKWUTeam (talk) 20:27, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
I really enjoyed all those episodes of SpongeBob that feature Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, and seeing how hilarious both Ernest Borgnine and Tim Conway were as their respective characters really made my day and my childhood. I was saddened to have heard that Ernest Borgnine passed away almost 7 years ago, and I'm just as saddened now because Tim Conway is gone as well. He's a comedic genius, a talented man, and our Barnacle Boy Man, and he will be dearly missed. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy heaven. Rest well, Tim. -BLambClammy
He gave Barnacle Boy a great approach. The character would of never been the same if someone else voiced him. He was an extremely talented voice actor and comedian. May he and Ernest rest in peace. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tanman206 (wallcontribs). Remember to sign your posts with ~~~~

I did not know this happened, but I'm very sorry to hear about this. I will never forget about him. Rest in peace, Tim. At least they might get a new voice actor for Barnacle Boy. 💧 DRIPPIN WET LIKE DONNOLA 💧 Donnola 3 (talk) 20:40, May 14, 2019 (UTC)

I remember him as the voice of Sniffer in the Air Buddies films, except for the first film where he was voiced by Don Knotts. Rest in peace, Sniffer. -- TheSitcomLover (talk) 22:35, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
Barnacle Boy's shift to the dark side has always been one of my all-time favorite episodes. Tim and Ernest gave truly hilarious and memorable performances as their characters. The show will never be the same without them, but they will always be remembered. Flower_cloud_sticker.png Katie (wallcontribs) Flower_cloud_sticker.png
Such a sad predicament that Tim just passed away. And he was the greatest at playing Barnacle Boy for a very long time. Oh, well. So long to you, Tim. Rest your soul and thanks for everything you done for the past. I’ll still continue to watch SpongeBob and support your greatest hero.--Jokeman20 (talk) 09:10, May 15, 2019 (UTC) First Stephen Hillenburg Now Tim Conway??? Why Must The Universe Take Away Such Great People??? RIP Tim :'(
Are you kidding me? I thought that they'd have found a new voice actor for Mermaid Man before long. But now we've lost the voice actor of Barnacle Boy as well. R.I.P. Ernest Borgnine, Stephen Hillenburg, and Tim Conway. Even if Ernest Borgnine and Tim Conway do get replaced, no one will ever do the voicing of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy better than they did. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 23:48, May 14, 2019 (UTC)
This is very sad news. May he always be remembered for voicing Barnacle Boy. -TehLPSRemixer
He was a true hero of my childhood, he was my favorite character just for his voice. I loved when he spoke as he always sounded so depressed in his job, but I’m sure he himself voicing enjoyed it. Thanks for making me laugh many times. 00:27, May 15, 2019 (UTC)
R.I.P, Barnacle Boy

Fight evil in heaven, with Ernest Borgnine! Koopsers Joopsers (MCUE)SpongeBob.... 

Farewell, Barnacle Boy. You've been a real hero in my childhood days. Thanks for all the years of fun and laughter. Now go help Ernest fight against EVIL in heaven. -- DragonSpore18 (talk) 01:03, May 15, 2019 (UTC)
It's been a very sad week for Hollywood greatness. I loved Mr. Conway's work, especially his cameo on Coach. Best wishes to his family and all of his fans. Sponge2001
Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy episodes were some of my favorite episodes of SpongeBob. It's sad to see Tim Conway die. Also SpongeBob Twitter posted the Ugly Barnacle story on the day that he died, which was bad timing on their part.
It's so awful that we lost yet another amazing, talented member of the SpongeBob crew. RIP, Tim Conway. On the bright side, at least Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy are united again up in the Big Shady Shoals in the Sky. Mr Morshu
RIP, Tim Conway. It sucks that were losing the people who created my childhood and who made it brighter. We lost Ernest, Stephen and we now we lost Tim. Signed by JustLeafy.
RIP Tim, have fun fighting evil in Heaven with Ernest BFrit (talk) 03:24, May 15, 2019 (UTC)
I'm so sad to hear this. Thank you for all of the memories, Tim. For all of us, who grew up watching SpongeBob SquarePants, you were a true hero.  Doctor Patrick (MCE) Sterile 04:42, May 15, 2019 (UTC) 
I feel very unfortunate that Tim Conway had passed away today. I had always enjoyed hearing his cynical portrayal of Barnacle Boy, and whenever I hear his voice as Barnacle Boy I would immediately connect myself to this awesomely acted character portrayal. I was hoping he could make a return to act as Barnacle Boy some day, but unfortunately he couldn't since 2016 due to some long-term illness. Tim Conway may no longer be living anymore, but his contributions to this awesome childhood TV show will never die out.
You were a brilliant voice for Barnacle Boy. Millions of fans loved you and your voice for the cynical character. While this is a sad event, the happy side is that now Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy will be reunited at last. The contributions you made will never be forgotten. :) Jack'sAvatarThe Ninja5 Empire (Message Wall) 10:05, May 15, 2019 (UTC)
See you guys in heaven, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy! - BaldiBasicsFan
R.I.P Tim. You will never be forgotten and you will be able to be in heaven with Ernest and Stephen. :)  CoolFriend3976 (MCE)  11:32, May 15, 2019 (UTC) 
I will be seriously down in the dumps if I hear another cast and crew of SpongeBob SquarePants pass. At least SpongeBob SquarePants will always stay successful for over twenty years. My favorite MM&BB episode is the one with the IJLSA (International Justice League of Super Acquaintances). R.I.P. Tim Conway. From Blanding Cassatt (May 15, 2019 at 14:40 EDT)
Rest in peace. Keep fighting evil in Heaven, if there is any. <3 [*]
Rest in peace. Thank you for the memories. — AMK152 (Wall • Contrib) 20:58, May 15, 2019 (UTC)
Rest in peace. It is sad how you have died. If they got a new voice actor for Barnacle Boy, he would never be the same.

Thank you for being here on SpongeBob SquarePants. So we missed us here for the impressions of Barnacle Boy. So you are the legendary voice actor and you will enjoy in the sky with Stephen Hillenburg, Chris Reccardi and Ernest Borgnine. So for that, you are the greatest voice actor from now on. Now I just love Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy episodes from SpongeBob SquarePants since he both was a superhero but now it's time to reunite your heroes. Rest in peace. You will be missed.🌹 From Brandonmcabee (May 16, 2019 at 09:45 EDT)
I used to love all of the Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy episodes. I will never forget how much you have contributed to the show.[[User:LeafyWasNotHere|LeafyWasNotHere]] (May 16, 2019 at 14:45 SST) |} [[Category:Memorials]]
