Don Knotts Facts
Was a Ventriloquist in his early years from out of High School and his doll was named, Danny.

Don was conceived after his parents had already raised other sons. His father had a nervous breakdown at the prospect of raising another child from birth.

He was the youngest of four brothers. His family life was troubled; Knotts' father twice threatened his mother with a knife and later spent time in mental hospitals, while older brother Earl - nicknamed "Shadow" because of his thinness - died of asthma in 1942 when Knotts was still a teenager.
