I thought the same thing, that Jim Nabors was already dead.

The difference with me is that I just admit that I was wrong, it's the more plausible explanation compared to the Sliders hypothesis that you're travelling between many different universes or the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Remember Me" hypothesis that there's nothing wrong with you, there's something wrong with the universe.

The Internet has made people forget what it's like to be wrong, because they can always find someone to corroborate their opinions. So if you think "The Fall Guy" was a documentary, Google enough and you'll find someone who can back that up with FACTS.

(And indeed, "The Fall Guy" WAS a documentary. We know this because there is an episode in which Colt Seavers sings the theme song for the show. How could that happen unless Colt Seavers were a real person? FACTS FOR THE WIN.)

He got married in 2013, maybe that's what you were thinking of. Married, dead, same thing pretty much.

No, I think I probably conflated it with the death of another sitcom actor from the same general era, possibly even someone else from the Andy Griffith Show, which had a large supporting cast.

It may even be George Lindsey, the actor for Goober Pyle, a character which started out as Goober Beasley but who was later retconned into being Gomer Pyle's cousin. He died in 2012, which seems to be about the right time frame for what I vaguely remember, and I can easily imagine people hearing about the actor for one of the G. Pyle characters dying and confusing it with the actor for the other character.

I haven't actually watched much of any of the Andy Griffith Show anyway, it's one of those shows I know more about from references in pop culture than watching it directly.

I think you nailed it right there. I had no idea there were two G Pyle characters and might have been mildly confused by this. And as you know, mild confusion is a symptom of quantum weirdness. At least, I get mildly confused by physics text books.

It's kinda like with the phenomena-namer for the "Mandela Effect", people confuse Nelson Mandela, who didn't die in jail, with Stephen Biko, who did die in jail. Okay, to be precise, Biko actually died in a holding cell in a hospital after being beaten by police during interrogation at a police station, but it's close enough to "died in jail" that I can easily imagine it's the anti-apartheid activist death that people conflate with Nelson Mandela.
