Henry Gibson dies at 73;Orig cast of Laugh-In.
Henry Gibson, a veteran character actor who came to fame in the late 1960s as the flower-holding poet on TV's landmark satirical comedy show "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In," has died. He was 73.
Gibson died late Monday night at his home in Malibu after a short battle with cancer, said his son Jon.
Gibson, who more recently played a recurring role as cantankerous Judge Clark Brown on "Boston Legal," was part of the original ensemble cast of “Laugh In,” which ran on NBC from 1968 to 1973.
I LOVED his poems..He wrote them all himself. A favorite:
Patacake, patacake, baker's man
Bake me a friend.
RIP Little Man!"I am confident that, in the end, common sense and justice will prevail. I'm an optimist, brought up on the belief that if you wait to the end of the story, you get to see the good people live happily ever after."

T'm sorry to hear this. Wow, these past several months we have lost so many entertainers and other public figures. It's been awful.

I remember him most fondly as the voice of Wilbur in the animated movie "Charlotte's Web" (early 70s). I listened to the 8-track tape thousands of times -- it is engrained in my brain. He was the perfect Wilbur.

The last I saw of him was on will and grace. The 2 guys were sitting at a table as he walked by. One of them asked the other if he would like a shrimp he misunderstood and thought he was being called a shrimp and had a reply that just made you double take
gay guy 1 to gay guy 2: Shrimp?
Henry Gibson: ******!
