    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, patacake, baker's man
    Bake me a friend.

    RIP Little Man!

    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.

    RIP Henry

    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: ******!
