He was born in 1939 and passed away in 2009.
He was in Rowan and martin's Laugh In, and
blues brothers and others..here he is on
Beverly Hillbillies as Quirt Manly

This is incredible. Every morning when I wake there is a song or tune in my head. This morning it was "Is the frog the farmer's friend..." as sung by Henry Gibson on Laugh In. I haven't thought of that silly thing in years!

Thought he was great in "Laugh-In" but for me, his best ever role was as Haven Hamilton in "Nashville". Brilliant take-off of several stars rolled into one!

Well done Henry.

Eddie

"A pome... by Henry Gibson" was always a favourite bit of the Laugh-in for me. RIP.

Another of my favourites gone - I loved that guy in Laugh In. He was a hoot in The Blues Brothers too.

Tyrone was Artie Johnson, Kendall.

The sweet guy who read the poem on Laugh In is someone who I appreciate now but was too nice when I was younger. I was in one of those phases in which politeness was fine, but that vulnerable happiness just seemed weak. The phase lasted about 30 years. These days, I think we need sweet Henry Gibsons and fewer spoilers in the world.

Gibson kept popping up in various roles, completely unexpected (by me, at least). I remember he was in 'Charmed' as a 'sandman' in addition to some of the roles previously mentioned in this thread. He never played a character I didn't like, and I want to believe that innocence of spirit was a fundamental part of him.

Same here with your last sentence, Jeri. I really liked him so much.

I heard that Larry Gelbart who wrote MASH also just passed on. Talk about talent.

There are many stars who do not appear as lasting or prominent, but are actually both, because they appear in many guises under many lights and shine not necessarily brightly, but with color and substance made intense through their brevity. Henry Gibson shone with brief but memorable distinction on many occasions, with humor and succinct eloquence. From his cheerful poesy on laught in to his disgruntled judgeship on Boston Legal, he brought salt and tang to every appearance.

RIP

And now
Tyrone C Horneigh
has gone the way of Henry Gibson, at last,
because the news came out today
that Arte Johnson has died.   

I dearly wish I could have seen the performance,
which review I read later on.
It was an opera company's
Die Fledermaus, here in the US (probably West Coast)
in English translation -- and if you know
what liberties are taken with Die Fledermaus,
you know that ANYTHING is possibly.

Whatever Arte Johnson played (Frosch, maybe?) in the production,
he had spoken dialogue added in,
and the reviewer noted that his character,
along with some other Fledermaus character,
spoke mostly English but threw in German words here and there,

with the two of them stammering and struggling to pronounce

"G - G - G'm - G'm't - G'mttl' -- Gem'm'm'UETlichkeit!"

2019, not 2009. Pick pick.

He was a howl.
