Gibson played several recurring characters in the ensemble comedy show, but his main persona was that of a shy yet determined poet who would
very briefly grab the spotlight to deliver a piece of rhymed whimsy. He was
the show's gentlest clown who embodied both America's rediscovered spirit of nonconformity and the soul of its secret poets. Several YouTube
tributes to Gibson have appeared since his death, and the brief, wordless montage seen here is one of the most heartfelt salutes to this unique
comedian and actor.
