Henry Gibson (1935-2009)
Henry is one of those actors that just makes me happy every time I see him. He is so adorable -- his smile, his ears, the crinkle between his eyebrows. His role in The Burbs as Dr. Klopek seemed so quintessential, my absolute favorite. I saw him again this morning while watching the TV series Eerie, Indiana (which is awesome for about five thousand different reason). Actually the show and Henry share the same kind of light, happy spookiness I love. Makes me think of monster kids, Creepshow, horror movie model kits, all that jazz.
