Gottfried noticed his change, and the producers saw Gottfried’s talent and decided to include him in the sixth season. The persona of Gottfried in the sketches of SNL was incredibly different from what he was characterized later. He never spoke but instead resided to his trademark screeches and obnoxious voices. During his twelve-episode sketches, he acquired incredibly low airtime. He recalled a point in an interview where he performed as a literal corpse in a drawing regarding sports. He still had a reoccurring character named Leo Waxman.  He has made two other impressions of David Stockman and Roman Polanski, a very controversial movie director.
