Gumby, Pokey & Cutie

Animation legend Art Clokey passed away yesterday. Art was a pioneer in stop-motion clay animation, beginning in 1955. He is best known for his adorable animated television character Gumby. Since the 1950s Gumby and his pony pal Pokey have been a familiar presence on TV and in a 1995 feature film, Gumby: The Movie. Clokey's other famous production is the duo of Davey and Goliath, a series of religious-themed shorts funded by the Lutheran Church. If you've got a heart, then Gumby's a part of you...
