Passing of Gumby Creator
How I LOVE Gumby! Art Clokey, his creator, died on January 8, peacefully in his sleep.
Gumby and Pokey have brought countless hours of fun to me and my grandchildren. These wonderful clay animations were quite astounding when first introduced in the
50's and are a breath of fresh air among the various bits we see made for kids today.
They encouraged values of friendship, honesty, helpfulness and so much more.
Long Live GUMBY!
