Gumby creator Art Clokey dies:


Gotta love Gumby. I was sad to learn this morning that Gumby's creator, Art Clokey, died in his sleep yesterday. He was 88. Art Clokey also created the very often satirized Christian show Davey and Goliath. I used to watch Davey and Goliath--I loved Goliath!

But truly, Art Clokey, thank you for Gumby and Pokey.

p.s. we should all be lucky enough to die in our sleep.

Very sad indeed. Gumby and Pokey were my friends. Mr. Clokey created his first film "Gumbasia" the year I was born. He had a pretty amazing career. Farewell Mr. Clokey.
