http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/11/arts/television/11clokey.htmlArt Clokey, the animator who half a century ago created Gumby, that most pliant of pop-cultural figures, died on Friday at his home in Los Osos, Calif. He was 88...
Clokey also produced “Davey and Goliath,” the adventures of a clay boy and his dog, broadcast in the 1960s and ’70s.
Who had a rubber Gumby and Pokey set?
I remember getting up early Sunday mornings and watching Davey and Goliath. I never really liked the show [it was religion-based and I already went to church six days a week!] but watching it was about all that I could do that early in the morning without making noise. Gumby was cool but I have no idea why.
