Google Celebrates Art Clokey’s Birthday

Animation pioneer Art Clokey was born 90 years ago today. Clokey gave us Gumby and Pokey and later Davey and Golliath. In honor of the occasion, Google has an animated Gumby-themed doodle.
The Gumby Doodle — which starts off with several clay balls and a child’s wooden block — was created by top animator Anthony Scott (“Coraline,” “Corpse Bride”) and puppet/prop maker Nicole LaPointe-McKay for the Clokey Productions Premavision studios.

(Click on each ball or block and a figure springs to life — including the galloping Pokey, Prickle the yellow dinosaur, the Blockheads and Goo, the flying blue goo-ball mermaid. Or click on Gumby himself and he bounces into a ball, a block and then a heart. Because, as the theme song says: “If you’ve got a heart, then Gumby’s a part of you.”)
