Gumby creator Art Clokey dead at 88.

Art ClokeyHe was once a little green slab of clay's creator.  Art Clokey has died at age 88 after a series of bladder infections.  He created the characters Gumby and Pokey as part of a student project called "Gumbasia"  at the University of Southern California in the 1950s, and they became famous as regular segments in "The Howdy Doody Show".  Later, the Lutheran Church hired him to create the stop-motion animation series "Davey and Goliath".
