Art Clokey, the creator of Gumby and his horsey sidekick Pokey, would have been 90 today. Clokey spent more than 50 years perfecting claymation and stop-action film techniques.
Kids just cared about Gumby and Pokey.
Clokey died in January, 2010 at the age of 88. He asked that contributions be made in his name to the National Resources Defense Council. His son, Joseph Clokey, was quoted in the LA Times as saying,"Gumby was green because my dad cared about the environment."
To honor Clokey, we've collected five of the best Gumby films in which Gumby and Pokey get in trouble with food.
