i always dug Gumby.

My mom worked for the lady in charge of science studies at the board of ed ages ago and she told my mom she created Gumby. i always knew she was full of crap. at least ole Art lived a long life.

I read about Clokey this morning. I found it interesting that Clokey actually liked Eddie Murphy's vulgar take on Gumby on Saturday Night Live back in the 80's. The man was a genius.
