He created Gumby, dammit!

gumbyclokeyArt Clokey, the creator of Gumby, died last year.

You can read all about it at The Weasel Times & Stoat Intelligencer.

Clokey’s father died in a traffic accident when Clokey was 9 years old. His dad’s somewhat eccentric haircut was the inspiration for the shape of Gumby’s head.
