Bendable AND Poseable

Gumby animator Art Clokey dies at 88

LOS OSOS, California (AP) — Animator Art Clokey, whose bendable creation Gumby became a pop culture phenomenon through decades of toys, revivals and satires, died Friday. He was 88.

The rest is here.

Gumby and Pokey were 'fun toys' that sparked a child's imagination. Their 'clay-mation' adventures were truly entertaining. Thank you, Mr. Clokey, for your creativity with a couple lumps of clay.
