I just posted yesterday about how much I love stop motion animation. Sadly, I neglected to mention the creator of “Gumby” and “Davey and Goliath”. It was my last chance to give him him roses while alive and I missed it.
Art Clokey has died.
Let’s honor his memory by singing the Gumby song:
And now, let’s watch an episode of Davey and Goliath:
(Trivia tidbit: I had been a grownup for many years before I found out that “the Davey and Goliath song” was actually “A Mighty Fortress is our God.)
Thank you, Mr. Clokey, for hours upon hours of enjoyment. Rest in peace.
