Today would have been Art Clokey’s 90th birthday, and to celebrate the man who invented Gumby, Google has a special interactive Gumby Logo.
The logo has many of the characters from Gumby, including Pokey, the lovable horse. Clicking on the colorful balls makes the play dough figures come to life, bringing out the essence of Gumby and Art Clokey’s work of “stop motion clay animation.”
Here is a video of the logo in action:
Clokey was born on Oct. 12, 1921, in Detroit, Mich., and died at the age of 88 on Jan. 8, 2010, in Los Osos, Calif.
