Art Clokey's 90th Birth Anniversary
Google is celebrating Art Clokey's 90th birthday anniversary with Google-coloured clay balls which spring to life when you click on them. Arthur Clokey (October 12, 1921 - January 8, 2010) was a pioneer in the popularization of stop motion clay animation, beginning in 1955 with a film experiment called Gumbasia.
From the Gumbasia project, Art Clokey and his wife Ruth invented Gumby.
