A legend has died

Thanks to MovieBob and a quick google search, I’ve come to find that TV animation pioneer Art Clokey has died. You may not recognize him by name alone, but nearly everyone has seen his work. Remember Gumby or Davey & Goliath? Those were both him. As an animation fan, his death saddens me, just as Joseph Barbera’s (one of the three founders of Hanna-Barbera cartoons) death did. Still, the man lived a full life and contributed greatly to claymation and American icons. He will be remembered.
