Art Clokey, creator of both Gumby and Davey & Goliath, passed away in his sleep yesterday at the age of 88. For some reason, whenever I recall getting up early to watch re-runs of Davey & Goliath as a kid in the 70's, it was always dark and snowing outside. I don't know why, but there was something really cozy about watching that show, which is strange because it was seldom comforting. Maybe it's just me. At any rate, may Art rest in eternal peace, as I'm sure he had hoped he would.
