Gumby Play Set. Ramsey, New York: Colorforms, 1988.

One of the first artists to use clay in animations, Art Clokey conceived Pokey and Gumby as imaginary characters in stories he told his children at bedtime. Although Gumby and Pokey first aired in 1956, they are still enduring family entertainment figures today, providing lessons for children with their supportive characters.
