Google Doodle: Art Clokey's 90th Birthday

Google on Wednesday celebrated the 90th birthday of Gumby creator Art Clokey with an interactive stop motion homepage doodle featuring well-known characters from the Gumby series.
The doodle, which went live on international Web sites yesterday, features a child's block with the letter "G" followed by five balls of colored clay for the remaining letters in the search giant's logo. Click on the balls of clay and Gumby characters will appear—The Blockheads, Prickle and Goo, Gumby himself, and Pokey. They pose for a moment before melting into a pile of clay and rolling back into a ball. See the slideshow below for more.
The doodle was created by Clokey Productions Premavision studios, led by animator Anthony Scott, who started his career in the 1980s on the Gumby series under Clokey. Nicole La Pointe-McKay, a Gumby lead puppet maker, modeled the characters for the doodle.
