PLAYERS: Eddie Murphy
Today, Google’s latest Doodle pays tribute to the late Arthur “Art” Clokey, a pioneer of stop motion clay animation, who was born on October 12, 1921. Clokey’s best-known animated characters were Gumby and his horse Pokey which were popular during the fifties and sixties. Gumby experienced a comeback in the 80ies after Eddie Murphy parodied the character on Saturday Night Live, and a full feature animated movie called Gumby: The Movie was released in 1995. Stop motion clay animation has remained a popular technique to this day. It’s been used in many commercials, music videos, shorts and movies, including Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run. The Gumby Google Doodle is animated and interactive, so make sure you click on all the “letters” to see the entire animation.
