'Gumbasia': Gumby Creator Art Clokey's Trippy Student Film (VIDEO)

In honor of Art Clokey's 90th birthday (which Google is celebrating with a Gumby logo), here's "Gumbasia," a trippy student film Clokey made at USC in 1953 that explored claymation and prefigured Clokey's bendy green man. "Gumby," the show, lasted 35 years and comprised 233 episodes, all of which made this scene and this hilarious robbery possible. Thanks Art Clokey!
