Art Clokey is the most suitable recognized for his development of the clay animation 'Gumby". The character, Gumby, was developed in their 1955 student film project while attending USC (University of Southern California). He pitched his film to Sam Engel of 20th Century Fox, and the rest is history. Clokey can be distinguished for creating clay animation commercials for Budweiser and Coca Cola. “Our entry for this award is a thank you to them for their vision and willingness to do things differently.
