Davey & Goliath animator dies

Art Clokey, 88, animator of the TV series Davey and Goliath, died Jan. 8. In 1959 the former United Lutheran Church in America approached Clokey Productions Inc. to create a TV show similar to its Gumby series.

Clokey's son, Joe, said the series was a huge part of his dad's life. "I always tell people that Davey and Goliath represented the spiritual side of my dad. Davey and Goliath wasn't polarizing — the message always was that 'no matter who you are, God loves you.'"
