Green giant

SAN FRANCISCO -- Five decades after Gumby first captured the nation's imagination, the little green guy and his chums are starring in a new art exhibit -- the first in a series of events to mark the 50th anniversary of the television icon's creation and launch his comeback.

''Gumby and Friends: The First 50 Years" attracted fans of all ages at Saturday's opening at the Lynn House Gallery in Antioch, Calif., about 45 miles northeast of San Francisco. Creator Art Clokey, now 83, signed Gumby figurines at the exhibit, which featured photos, toys, and other memorabilia.

The Antioch exhibit is the first event planned this year to commemorate the 50 years since Clokey made a short art film called ''Gumbasia," featuring clay animation set to jazz music, that inspired the beloved television series that debuted a year later, in 1956.

In mid-June, the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City will open a six-month exhibit about Gumby and creator Clokey. Later that month, Clokey's family will celebrate Gumby's 50 years at a birthday extravaganza in San Francisco, said Clokey's son Joe.

The first Gumby video game and a DVD of Gumby shows from the 1980s are scheduled for release this summer.
