Gumby Voice Actor Dick Beals Dead at 85

Posted: June 2nd, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Gumby Voice Actor Dick Beals Dead at 85Submit Comment
Gumby creator Art Clokey died at the age of 88 about two years ago, and now comes word that Dick Beals, who voiced the animated character, has passed away as well. He was 85 years old.

Beals was the original voice of the title character on "The Gumby Show" in the late 1950s, as well as the voice of Davey in "Davey and Goliath." He also was the unseen pitchman in more than 3,000 commercials for such products as Oscar Mayer and Campbell's Soup.

He often got jobs that called for him to sound like a child because he suffered from a glandular condition. His voice hadn't changed since elementary school and neither did his body. Beals was 4 feet 6 inches tall and weighed less than 70 pounds.
