Clancy the Great Roller Skating Monkey by Ideal Toys 1962 Ideal Toys introduced Clancy in 1962 and sales took off! Even grouchy old coots would crack a smile watching Clancy in action!!! Toss a coin in Clancy's hat and he'll skate towards you, or you could hold his hand and he'd skate as you walked along. Another GREAT Ideal toy. Like the jingle says, "It's a Wonderful Toy, It's IDEAL!"

Gil Clancy 1922-2011 Sports fans lost a familiar voice and friend on March 31, 2011 when Hall-of-Fame boxing figure Gil Clancy died. As manager and trainer of Emile Griffith, he was best known for his significant contributions to the former world welterweight and middleweight champ's career. Born Gilbert Thomas Clancy, he served with the US Army during World War II, and fought as an amateur while stationed in Mississippi. After the war, he attended New York University from where he attained his bachelor's and master's degrees in Education. While teaching in New York City, he began training boxers and shaped Emile Griffith from a Golden Gloves champion into a professional world champion in two different weight classes. Clancy was acknowledged as one of the most respected trainers of his time, as he worked with Jerry Quarry, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Muhammad Ali and Oscar De La Hoya, among many others. He was named Boxing Writers Association of America Manager of the Year twice (1967 and 1973). During the 1980s, he worked as a boxing commentator with CBS Sports and HBO; he was recipient of the Sam Taub Award in 1983. Clancy was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1993.
