Trivia

The shape of Gumby's head was inspired by an old family photo of Art Clokey's father, Charles Farrington, at age 18, which showed a rather large cowlick on one side. See more »

Incredibly unique!
10 August 1999 | by (Right behind you!) – See all my reviews

Gumby was, and still is, a very innovative show. I usually watch it around 12:30 AM on Cartoon Network because it is very hard to find on any other station, morning or night. Gumby was more of an experiment than anything else, and a somewhat successful one, take for example the DANNY! talk show, one season. The lesson learned, Jonathan Taylor Thomas will be gone, eventually, FOREVER!!. But I lose my place. Gumby stretched the limits of what a flat piece of green clay can do. Gumby was a sort of predecessor to all kiddie cartoons (this was 1957). Gumby had fictional violence which you just get up and shrug off an assault by a robot or steamroller crush and then whale the tar out of the antagonist. The Gumby Show also had a cute little band, not much, but surpassing the Archie, Josie & The Pussycat and Jabberjaw cartoons (where do they get off, anyway?). Gumby does have his flaws, mainly the dialogue sounds like a bunch of words taped together and then sent through a tin can and being 100% reliant on claymation. But these problems can detract or enhance the Gumby experience, it depends on the viewer. END
