(1957)***:a fascinating claymation series,(1988)***:a still interesting but weaker plot series, 29 April 1999
Author: PJS-5 from New Hampshire

(1957),Sure you see Cheap Live-action films as potential MST3K films(I'm aware that a certain gumby short "Robot Rumpus" was the MST3K short for episode "The Screaming Skull")but you gotta admit seeing basic claymation is a lot more fascinating than cheap live action(I'm also aware of my wording),& the plots are fascinating so the characters (I even thought the obvious live-action scenes look kinda cool) but the dialogue & sometimes the voice acting is kinda lame. (1988)so they placed in weaker plots (the jousting with the dark knight for ex. & the fact Gumby & his friend are in a band,& Gumby's barnyard friends look a bit more basic animatronic(the chicken,Telley & yes a woolly mammoth),but it still has the highly intriguing characters this time smoother claymation & some of the plots were still interesting. Even though I give this the same rating as the original I personally thought the original was better.
