Trivia

Production on the film was completed in 1992, four years after production began, but Premavision was unable to find a distributor until 1995, when they found a small film studio called Arrow Releasing. Also, after the film's completion, most of the animators who worked on the film went to work on Henry Selick's The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). See more »

Goofs

During "Take Me Away", when Gumby and Tara are dancing as blockheads follow them through a tunnel filled with Pokeys, you can clearly see a mirror in the background used to create the illusion. A camera can be seen on the right in a few frames as well. See more »

Hot 90's Rock Soundtrack??!!!
23 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

The music.

Did anyone notice the music? Like ZZTop amped-up with Eddie Van Halen and a little Randy Rhodes thrown in for good measure? The song when Gumby's band is playing al fresco has absolutely killer guitar, and I'm trying to track down the guitarist now. Would anyone have or info. or help me in my quest? I'm a guitarist myself and I'll be transcribing all the electric guitar from this movie.

Haven't the faintest what the plot is about, but my 3-year old son enjoyed it, and we love G+P anyway. I have ancient memories of it so I bought a couple DVDs for me and my son; we enjoy it.

But by God who is playing guitar? Also the song "Take Me Away" is in a classic power-rock romantic-anthem mode, and sung by the perfect female voice. The bridge is boring but everything else in the song is top-notch.

I found the producer's name, David Ozzie Ahlers, and he's associated with Jerry Garcia, but that's as far as I could get. I'm lousy at this kind of research. Could anyone help? And yes, I'm going to buy the DVD!
