Gumby!!
15 November 2016 | by strong-122-478885See all my reviews

(*Lyrics excerpt from the "Gumby" theme song*) - "He was once a little, green slab of clay."

(*Gumby trivia*) - Gumby's last name is Gumba (Yep. That makes him Gumby Gumba) and he lives in a place called Gumbopolis, USA.

If you ask me - I'd say that "The Gumby Show" (in its toyland-type setting) was the original "Toy Story" if there ever was one.

Created by American animator, Art Clokey - "The Gumby Show" was first aired on TV in 1957. The Plasticine characters featured in the show were all brought to life through the technique known as "stop-motion animation" which required hours of preparation and set-up work.

I found this show to be quite an imaginative one whose action sequences were all fairly tame and low-keyed when compared to the ultra-violence that prevailed in Warner Bros. "Looney Tunes".

Though 60 years old now - I believe that "The Gumby Show" still remains an entertaining program that can certainly be enjoyed today by both the young and the young-at-heart, alike.

*Note* - In 2010, Art Clokey (who was originally from Detroit, Michigan) died at the age of 88.
