Gumby World


It’s easy to knock Gumby

He’s been mocked by Saturday Night Live, trivialized in junk merchandise, and mostly ignored by the younger generation. The thing is, the early Gumby cartoons are pretty cool and quite trippy. And, though recently displaced by Wallace and Gromit, Gumby and Pokey were the most famous clay animated characters ever created.

Gumby recently celebrated his 50th anniversary and Clokey Productions and Premavision Animation Studios (still producing Gumby and Davey & Goliath segments) have updated their websites. It’s worth a visit to Gumby World to check out its funky video section with several Gumby episodes and Art Clokey’s pioneering abstract GUMBASIA shorts from the 1950s.
