Gumby is a character in a bunch of old claymation shorts by Art Clokey.  He had a horse friend, Pokey.  That's really all I can remember.

Gumby is a sweet show, classic claymation.  Prickle is my favorite character.  I have a plush Gumby sitting in my car.  Poor guy, half of him has turned from green to brown from all the sunlight exposure.  frown

Did anyone else expect this to be a Monty Python thread? Because I've never heard of Gumby, apart from:

'Gumbercules! I love that guy!'

Goddamn, I love that quote. But uh, to stay on topic, um, Gumby is nothing compared to Gumbercules. A few weeks ago I was pondering buying gumbercules.com when my current domain name runs out.

Also, Pokey the horse is okay.

Don't forget Eddie Murphy's portrayal of Gumby on SNL.

When I was a really little kid, Gumby really scared me.  And no, I am not kidding.

It was on Cartoon Network at One in the morning a while ago... I think they are in pop culture oblivion at the moment.

Gumby was one cool retro cartoon. And I liked it when the whole group played in the band.

I remember one episode, where Pokey was reading a Clayboy magazine. They wanted to see how it felt like to score so they jumped into the magazine and into the Clayboy Mansion. Gumby's bump extended, and rolled in with a girl into a clay ball.

Okay, that didn't really happen, but it was a spoof I saw  big grin

I have fond memories of Gumby from childhood, but I think it was the 80s version, with Gumby and Pokey jumping into a bunch of books and having adventures.

EDIT: Oh, God, I remember the theme:
He once was a little lump of clay,
(GUMBY!)
You should see what Gumby is today.
(Gumby!)
He can walk thourgh any book, with his pony pall Pokey too.
If you've got a heart then Gumby's a part of you.
(Gumby!)


Does my brain have nothing better to do with this space?

If your sad, Gumby maks you glad

If you have a heart then Gumbys a part of you!

(Thats the one I remember)

Mystery Science Theater 3000.  A TV show that involves a guy and two robots heckling bad movies.
