Gumby's Best Episodes: The Original Adventures

Add to Watchlist

These episodes follow the classic adventures of Gumby and his best friend Pokey the horse as they are dogged by the always inept but pesky Blockheads. Created by stop motion claymation pioneer and artist Art Clokey and his wife Ruth in the 1950s, they were all sculpted and produced by hand in clay one frame at a time. Premiering on The Howdy Doody show, they proved so popular that they eventually became their own show, The Adventures of Gumby (from which the episodes in this collection are selected).

As charming today as they were when new, these lighthearted adventures are a fun look into the infancy of the stop motion animation industry that we enjoy today. Included are sixteen classic episodes: Tree Trouble, Lion Drive, Yard Work Made Easy, Sad King Otts Daughter, The Blockheads, Gumby's Concerto, The Glob, Bakers Tour, The Black Knight, The Kachinas, In a Fix, The Witty Witch, The Groobee, Gumby Racer, Rain for Roo and Hidden Valley.
