With the help of trusted special agent Honeydew, Monkey faced-off against Huntor, the self-described "ultimate cosmic hunter;" Magmanamus, a grumpy lava creature; Orgon Grindor, a musician with an evil streak; Rasslor, the intergalactic wrestling champ; Barbequor, a hungry deity looking to devour earth; and Peltra, a female foe dead set on skinning Monkey for his precious fur.

    35 years after the original shorts were created, Art Clokey started this updated take on Gumby. Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo.

    Gumby first appeared in the 1953 film short Gumbasia. Later, in 1956, Gumby and his horse friend Pokey hit the airways on The Howdy Doody Show in their first shorts. It was so popular that it became its own show in 1957 called The Gumby Show.

    This show ran until 1967. In the 1970's Gumby and friends were totally ignored. The 1980's brought back new life to Gumby with tons of toys and new episodes in a new series called Gumby Adventures in 1988.

    Clokey updated the take on Gumby. Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo get a farm and band of their own. Gumby gets a little sister and a grandmother. More and more of the important characters actually look like humans. The Blockheads appear more frequently, giving them official recurring villain status. They don't quite have the outrageously bizzarre appeal of the earlier cartoons, but it's still Gumby at heart.

    Character Info:

    Gumby - The green clay boy Pokey - The red clay pony Prickle - The yellow clay dinosaur Goo - The blue clay mermaid Minga - The pink clay girl, Gumby's little sister Gumbo - Gumby's father Gumba - Gumby's mother Professor Kapp - The red clay scientist The Blockheads - Two square-headed red clay foesmoreless

    Welcome to the Liquid Television guide at TV.com. What words come to mind when you think of Liquid Television? Perhaps smart..funny..dramatic...maybe even weird. Liquid Television was THE show for "up-and-coming" animators to show what they got. Originally shown on BBC-2 in December of 1990, MTV picked up the show in June of 1991, and lasted 3 seasons. Who said that cartoons had to be drawn by hand? This show combined computer animation, drawings by hand, paper cut-outs, and even live action to make something entertaining for the viewers. A total of 8-15 animated shorts were shown per 30 minute episode (24 minutes without commercials..though times have changed). Broadcast History (MTV)* June 1991: Sunday, 7:30 PM Sept. 1992-Nov. 1992: Tuesday, 10:00 PM Jan. 1994-Mar. 1994: Sunday, 11:30 PM * = only for new episodes.

    Cartoon Network (ended 1999)
    I Am Weasel follows the miss-adventures of Weasel, a genius who succeeds in everything he does, and his sometimes partner, sometimes enemy, I.R. Baboon. Clearly not as smart as Weasel, using a unique speech pattern, Baboon is the loser on the show, rarely, if ever, succeeding in anything. The show wouldn't be complete without the Red Guy, who has joined the cast in the second season, and who originally was on the Cow and Chicken show. I Am Weasel was originally only the middle segment on the Cow and Chicken show, both created by David Fiess. Soon enough, Weasel received his own show, and lasted for five seasons. Using a clever combination of slapstick humor and irony at the same time, making the show appealing to adults and young children.moreless
