Gumby Adventures

Show Summary

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

  • This classic show was a great way for kids to get some christian morals. Esp today where there are not many shows for kids 2-5.

    I think this show was great for young children and wish it was brought back to a station like SMILE TV one of TBN.org children's channels. This was a show that allowed children to watch animation that was not violent like in today's shows. The kids today see way too much violence before they turn 5. This promotes social and violent interactive behaviors that can carry on throughout life. If we want our children to be wholesome, we need to continue to introduce shows like Gumby and Davey and Goliath which are good shows for children to watch with good morals.moreless

    This show rocks! Its about Gumby (Of course!), Pokey (Gumby`s pony pal), Goo , Prickle, the Blockheads and the rest. I loved the show when I was younger and I`ve also bought the toys. I love the stop motion with clay which was used in this show. I love the song (The original one) which was used in the early episodes. I grew up with the 2nd one which I hated! :P I wish the show was still on. I miss gumby so much. Im happy to see some of the episodes on youtube which brings back memories... If you would like, Youi can see some vids on the net about gumby. Trust me, you would like them. ;)moreless

    Gumby has many adventures with his friends pokey prikle and goo. he often gets into trouble with the actions of his adventrures. he also has a family who cares about him his mom and dad and his sister minga. Gumby and friends must always find a way to foil the plans of the pesky blockheads. this show is never short on laughs and can put you in a good mood. there are other charecters including the grobees and the professor who has all the wackiest inventions. this show is a classic and it should be brought back. Gumby and his friends always find away to solve their problems as well as have fun.moreless
  • The Revamped Saga of Gumby

    10
    This series is much better than the original version of Gumby. In this revamped saga, Gumby has a little sister named Minga. The Blockheads appeared more often than the early series. Sometimes Pokey, Prickle, and Goo don't hang with each other or Gumby. The 80s episodes are much more hilarious because we all get to see some wacky activities going on. It's too bad that Art Clokey stopped making new episodes. I am a huge fan of clay animation. Even though the 80s series ended with a movie, I'll always remember Gumby as my favorite clay character. Even no matter how old I get.moreless
