Yeah, I thought about a cutesy title, but decided to play it straight instead.

I rather like Davey and Goliath, it's a wee bit preachy but I still tend to enjoy the episodes.

Never seen a Gumby episode though.

I remember watching Gumby (e.g. Robot Rumpus from MST3K short fame and others), Davey and Goliath, Jot, etc. as a kid.

From a pretty traumatic childhood, he certainly made something out of himself.

He lived with his mother for a while, but when her second husband made her choose between him and her son, Clokey was sent to an orphanage.

OMG!!!  What a bastard!

Bless his heard and RIP

Never seen a Gumby episode though.

Not even Robot Rumpus?

Did they hang his head?    .     .      .      Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I like the fact that apparently he hated doing the David and Goliath episodes. I remember seeing a few when I was a kid and even then I knew they were shit.

If you like Davey & Goliath, you'll probably like Gumby as it's a very similar thing without the preachy parts.

I have not seen an episode in about 15 years but I liked D&G and G as a kid.  He had a pretty sad childhood.  That is just the saddest thing i can think of  :speechless:

I was a HUGE Gumby fan as a kid. I've probably seen every episode of Gumby, both new and old. Never got around to the movie, though. RIP, Mr. Clokey.

The movie is available on DVD if you'd like to see it. I think it was the last Gumby adventure that was made.

I just hope this doesn't lead to a bastardization movie revival with Will Smith voicing Gumby.

Yeah, but he didn't last very long before he was fired. The first cut of Gumby's Robot Rumpus was a clay-bath! Well, much moreso than the final cut.
