Little Clay Friend

Gumby: The Movie was my first introduction to Gumby. Arguably the most iconic claymation character ever created. Along with his faithful companion Pokey of course. Gumby: The Movie is very old fashioned. It was released in the 90’s, but it looks like it was made in the 50’s. Part of me has a hard time believing it was released in theaters, let alone four months after I was born. I saw the movie later on in my early childhood (on VHS of course). I became an instant fan and I watched the movie several times after. The dialogue may be a little clunky, but it makes up for it in creative claymation. The only real complaint I have isn’t for the movie itself. My complaint is that the DVD cuts out several scenes from the VHS version. To the point where I couldn’t even enjoy watching it. And since video tapes are all but extinct, there’s really no way of seeing the movie in its prime. Oh well, at least I have my memories.
