Movie Info

Good old lovable Gumby, that odd green shape changer with a perpetual look of wonder, has been delighting children and adults with his fantastical adventures on television for over 40 years. Now he and his pliable pals, Pokey, Pickle, and Goo embark upon their greatest adventure: a feature film of their own. Unlike other more contemporary animated offerings such as Toy Story, which offer fast-paced, at times hip and sophisticated, stories Gumby remains true to his innocent, 1950s roots. The adventure begins when the nefarious Blockheads steal Lowbelly, Gumby's beloved dog, to harvest the valuable pearl drops he makes whenever he cries. To keep Gumby from finding out, they replace Lowbelly with a robot dog. This works and so they make doubles for Gumby and all his pals causing all sorts of fun and confusion when the heroes find out and begin fighting their "twins" inside a variety of storybooks.

Audience Reviews for Gumby: The Movie

A Gumby movie about farmer's trusts, sweet guitar shredding, a dog that cries actual pearls, kidnappings, evil robot duplicates, trippy music sequences and how you should never borrow money. AKA How'd I miss this one when I was a kid? Honestly, a pretty solid movie with a handful of pop culture references and enjoyable Gumby fun for all.

2/12/16 Growing up as a kid I was OBSESSED with this movie! So much so that all these years later I still remembered the whole plot and characters perfectly. I honestly have no idea why. My best guess is because it is so different from anything else ever created. It is an extremely basic stop motion with extremely minimalist characters and plot. It is more than obvious to see that this stop motion was put together with a small team and very basic directions, but that is what makes it so great. The characters (especially Gumby) are more than aware of the fact that they are just made of clay. They don't mind getting cut into little pieces because they know they can stick back together and change into whatever object they wish. Another thing I think that drew me to this movie as a kid was the world these characters live in. They all come from books or VHS tapes and can willingly travel between them to have the most bizarre experiences. For anyone who wasn't around when this movie was made or are in the mood for a simple blast from the past, please check out this movie. It isn't high budget and squeaky clean like stop motion of today. It is simple and isn't perfect, but that's what makes it so great.

Decent, but nowhere near as good as the TV show from the 1950's and 1960's or even the reboot TV series from the 1980's.
