welcome home gumby! ~
yep there's a new gumby in the toyroom ~
he's oldschool.. & hey, he's looking to the left which is very unusual for a gumby bendy ~
he's 60 years old now & looks the way he did way back in the original 50's gumby adventures ~
this collector's edition bendy came with the newly remastered original gumby adventure dvds ~
from n circle & premavision ~
this 2 disc set has the original 50's episodes from art's original film reels with original sound remastered by his son joe clokey ~
including material that was originally cut out & episodes restored to their original continuity.. moon trip / trapped on the moon, baker's tour / in the dough put back together the way art originally intended them to be :) ~
i have to say i couldn't count how many times i've seen the original gumby episodes but i tell you i'm excited to watch each & every one of them all over again.. that's love! ~
we've all been waiting for this brand new bendy toy here at the lost & found & gumbyland ~
n circle / nj croce mark on back ~
a little color & shape comparison ~
gumby meets boopy (i'm watching these dvds now & loving how clear the images are, now i can see details like maker marks on the toys in the toyshop, as well as animator's marks & fingerprints..lol) the dvds include a photo gallery, art's film gumbasia & the pilot episode (which is said to be unaired, but i remember it being shown as 'baby gumby' along with the 80's new adventures..) ~
thank you over & over joe! & everybody be sure to visit gumbyland ~
p.s. i guess other serious gumby fans might relate, i'm an oldschool gumby fan who raised a new era gumby fan & a bunch of lines from old gumby shows have gotten stuck in our heads over the years..
'plenty of roots!'
'bail out! bail out!'
'now my people not starve..'
'only 15 more minutes! only 15 more minutes! hurry!'
'pokey, what's wrong with you? *garbled sound*'
'you're in magicland, anything can happen here..'
these dvds brought them back for us..
