so i will kick off the comments here myself with this old comment i found back at the old gumby bendy thread from gumboflexo: 'Have you seen the Clokey signed Gumby figure with the heart stamp? This is a smaller version of the 76 Gumby without internal wires and face paint. It pops up from time to time and it's very cool.'

then from me:
i even have a picture of it put up there too, calling it a 'prototype'.. note it is slightly smaller than the 76 bicentennial bendy, yep! from july 23, 2015 on page 1 of the comments!!


I wanted to add that due to that undated yellow printed letter, (that I believe was sent out with the packaged prema heart gumby's sold through the mail), that I got that we had found online and I bought from the collector that then had it and what it says on the header card, that I believe that those prema heart wired and marked packaged ones that Joe helped package were made here in the USA. After that Moody Rudy was made in Hong Kong and so it would make sense what Holly wrote about these being made overseas as well at that time.


Another update from Holly, because the bodies don't stretch much on mine, she said "The legs and the body did not stretch that much on the lighter green one either." which was the one she had and doesn't have any more.


I just pulled harder on the legs holding onto the head, and they DO stretch pretty far! The arms are easier to pull and stretch farther, but the rest stretches pretty far too! =)
Try one of yours, Bren! :D
So I think these really are the first stretch Gumby! <3


yes! the super rare old Old gumby superflex bendies i mention in the post are wonderfully rubbery/stretchy too! gumboflexo & i talk about them in the old gumby post if you check the pix there you'll see a couple of old rares with some rare little blockheads & bitty, these prema bendies are the same texture & same light green shade as those old rares..i could tell the minute i saw them.. we talk in the comments there about how fun these oldies are compared to the later versions..


more here - <3


Hey Bren and others that will come and comment here in the future and read the past posts, I just want to say that there is a lot of mystery out there and a lot of misinformation out there about the early Gumby toys and anything that I've commented on here or my comments that I've made here are just my own thoughts and opinions. I don't want to be part of the spread of misinformation, so please be aware of this. I'm not an expert on anything Gumby and have never claimed to be and never will claim to be.
