I remember watching Gumby. It's like they were bringing quite a few old shows back in the 80s, like that Woody Woodpecker Show and Gumby. Anyway, I liked the show so much, I named my lion that I got for my sixth birthday, "Pokey" after Gumby's pony pal.
man, gumby was cool, until i got older. thne i realized how childish it was, but then remembered it was directed towards little kids in the first place. i think i lose a little respect for something that is directed towards lower-intelected beings, but then again, thats kinda mean, and thats not me saying it. . .its the safeway select cola. . .
I always found Gumby's ability to Moonwalk everywhere incredibly sweet
Then they introduced Goo. She could fly, shoot wads of blue paste that acted liked Spider-Man webs and even shapeshift to a limited degree.
Then came Bee. Give him a pale of sawdust and old nails, he'd erect any wooden structure you needed in 3 seconds flat. This little guy could own Jesus at carpentry
Then they upped stuff even more by introducing his relative (cousin, brother, whatever the heck) who welded metal....that would've been the coolest character ever, except they made his "biker" persona a little too much like the guy off the Village People.
"Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly; the good deeds along with the ill, and let me be judged accordingly. The rest...is silence."
