A fantastic movie for kid's of all ages!

"I was lucky enough to see Gumby the Movie in the theater when it was released. I liked it so much I saw it three times! This is a wonderful film for parents to share with their children. Gumby does not try to be "edgy" or include adult humor meant to fly over kid's heads and make their parents laugh. It is a sincere, non-cynical story with great imagination and a clear sense of what is right and what it wrong. It is also very cute! You will get to meet Gumby's dog named Lowbelly. Lowbelly's belly is so low to the ground he rolls around on a skateboard! You also meet Gumby's bandmates Fatbuckle, Thinbuckle, and No Buckle. This movie will put a smile on your face and a song in your heart. If you are an adult, it will make you feel young again. If you are a kid, this will be the movie that makes you fall in love with Gumby and his friends. With so much entertainment aimed at children that is not really appropriate for them out there now, it is great to have a movie like this. You can feel safe showing it to your kids and you will also enjoy it yourself."
Gumby: Director's cut was better

"I bought this DVD as a little treat for my birthday. I was unsure about what the director's cut would do to this movie and, despite not seeing it for a while, I knew what was going to be in it.
For the most part, the Director's Cut was a an improvement over the original. Art Clokey and the editor that helped him knew what to cut and how to do it without calling attention to itself. There were a few cuts that felt abrupt and, knowing what was supposed to come next made it obvious for me what was cut. Also, a few continuity bloopers came about due to the cutting. However, these new bloopers are not more noticable than the bloopers that were present. Most importantly, this new cut gets rid of scenes that, quite frankely, just bogged the film down and were never needed. This film works without the cut scenes and is more enjoyable than the first cut, which I enjoyed very much as well. My only big complaint was that it cut out No Buckle's (the yellow Clayboy with white hair) first big scene and he doesn't get a line until the middle of the film. For the most part, however, this film rocked (and to be fair, most fans of Gumby are tuning in for Gumby, Goo, Pokey, and Prickle, not the new characters).
If you're reading this and sweating that you're favorite scenes were cut, never fear, because they are all included in a deleted scenes section. Between the movie and the deleted scenes section, the first cut is included on the DVD. There's an added treat, as a scene that was never a scene in the movie is included (it's a scene with Minga and Gumba, right before Gumby is seen cleaning the fire truck).
The greatest special feature are the four Gumby episodes. It includes one from the 50s and three 80s ones. They're were all enjoyable, and two of the 80s ones included Denali the mastadon and Tilly the Chicken. Very good episodes.
If you're a Gumby fan, you'll want this DVD. I absolutly love this movie and this DVD is a great tribute to Gumby. Buy it.
I almost forgot...it includes a little Gumby toy. How much better can it get? (That was rhetorical, don't answer that :) )."
Gumby's big-time adventure!

"I just watched the Gumby movie again, and I can say that it holds up extremely well if you're a 80's Gumby fan.
This full-length movie tells the story of Gumby's attempt to create a music video with his new metal band 'The Clayboys'. This probably sounds familiar since Gumby already created videos on the 80s show with his old synth band 'The Gumbys'. I guess Gumby is obsessed with MTV.
This movie introduces us to several new characters. There are 'The Clayboys' themselves: Fatbuckle, Thinbuckle, and Nobuckle. Then there are the band's groupies, Tara and Ginger. And finally, there is the band's canine mascot Lowbelly. The Blockheads discover a special secret about Lowbelly, and they devise a scheme to use the dog to become super rich. Of course, this brings them into conflict with Gumby and his many pals.
Almost all the main characters from the 80s show are represented in this movie, with Pokey, Prickle, and Goo playing large roles. Even the Groobee has a scene! Denali the mammoth is the only notable absence.
There are lots of side stories scattered throughout the movie. Several of them have a science fiction theme, with references to 2001, the Terminator, and Star Wars. There are some funny moments as well, especially the scene with the overturned wheelbarrow. And surprisingly, there's even be a hint of romance towards the end!
This movie came out on VHS back in 1995, and we haven't seen any new Gumby adventures since (other than the short animation for the Rhino DVD menus). Hopefully he'll be back with more adventures soon. But at the very least, somebody release this movie on DVD!"
Gumby is Way Out in This One

"Gumby, The Movie, can be viewed 1000 time and you will alway see something new. The creeky plot and acting adds to its nostalgic charm. My 3-year-old twins love it, and I even catch myself singing along from time to time. Thank goodness that Art Clokey has stayed true to his "vision", instead of trying to update his classic style."
