Ruined by the half-@$$ audio

"I am a cellist and very sensitive to the audio aspects of movies. The original Gumby show created by Clokey in 1950s featured a beautiful orchestral soundtrack matching its classic clay medium and video presentation. When re-adapted in the 1980s, the awesome soundtrack was replaced by a crappy Casio keyboard. It breaks my heart to watch these dubbed over episodes. I wish I knew why the people who re-released Gumby PAID to have the AUDIO DOWN-GRADED FROM ORCHESTRAL TO SYNTHESIZER. If you have never seen the original Gumby episodes, then this, of course, will not be so irksome because THE ACTUAL VIDEO CONTENT OF THE EPISODES ARE THANKFULLY UNCORRUPTED FROM THEIR ORIGINAL RELEASE. Though changed, highly recommened for the uninitiated, great for your son or daughter or the kid in you!"
It's childhood all over again

"I'm a kid of the 80's, so I didn't watch Gumby when it was on Howdy Doody. I did see it in syndication in the 80's and 90's, however. I love this DVD...my favorite of the old cartoons on it is "In the Dough." Personally, I think anyone who doesn't like claymation is shortsighted...this technology was pioneering for its time, and has so much more heart than today's computerized cartoons."
