"Goodtimes is in clear copyright violation by selling this. They copied it off an old broadcast(s) and then made another generation or two after that. Art Clokey holds all of the rights to the old and new Gumby series and has spent much of his money keeping the copyrights current through the years. By supporting Goodtimes, fans will be funnelling money away from Art, who is saving his money to restore his original masterpieces. The only legal videos out there are the Famlily Home Entertainment releases from the 80's which contain the 50's and 60's episodes with their original music, and the Rhino Entertainment dvd's of today. We hold the rights for the original music, but were challenged by the original music library on the fhe versions. They say that we have the rights for broadcasting and theatrical, but must re-pay for video sales. The next time we get Gumby on TV we will use original everything, and when we have enough money we will re-purchase the music rights for dvd's. For now, Goodtimes is in violation of our rights and the music companies. Please support us through Rhino, and check at gumby.com where we will give all of you all we can. Gumby loves you."
This is the REAL deal!

"GOODTIMES had to use 16mm prints BUT it doesn't matter...the original SOUNDTRACK is intact. The GOODTIMES DVDs are the ones to buy over the altered RHINO discs. Don't let the price fool you! This is the GUMBY and POKEY you grew up with!"
Great compilation of Gumby and Pokey episodes

"This DVD has several fun and interesting Gumby episodes, and runs about 55 minutes. I love the old traditional claymation look, and it was obviously an eye-opener to my children who are used to computer generated cartoons. They could observe how the clay was made and modeled, bent, and twisted to make the movements, and I explained how a series of still pictures are taken, and then moved at a fast rate to make it seem like it is moving. My favorite episode is the one where Gumby is telling Pokey on the radio that George Washington is in the middle of the Delaware river, not realizing that Pokey has been captured and the Hessians are listening in. Fortunately for the Americans, the Hessians don't believe it, "A talking box and a talking horse." and laugh it off. Gumby thinks he took the Hessians by surprise. Pokey says, "they might not be so lucky next time.""

"This is the Gumby with the music you remember. The Rhino versions are painfull to watch. It is a shame that Art Clokey is not making any dough on this DVD (see previous review) but my kid won't be a kid forever and he can't really wait for the legal battles fot the music rights to pan out. My apologies to Mr. Clokey for buying this disc.
The quality is quite good...some episodes better than others...and all of them certainly show better than they did on the old black and white television sets we grew up watching them on.
If you have smaller children you might want to be aware that a few of the episodes feature guns, and the episode titled "Gold Rush Gumby" shows Native Americans in a manner which would be unacceptable by today's standards.
If in the near future an "authorized" package with more episodes and the original music comes out, I would certainly love to have it, but for now this really is good Gumby."
