Gumby: The Movie

Unknown Premiere

USA | 80 MINUTES | English |


The Original Green Hero! Written and directed by Gumby creator Art Clokey, this movie was extremely popular with children in the mid-'90s. Now, remastered and re-edited, Gumby's back with his band, the Clayboys, in a totally original clay-animation adventure! The beauty of big-eyed Gumby is his zest for life, love for people and respect for everything green. When Gumby finds out that the local farmers are in need of some help, he decides to put on a benefit concert. Upon hearing the music during the show, Gumby's dog Lowbelly cries tears of real pearls. Trouble starts when the bad-guy Blockheads learn about the pearls, and decide to kidnap the precious-teared pup, substituting robot clones first for Lowbelly, then for Gumby and all his pals. In a merry rout, they overcome their own clones and end up starring in a music video which makes enough money for the small farmers to land on their feet. There are trains and planes, fights and knights, thrills and spills! True to all classic Gumby adventures, the action takes us in and out of books, transporting us from toyland to Camelot and even to outer space in a Star Wars-esque spoof. Through it all, Gumby's invincible and totally optimistic personality shines bright. Ages 4+. --Sara Nodjoumi
