in 0 collections

This version of Gumby is playing a ukulele and wearing a hula skirt and a makau (fishing hook) necklace.

Gumby is an American clay animation franchise, centered on the titular green clay humanoid character created and modeled by Art Clokey in the 1950s. The character has been the subject of two television series, a feature-length film and other media. Since the original series aired, Gumby has become a famous example of stop-motion clay animation and a cultural icon, spawning tributes, parodies and merchandising.

Beginning in 1982, Gumby was parodied by Eddie Murphy on Saturday Night Live. According to Murphy's parody, when the television cameras were turned off, the sweet Gumby reverted to his true self: an irascible, cigar-chomping celebrity who was highly demanding of the production executives. Whenever the executives refused to give in to his demands, Gumby would assert his star status by saying "I'm Gumby, dammit!" in an exaggerated Jewish accent. This parody sparked a revival of the character.
