Gumby: The Movie is a 1995 clay animation feature film featuring Gumby. The movie is rated G for Good Chase by the NERB. The plot revolves around Gumby and his friends working together to save both the town's farms, and Gumby's dog, Lowbelly. This movie was not a hit in theaters, and was only in limited release, and so, a cut version of 90 minutes was released as a direct-to-video on December 15, 1995, by Nose-House. This VHS was also disturbed by Astral Home Video. In April 2007, a director's cut version of the movie was shown at the Tribeca Family Film Festival. This version of the film in 77 minutes was released on DVD by Genius Products, LLC on April 22, 2008.
Opening sequence clipEdit
Part of the 1967 Gumby theme song, along with part of the episode "The Glob" were shown on a television set at the beginning of the movie.
When The Blockheads' E-Z Loan company threatens to take away the farms belonging to the small farmers, Gumby and his band, the Clayboys, decide to have a benefit concert to save the farms. But when the Blockheads find out that Gumby's dog, Lowbelly, cries pearls when he sees the Clayboys perform, they decide to kidnap Lowbelly and force him to cry pearls. When he doesn't respond, they kidnap Gumby and the Clayboys and create robot clones of them. With the help of Pokey, Goo, fans Tara and Ginger (the former replacing Goo as Gumby's girlfriend), and talent agent Lucky Claybert, Gumby takes on his robot clone and is still in time for his video taping session. At a picnic, Gumby announces that he's opening his own farm loan company. The Blockheads are forced to weed Gumby's garden, and Gumby and Pokey decide that things are looking up for them.
- The voice of Gumby is actually Dallas McKennon, whom also voiced Gumby in the early 1960s cartoons, but sadly purposefully miscredited as the Voice Coach, as he was in the 80's Gumby TV Show. This movie was his final performance before he died in 2009.
