Gumby: 50th Anniversary Retrospective
As has already been announced, Gumby has officially turned 50 years of age. To celebrate this monumental occassion in American history, I’ve put together a little retrospective with episode reviews and links to episode videos. Because Gumby is so worth the effort.
â?In the Doughâ?
Now hereâ??s a bat-s*** crazy episode. Gumby is trying to bake a surprise batch of pastries for his parents before they come home. Pokey shows up to help but they screw it up and the dough explodes out of the oven. After they clean the thing out, a sentient blob of dough beckons them inside the blazing hot cavern. Pokey is hesitant at first until Gumby yells at him, â??WTF is wrong with you? Letâ??s follow him, this guy seems legit!â? So they both crawl inside the oven and discover a world inhabited by living pastries. Itâ??s fun at first, until the giant blob of dough reveals the horrifying truth; Gumby and Pokey are actually in some sort of Hellish alternate universe where pastries eat people! Gumby and Pokey try to escape but end up being baked inside a pie and a jelly roll. And thatâ??s how I learned not to trust strangers, especially if they live inside my oven.
