Gumby & Pokey Mega Mini Kit by Running Press


Gumby is a strange green humanoid created from Plasticine by Art Clokey in the 1950s.

 He is the main character of his animation shorts made using stop-gap animation, during which he goes on adventures and solves problems alongside his side-kick Pokey, an orange horse who talks.

Between 1953 and 1969, these shorts were aired on NBC as The Gumby Show, there was a revival of the show during the years 1982 to 1989 called The Gumby Adventures and was the subject of many reruns over the years.

In total Art Clokey made 220 episodes featuring Gumby and Pokey's adventures all of which have been shown on T.V in many countries over the course of the last 50 years since his creation.

It was also released on Home Video and there was even a film called Gumby: The Movie released independently by Clokey Productions in 1995.

The Running Press Mini Kit  features posable miniature Gumby and Pokey figures and a mini book which is crammed full of Trivia and information on The Gumby Story and his creator Art Clokey.

It's a perfect little set for anyone who loves these too funny little characters and wants to relive their childhood or even Gumby and Pokey's adventures themselves!
