We gave it a B

Equal parts cheesy children’s adventure and psychedelic free-for-all, Gumby always straddled the line between the geeky and the freaky. Rhino’s exhaustive seven-disc set contains 110 episodes of the Claymation classic featuring the little green man and pal Pokey, complete with storyboards and other short films by creator Art Clokey. It’s a little hard to handle in large doses, but as you watch our hero do that rad one-legged slide maneuver, or foil the unsavory Blockheads, you’ll be reminded of one undeniable truth: He’s Gumby, dammit.
