Gumby's digital makeover

Posted on

Gumby’s turning 50, so you can forgive him for wanting a facelift. When I first heard that Gumby was getting a digital makeover for the 21st century, I feared the worst — a CGI Gumby would be sacrilege, no? Fortunately, according to this New York Daily News article, it’s just a digital remastering of the classic clunky claymation clips, made to look brand spankin’ new on forthcoming DVDs and a big-screen re-release of 1995’s Gumby Movie. The old episodes are also being released to YouTube; the first one is below. Check it out and tell us if you think the renovated green guy looks too pristine, or if he’s still Gumby, dammit.
