Gumby on Home Video
« on: April 05, 2012, 11:38:36 am »
Since classic Gumby returning to television with its original soundtracks has been a hot topic lately, I thought why not add a filmography with VHS and DVD availability.

Here are a few things everyone should know about this guide. Some of the 1950's shorts have recently been edited back into their original 11-minute format after being split into halves for syndicated reruns. Since not all have been restored in this manner, and VHS releases used the syndicated cut-downs, I will be listing DVD releases underneath the titles of both syndicated halves.

Lastly, this guide should not be referenced as a definitive source for placing these shorts in chronological order. For the most part, I am going off the order the 1950's and 1980's episodes are listed on the official Gumby website. For the 1960's episodes, I am revising the order to be closer to an accurate order in which they were produced. As for listing the year they were produced/aired, it is all an estimate.

NOTE: Only official, authorized releases will be listed here. VHS and DVD releases by GoodTimes will not be included because they were not authorized releases. The same can be said for public domain compilations. Also, the 7-DVD set released by Rhino is not included in this listing due to the fact they have their 1980's redubbed soundtracks.

With no further ado, here is the unofficial Gumby filmography with home video availability.

I always wondered why "Gumby Business," "Toy Fun," "In a Fix" and "Train Trouble" were included on that New Christmas Classics DVD. Could it be because they involve Gumby and Pokey playing around with many vintage toys?
"Train Trouble" also featured the first appearance of that Lionel 2035 model steam locomotive that the Clokeys used on many subsequent Gumby episodes (and the Davey and Goliath episode "All Alone")

Not only that, but both the VHS and DVD holiday collections include "The Golden Gosling" which has absolutely nothing to do with any holiday that I know of.

I recall you mentioning about the split-up episodes being restored to original length. I recall Goodtimes actually attempted restoring a 1956 episode the same way on their "Christmas with Gumby" VHS (later reissued to DVD), which included "Toy Crazy" and "Toy Joy" re-combined into one long episode, with all birthday references edited out though ("He was dreaming about his... presents." "Can I help you choose yourpresent?") But having that VHS as a kid always made me prefer watching "Toy Crazy" and "Toy Joy" as one long episode combined (which is how the restored version is presented.) I also did a comparison of the original and the redub, actually...

I'm curious...which of the early episodes have now been reissued in their 11-minute formats?

A total of 9 of them have been restored.

"Too Loo" + "Gumby Concerto" = "Too Loo"
"Yard Work Made Easy" +"Robot Rumpus" = "Robot Rumpus"
"Toy Crazy" + "Toy Joy" = "Toy Crazy"
"Outcast Marbles" + "Odd Balls" = "Outcast Marbles"
"The Magic Wand" + "The Magic Show" = "The Magic Wand"
"The Racing Game" + "Gumby Racer" = "The Racing Game"
"Rain Spirits" + "The Kachinas" = "Rain Spirits"
"In the Dough" + "Baker's Tour" = "In the Dough"
"Tree Trouble" + "Eager Beavers" = "Tree Trouble"
