* AllJustADream: A few episodes end this way, such as [[spoiler:"Blocks in the Head," "Proxy Gumby" and "A Moving Experience."]]



* ArtEvolution: Gumby started with out small, round eyes, that had little, red beads for pupils, no eyebrows, and the inside of his mouth was the same color of his skin rather than being black. Same thing with Gumbo. Merchandise today has Gumby with red eye pupils again.

* GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion: The 1950s and 1960s episodes got this, when they were rerun as part of the 1988 revival series. All of the old episodes had their soundtracks redubbed with new music, voice tracks and sound effects to sound consistent with the new episodes of the time. Many Gumby fans did not like this change, and were very disappointed when the initial DVD releases of the series from Rhino used the redubbed soundtracks (due to [[ClumsyCopyrightCensorship legal rights]] involving the John Seely/Capitol stock music utilized in the originals.) Current DVD and digital releases of the 1950s and 1960s shorts utilize the original soundtracks, while the redubbed versions have become harder to find in recent years (thankfully).

* ViewersAreMorons: The 1988 theme song, which rephrases the original theme's lyric "If you've got a heart, then Gumby's a part of you" to make it easier to understand:
--> ''If he's in your heart, then he'll be a part of you,''
--> ''If you have a heart, then Gumby's the pal for you.''

** Also in "Gumbastic," Gumby encounters a bunch of little flat clay circles spinning around, and he mashes them all into a large green circle that then becomes another Gumby (with red eyes, ala his merchandising appearances), whom then proceeds to [[LatexPerfection unzip himself]] to reveal two Blockheads-like characters with cylinder-shaped heads, stacked up in a FullBodyDisguise.



* ReCut: In 2007, the movie received a 76 minute "director's cut," which strangely omitted certain scenes from the original 90 minute version. Cuts that create noticeable plotholes.
