The character debuted in 1956, as a segment of "The Howdy Doody Show". He was succesful enough to receive his own spin-off show. The original ''Gumby'' shorts aired on NBC in 1957. After the series' network run ended, Clokey bought back the rights to his characters and produced new ''Gumby'' episodes for {{syndication}} in the [[TheSixties 1960s]] and the [[TheEighties 1980s]]. A Gumby direct-to-video movie was released circa 1995.

Limit one trope name per line in example lists. Potholing trope names in example lists is strictly forbidden. The rule is that you must always use the unaltered trope name. If alternate names exist, they must be accessed via wikiwords, not pothole markup. Added context to Trapped In TV Land.
* EyePop / WildTake: Any cast member especially Pokey, whenever he's surprised or gets scared.

Five Man Band is a rigidly defined trope, and there's more to it than just having five members. The Big Guy is missing, and Tagalong Kid is not a Five Man Band type.
* FiveManBand ** TheHero: Gumby ** TheLancer: Pokey ** TheSmartGuy: Prickle ** TheChick: Goo ** TagalongKid: Minga

* BodyToJewel: Lowbelly, a skateboard-riding dachshund, cries pearls whenever his master, Gumby, leaves [[spoiler: or changes shape when he performs with his band. This fuels the Blockheads' latest get-rich-quick scheme, which for some reason involves [[CutLexLuthorACheck making robot duplicates of Gumby's band]]]].

** At the end of the lightsaber fight between Gumby and his robot clone, the latter finishes it by slicing Gumby into pieces. Upon seeing this death, the Blockheads rejoice by dancing happily, but just then, Gumby comes back to life by ''transforming into miniature versions of himself'', much to the Blockheads' surprise.

** Also, after "Take Me Away", Lowbelly rides his skateboard over to the Clayboys, but accidentally jumps in front of Gumby and pushes him on Fatbuckle's drum. * HarmlessFreezing: Zig-zagged. When Gumby and the Clayboys get kidnapped by the Blockheads, they become frozen solid after getting locked up in the refrigerator truck that the Blockheads stole and disguised as a KBLM-TV truck. Later, Gumby was thawed out when rescued by his friends and Claybert and he wakes up alive and well, but unfortunately, the Clayboys melted and they have to be taken to Professor Kapp so their bodies have to be bulged up again. Then Goo gets kidnapped and freezes too, so Gumby must spend the entire climax to save her; eventually, Goo gets better after being rescued and thawed out.

* 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. * ShoutOut: The lightsaber fight is an obvious homage to StarWars.
