** 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.

* TotemPoleTrench: In "Wishful Thinking," Gumby and Pokey break into Prickle's house dressed as a ghost attempting to trick Prickle into telling them what he wished for on his birthday. Unfortunately, just as Prickle was about to tell them, Pokey lost his equilibrium causing Gumby to fall off his back and on top of Prickle. The fall caused Prickle to start screaming thinking the ghost had swallowed him.

* AIIsACrapshoot: Every time Gumby tries to use [[TincanRobot robots]] to help with the house, help with the farm, or speeding up production of ''Goo's Pies,'' they either malfunction, the chicken pecks at the keys of the computer controlling them, or [[ThePrankster those pesky Blockheads]] are messing with the remote.

* BullyingADragon: Literally occurs in "The Elephant and the Dragon." Both creatures work for a storybook king (the Elephant as manual labor, the Dragon as a castle guard), but the Elephant keeps picking arguments with the Dragon. This pisses off the Dragon, who torches people's houses with his his breath. To stop their arguing, Gumby uses a back-hoe to do the Elephant's job just as efficiently and without arguing with the Dragon (and without torched houses). The Elephant takes the hint and apologizes for causing so much trouble.

** Another instance is in "Prickle's Baby Brudder," where Prickle's little brother (who is a giant dragon from the book 'Saint George') comes to hide from the angry villagers, who accuse him of burning down the village. They soon realize it's actually lightning doing the scorching, and set up a lightning rod to fix the problem.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: May or not be intentional. In the movie, when Gumby discovers that [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Lowbelly cries pearls whenever Gumby performs with the Clayboys,]] his first response is: "But our music isn't sad!"

* LogicalWeakness: Gumby has problems in extreme cold and heat, being clay and all. He either freezes or melts; but if he wasn't clay he wouldn't be able to shapeshift. In the earlier episodes, Gumby was reminded to take his "Gumb-o-meter," a thermometer to let anyone know that his temperature was too hot or too cold.

* GoshDangItToHeck: Prickle often said: "Aw, dinosaur chips!" whenever he was frustrated or annoyed. Other interjections commonly heard: "Gee," "Oh my!," and "Golly!"
