-->'''Servo:''' Wow, Mrs. Gumby is stacked.



-->'''Mike:''' ''(as Gumby)'' Hey, you can throw things through dad! I'm gonna get an anvil.
* DecapitationPresentation: During "The End" sequence, one of the robot's heads is shown hung over the garage door, and its eyes follow Gumby around. The short plays this as good fun. The Bots have a decidedly different reaction:
-->'''Servo:''' AHHH! They hung his head! Oh...\\
'''Crow:''' Now I'm ready for years of powerful Adlerian therapy, Mike.\\
'''Servo:''' They hung his head. Oh-oh, this is worse than ''Film/{{Se7en}}!''

-->'''Mike:''' Thank goodness for the internal genitalia!



-->'''Servo:''' [[SarcasmMode Crackers? Wow! Maybe they can have white rice later!]]

!!The ''{{MST3K}}'' presentation has examples of:
* BrainBleach: The ending of the short cause Servo and Crow to go into HeroicBSOD.
-->'''Servo:''' ''They HUNG his HEAD!'' This is worse than ''Film/{{Se7en}}''!
* CreatorBreakdown: After seeing the short, Crow and Servo spend a host segment doing a skit about poor innocent robots being victimized by obnoxious clay creatures. They can't even finish it because they're so distraught.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: It was never an issue in any of the ''Gumby'' series, but ''MST3K'' brought it up.
-->'''Narrator:''' But on this day, something unexpected happened.\\
'''Mike:''' Gumby was nude.
** And later when they first see Gumbo:
--->'''Servo:''' So he just goes to work starkers?
* RunningGag: Pokey taking a dump.
* ShoutOut: To ''WallaceAndGromit'' and ''DaveyAndGoliath''.
