Throughout the world on 10 November, U.S. Marines celebrate the birth of their Corps . I put Gumby to work to show him off and also to say to all Marines including my Husband who considers this Birthday more important than his real birthdate :-) . Happy Birthday Nov 1oth .
I am early but Gumpy was crawling on the truck and went to stand by the Marine Logo's he wanted to enlist I guess so I chased him off the car and he went over fence and into to tree to hide :-)
Gumby is a green clay humanoid character created and modeled by Art Clokey in 1950's, who also created Davey and Goliath. Gumby has been the subject of a 233-episode series of American television as well as a feature-length film and other media. Since the original series' run, he has become well known as an example of stop motion clay animation and an influential cultural icon, spawning many tributes and parodies, including a video game and toys.
Gumby's principal sidekick is Pokey, a talking orange pony. His nemeses are the Blockheads, a pair of humanoid, red-colored figures with block-shaped heads, who wreak mischief and havoc at all times. The Blockheads were inspired by the Katzenjammer Kids, who were always getting into scrapes and causing discomfort to others. Other characters are Gumby's dog Nopey whose entire vocabulary is the word "nope", and Prickle, a yellow dinosaur who sometimes styles himself as a detective with pipe and deerstalker hat like Sherlock Holmes. Also featured are Goo, a flying blue mermaid who spits blue goo balls and can change shape at will; Gumby's mother Gumba and father Gumbo. The later syndicated series in 1988 added Gumby's sister Minga and mastodon friend Denali.
