More than a mere TV character, Gumby is a cultural icon. The story of this clay humanoid being starts way back in the 1950s. The Saturday morning sensation, The Gumby Show, first aired way back in 1955 after getting the green light from NBC. You know how the story goes after that. The remarkable stop motion animation won the hearts of audiences. By the early 1990s, the character even had his own movie. You might say he made the big time! These days, you can get loads of merchandise including character-themed old fashioned candy and so much more.

Ever wondered about the inspiration behind the Gumby haircut? Creator Art Clokey based the shape of the character’s head on pictures of his father as a teen. It is meant to represent the poofy cowlick his dad had way back in his youth. What's more, these days, you can get cool, retro candy that mimics that iconic shape perfectly!
