NCircle To Release "The Gumby Show - The Complete 50's Series" on DVD

Children and family entertainment specialty label NCircle Entertainment will be releasing The Gumby Show – The Complete 50’s Series on DVD in September

“We’re releasing the complete 50’s episodes,” says Joe Clokey, son of Gumby’s late creator Art Clokey.  “We went back to the original a/b camera rolls and mastered the episodes back to their original length with their original soundtracks.  It includes all of the episodes, plus Gumbasia, and the original non-aired pilot, and a photo gallery.”

“Everything shot in the 50’s is in this set. And because those original film rolls were only ever used once, the transfers look amazing.  The colors are rich and you’ll see details of sets like you’ve never seen, and the episodes are now back to their 9-11 min. length.  In 1960 they were edited to two five minute shorts.  Now it’s all original everything and they look like they were just made!”

NCircle will have them in big box stores (Target, Walmart and others) starting Septmember 22nd.  The DVD set will debut at Gumby Fest in Glendora , CA on Sept. 19th.  The packaging art will feature a clay Gumby and Pokey, 50’s style, on the front.  The release will also include an exclusive 50’s style Gumby bendable toy.  Clokey adds, “It’s the first bendable ever made that’s shaped like the 50’s Gumby.”

UPDATE:  The DVD set is now available on Amazon.com for $11.04 (a steal!). The cover is posted below. (with bendable figure: $21.24)
