Gumby detailed the claymation adventures of sweet little green Gumby and his equally sweet little horse Pokey with a healthy dose of surrealism, as in the episode where Gumby falls through his mirror and enters the Mirror World, where everything is backward. There is also the sinister Blockheads, who cause nothing but trouble. Though widely regarded as a classic, it may seem a little primitive to contemporary audiences. But anyone who looks past the surface will find the level of imagination and inventiveness unchanged by the decades.
