Gumby is an American clay animation franchise, centered on the green clay humanoid character created and modeled by Art Clokey. Gumby’s primary sidekick is Pokey, a talking red pony. His nemeses are the G and J Blockheads, a pair of antagonistic red humanoid figures with cube-shaped heads, one with the letter G on the block, the other with the letter J. Other characters include Prickle, a yellow dinosaur capable of breathing fire and who sometimes styles himself as a detective with pipe and deerstalker hat; Goo, a flying blue mermaid who spits blue goo balls and can change shape into any object; Gumbo and Gumba, Gumby’s parents; and Nopey, Gumby’s dog whose entire vocabulary is the word “nope”.
