Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 22, 2015.

NCircle Will Launch the Brand on DVD with “The Gumby Show: The Complete 50s Series” on September 22, 2015.

NCircle Entertainment, the largest independent studio for children’s non-theatrical DVDs, has acquired North American home video and digital distribution rights for all 209 episodes of The Adventures of Gumby, the iconic stop-motion clay animated series from Premavision/Clokey Productions. NCircle will launch the brand on September 22, 2015 with the DVD release “The Gumby Show: The Complete 50s Series.”

“For the first time, we’ve re-mastered these classic episodes from their original camera rolls. The color and texture are amazing in these imaginative fun filled stories. You’ve never seen Gumby like this before! My parent’s vision of a kind-hearted everyman hero continues to touch people of all ages today,” said Joe Clokey, President of Premavision/Clokey Productions. “With Gumby now in his 60th year, I’m thrilled that NCircle will be distributing this truly evergreen icon across multiple home entertainment platforms in the years to come.”Gumby and Pokey win First Place

“We’re honored to be joining Joe and the team at Premavision/Clokey Productions to distribute the entire catalog of The Adventures of Gumby episodes to audiences across the U.S. and Canada,” said Mary Flynn, VP of Sales, Content and Acquisitions of NCircle Entertainment. “Nostalgia and loyalty to Gumby runs very deep for older audiences, and younger viewers respond with the same sense of wonder and fascination as their parents did.”

Gumby’s pure spirit and engaging antics offer timeless entertainment value for the whole family. Created by clay animation pioneers Art and Ruth Clokey in 1955, Gumby premiered on television in the U.S. in 1956 and since has aired in 146 countries. The Gumby character has attracted a huge global base of devoted fans spanning all demographics and generations, from Baby Boomers, to millennials, to kids today.

    • Gumby World
      October 20, 2015 at 7:56 pm

      Yes! Since there are so many Gumby episodes in the 60s, NCircle will break them into 2 DVD releases. The first half will be available in February 2016, and will have a 60’s style Pokey bendable in the set. A special holiday DVD called “Arctic Antics” will release in time of the holidays this fall.

    Any word on the 70’s series release?

    • Doug Williams
      May 2, 2016 at 12:09 am

      I think there was a hiatus on Gumby during the 70’s so the series goes straight from the 60’s to the 80’s

    • Romano Anthony Brown

      There is no 1970’s episodes cause when you go to episodes it only says 1950 1960 180 190

    • Gumby World

      No Gumby episodes were produced in the 1970s. Art Clokey spent that decade creating art films. The next new batch of episodes was released in the 1980s.

    My burning question is will there be a prickle, goo, or Minga bendable figure released with the movie and 80’s sets?

    • Gumby World
      May 4, 2016 at 9:35 am

      Those bendable characters will probably appear in the ’80s DVD sets.

    Mine is on order at B&N, the same day I learned of these!! Very cool and definitive sets– the essential Gumby as both cartoon and toy figure. Can’t wait to see the new retro Gumby in this package!

    When will the 60s volume 2 come out this summer? We’re in the middle of summer, and it’s still not out.

    According to Gumby: The Movie’s article on Wikipedia, it said that NCircle Entertainment will release the original 90 minute version of Gumby: The Movie in Early 2017. Is that correct?

    • Gumby World
      October 16, 2016 at 11:15 am

      Yes. It is still on schedule to release in early 2017. We don’t know the exact date yet.

    I hope it is coming soon. I am looking forward to buying the movie and the entire 1980s series on DVD. It is no longer early 2017.

    • Gumby World

      The Gumby Movie is now slated to release on September 5, 2017. NCircle has pushed the ’80s release to a later day, probably in 2018.

  18. Jack B.
    May 8, 2017 at 9:42 am

    It’s probably too early for an exact date, but will either the movie or one of the 80’s sets be releasing anytime soon?

    • Gumby World
      July 1, 2017 at 11:17 am

      The Gumby Movie will be out September 5, while the 1980’s series will now be ready in 2018.

  19. Ashley
    September 19, 2017 at 4:46 pm

    I am looking to owning all of the 1980s episodes on dvd. I have bought the 50s and 60s sets and wish to complete the series.

    • Gumby World
      September 30, 2017 at 5:31 pm

      NCircle Entertainment hasn’t set release dates for the ’80s sets yet. They will likely be out in 2018. Please check back for more details.
