5.0 out of 5 starsFinally! The 'red eye Gumbys' in all their original, uncut glory with original soundtracks... masterpiece theater for children
This version of the original series represents the end of a long and winding road of releases of Gumby's adventures back where it belongs; as it was originally shown in the 50s. Even when I first saw them as a boy in the 60s, each episode had, unfortunately, been split into two parts to accommodate network breaks for commercials. Still, these first episodes had a huge impact on me as a boy; I credit them with helping to make me an avid reader. They were magical, whimsical fun, and I never tired of watching them over and over again.

The first attempt to release these episodes on home video were the Family Home Entertainment VHS tapes in the 70s. These were the same versions I saw in the 60s (split into two parts), but were incomplete. However, these were the only versions you could find with the original soundtracks for decades.

After that, Clokey and Premavision lost the rights to the original soundtracks (copyrights expire), and couldn't afford to restore them, so when Rhino put out the DVD set of what they called "The Complete Gumby" (it wasn't), they had to re-do the soundtracks with synthesizers. This was better than not having them at all, but a lot of fans were disappointed. (As a consolation prize, Rhino provided many cool extras on that set, like Clokey's wild short called "Mandala" which if you haven't seen it, you owe it yourself to check out on youtube).

Clokey and his son kept struggling to get his original vision restored, and I don't know the story of how the copyrights to the original soundtracks were secured, but the first time I came across them was on the Kabillion youtube channel a few years ago. So all told, it took about six decades for the first season, or the "red eye Gumbys," as they are commonly referred to by fans, to be seen by a new generation of children as they were originally intended.

Tonight I accidentally discovered them here on amazon, and I couldn't be more pleased. Here these joyously surreal and imaginative flights of Clokey's fancy will get wide distribution, and hopefully win an enthusiastic viewership. If you happen to be Christian, this is particularly wholesome, educational, and stimulating entertainment for your children. These Gumby adventures have left an indelible imprint on my consciousness, and there is really nothing else out there quite like them.

5.0 out of 5 starsA classic!
Fond childhood memories. Here it is six decades later and I'm still enjoying the show! Something timeless about them. I find that most anything that takes me out of present day and transports me back to "the good old days" is welcome in my life, and nothing does that better than early television and old time radio. Now that I am older, I can't help but marvel at the amount of work, ingenuity and patience that went into creating these Gumby episodes. Thrilled they're still around to be enjoyed by future generations. Good, clean fun!

5.0 out of 5 starsSo glad I can watch this whenever I want!
This show is a classic, and it's amazing how the quality holds up to this day! I keep forgetting this series is over 60 years old because of how well this was remastered. This is one of my favorite shows, so I bought the box sets in a heartbeat. Now that the series is on Prime, I can watch it anywhere and that makes me so happy!
