Gumby – The Useless Green Figure with the Sidekick Talking Pony

by Daniel Haim

And I want to take this moment to ask you – if you grew up in the 80s you should know Gumby. I didn’t grow up in the 80s, yet I still ask what the hell was Gumby’s purpose in life. And on top of that I also want to know why does he have a sidekick talking Pony? Anyone? But what I really wonder is why is the Pony’s name Pokey. I just asked my friend if she knew Gumby. She said “It was a show, it was like Sponge Bob”. I don’t think so. “Awww.. Everyone loved Gumby.” she added, I don’t think so either.

You kids today have it all.
