Here's one of those on This Site-as mentioned-just go to Gumby-to Toying Around
During the early episodes Mr.Clokey experimented as before with general pantomime activitie sin a toy store. This was what the first several, the "Moon Trip"'s were, with here our hero skaitng up painting the title with "Gumby in"..then next title card:.. Why, "Toying Around". A ship goes up, as EMI Capitol composers Phil Green and according to ASCAP.COM Ephram Lisfey's standard "Windlass and Cpastam" sea tune often heard elsewhere is heard. Suddenly a face pops up, and yep, it's GUmby who then is revealed not to be a Gulliver, leaving us viewers gullibe. but just amazed. Going into the main part of the toy room, the clay guy then turns upside as me, Pokey, goes for the first time in the epsiode in, and [as described by "historians" Michaelson and Kaplan in 1985's "Gumby" book] in a standoffish fashion turns his own head upside down! Pokey & GUmby then go oin a delivery truck only Pokey drives the truck too fast toward a tower of building blocks with Gumby not yet in there, as the latter waves his arms to stop before getting bowled over literally..they can change places but Pokey gets knocked over.. only for Gumby to pick up him and they both build a tower, Gumby giving Pokey a balloon which carries him away. Gumby then has to get the horse down, into a silly bunch of horns that he blows the orange horse out and they both walk into a catchers close.
It's a mechanically activated baseball pitcher that they leave to a car place. Car City, here they come. Beautifully set up with excellent music and design, it shows a great view of the design that went into these shows with the characters getting involved with cars and a monorail. Pokey again has to be saved from something ..a monorail this time! Fortunately, as that often played circus tune used in the old theatrical catroon and live short subject era and etc. revived by legendary crooner Bing Crosby as "Spring is the Loveliest Night of the Year}", played , Gumby on a fourt go round, so to speak, rides with Pokey sand again for the 5th pop with with the monorail bearing the sign THE END.
Odd and quite unique set up, with in the first half mostly EMI PHOTOPLAY stock cues, and we've got a SAM FOX, a couple of other libaries cues and some whose composers I can;t entirely identify. The "The End" special graphic had been used for these till the sdtand end appeard. Art Clokey's other series "Davey and Goliath" had end titles, only a few Gumbys seem to have them survive [Davey's end titles disappeared in the 80s..]
