Gumby Birthday Marathon Celebrates 60 Years Of Flexible Fun

It's party time, Gumby!

The lovable, green, bendy character officially turns 60 on Thursday, Jan. 29, and Teletoon Retro is celebrating with a marathon starting at 6 p.m. ET/PT, according to a news release.

The marathon will reunite viewers with Gumby, his pony pal Pokey and, of course, the villainous Blockheads.

Gumby has been with us a long time, so we only thought it fitting to honour him the best way we could.
