In this offshoot of the 1950s "claymation" cartoon series, the crazy Blockheads threaten to ruin Gumby's benefit concert by replacing the entire city of Clokeytown with robots.
Art Clokey and Dal McKennon's last film.
Gumby robot? Hey! That's our barn on the screen. And my car!
Tara: Yeah, there's a robot at your barn that looks exactly like you. And the monitor is showing you what it sees.
When the music video for the Clayboys is being filmed, Pokey is shown to walk up and stand beside Lucky watching the monitor. In a cut shot showing the audience, Pokey is shown standing next to the hay bales. In the next shot, he's back beside Lucky.
Dal McKennon being credited as Charles Farrington is an inside joke, as this is Art Clokey's middle and last birth name.
In the original version, Goo shoots one of her clay balls at the robotic Gumby, when shown on the monitor in the lab, one of the Blockheads smacks the other one in the head. This scene is cut on the Director's cut DVD, but is retained on the deleted scenes on the disc. This scene remains intact on the Blu-ray Disc release and streaming prints.
