All About Gumby
I don’t know if I was the only one, but I watched Gumby a lot as a child. Maybe I saw so much of it because it came of PBS in the mornings and I didn’t have cable TV until I was 15. There were a lot of old TV shows that I watched that almost no one knows about now, for example Ghost Writer.
Anyhow, Gumby was a show that had a reoccurring gimmick where Gumby or Pokey would stumble into a random book, at which point they would walk into it like it was made of nothing, and experience the book contents as a tangible reality. However neither Gumby, Pokey, Minga or Danali would ever read the title of the book and would get stuck and confused in that world. I thought it would be funny to just let the waltz into a book that would be traumatic for a child.
