Gumby/Pillsbury Doughboy Encounter was in the Stars!
It's only appropriately cosmic that Gumby should meet the Pillsbury Doughboy, as he did at San Diego Comic-Con this year thanks to Doughboy's one-man entourage, Ken Thomas.
Why, you crazy bastard, you may ask?
Because lest I remind you that the Doughboy was designed/created by the late Martin Nodell (who used to be a Comic-Con regular). Nodell also created the original Green Lantern and Lantern's color is green like Gumby. Green Lantern was the hot character at this year's Comic-Con thanks to the impending motion picture.
So there, the meeting was cosmic and inevitable.
Also, little known fact, if you poke Gumby in the pupik, he giggles, too! Heeheeeheeeheeeheeee!
