Classic seals deal with Premavision on Gumby
Classic Media has finalized a long-term joint venture with Premavision to manage all rights to the Gumby characters, from Pokey to Blockhead to the big clay guy himself. The two companies are now developing a straight-to-video Gumby feature set for a 2008 release and a new Gumby TV series. International film, video, digital media and promotional rights are included in the deal, including all 223 episodes of the classic claymation series and 1995's "Gumby: The Movie." Creator Art Clokey's Clokey Productions will produce all future projects.
