Gumby Robbery, 2011
Claymation is a dying art, but the most famous Claymation character of all time, Art Clokey’s bendy green Gumby, still has his fans. First and foremost - the armed robber who donned a full-body Gumby costume to rob a Rancho Penasquitos, Calif. 7-Eleven convenience store. This is probably one of the worst robberies we’ve ever heard of. The man threatened the counterman with a gun but couldn’t manage to actually pull it out before panicking and fleeing the scene, dropping 27 cents in change. The poor worker didn’t even know who Gumby was and was too flabbergasted to call the police.
