Gumby

Tries to ROB Convenience Store

... Fails So Hard

9/7/2011 2:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0908-gumby-robbery

What's big, green, and wanted for attempted robbery?

Law enforcement tells TMZ, a man wearing a giant Gumby costume tried to knock over a 7-Eleven in San Diego early this morning -- announcing as he entered, "This is a robbery!"

The clerk behind the counter thought it was a prank -- so to prove he meant business, Gumby reached into his pockets to procure a weapon.

But thanks to his bulky, Halloween-clearance-outlet costume, no weapon was ever produced -- Gumby fumbled for several moments ... but ultimately gave up and beat a hasty, embarrassing retreat.

The video is hilarious -- cops tell TMZ, the man dropped $.26 while bungling around for his gun ... and actually tried to pick it up before taking off.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to Gumby’s arrest. Chances are he is unarmed and completely harmless.

They needed an old person in there. YouTube is filled with videos of seniors beating on robbers. Anyway, someone needed to hit that idiot.

Who is the other guy? He acts as if he is surrounded by people in Gumby costumes all day long. Very strange...

They have another video which shows him being video taped with some friends. It is the same costume and it looks like the same store. and you can see what he looks like cause he took off the top part of the costume. It shouldnt be that hard to find him cause after watching your video it showed the next video to watch said Gumby at 7-11 and it is the same costume and it is a longer video but it doesnt show him holding the place up so he had to have been there before and he was even taking pic with people in the store. I think this guy is an idiot for wearing that costume and taping himself without the mask part of the costume. What an idiot
