Bob Burden comic
"Now, Gumby was always at least a little bit surreal – he was a boy made out of clay whose best friend was a talking horse, and he got in and out of trouble by changing his shape – but Burden’s brand of surrealism is not quite the same as that of Art Clokey, who invented Gumby back in the ‘50s. So if there are any grumpy old Gumby purists out there, they might not like this. Anyone with vaguer memories of Gumby, or no knowledge of him at all, though, will be enchanted".

Flaming Carrot, a magnificent creation of the legendary man known as Bob Burden is best renown for his solo series, Flaming Carrot Comics which was first published by Aardvark-Vanaheim. Of course like all good things, things wouldn't last and after a five issue run the title was given to Renegade (Flaming Carrot Comics) and despite that previous insinuation at the beginning of this sentence the series was as good as ever, continuing all the way up until the seventeenth issue. Finally it made it's final transition of publishers unto Dark Horse (Flaming Carrot Comics) where it remained until its thirty-first issue. The series was partially collected by Dark Horse (Flaming Carrot Comics Collected Album) and spawned an annual (Flaming Carrot Comics Annual) and later a special, Flaming Carrot Comics Special by Image (under their Desperado imprint) who now have the rights of the comic.
