Bob Burden and Art Adams won the 1988 Eisner Award for Best Single Issue/Single Story for their work on this issue.

The following quote is from a review by Andrew Wheeler, dated April 17, 2008, on the Comic Mix website.

"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".
