The Dumb Race was an event that occurred in "The Goons". It was held at The Park and the participants were Gumball, Darwin, Anais, Richard, Rocky, Anton, Banana Joe, Idaho, Marvin, and Tobias. Anyone who took off their blindfolds during the race was considered disqualified and the participant that ran the farthest without stopping won.

Race Results and EliminationEdit

10th: Idaho - Bumped into a golf ball, which he mistook for his mother, and was then hit by a golf club, sending him airborne.

9th: Banana Joe - Ran through a chain link fence and was sliced in the process.

8th: Anton - Ran into a lake and was eaten by geese.

7th: Rocky - Hit his head on a low branch and fell and trampled by Richard.

6th: Richard - Accidentally picked up Larry, who was about to propose to Karen, causing him to do some deep thinking, letting Larry down and taking off his blindfold in the process.

4th/5th (Tied): Gumball and Anais - Forfeited at exactly the same time, pulling off their blindfold after they reached a crowded road.

3rd: Marvin - Pulled off his blindfold after accidentally running over Gumball and Anais.

Unknown (1st or 2nd): Darwin and Tobias - It's unclear whether either Darwin or Tobias won, but the former hadn't taken off his blindfold and he ran circling a tree. The latter grabbed balloons early on and shouted, "I'm not winning," and floated away.


  • In the hospital following the race, Richard says that 2 adults were injured (himself and Rocky). But Richard was never injured, so Rocky was the only adult to be injured. It is possible that he meant that he was injured emotionally throughout his deep thinking.
  • Before Idaho ran in to the golf ball, he was wearing a black blindfold, the color then changed to white.
