Episode Summary

EDIT
A Lovely Bunch of Coconuts / All Broken Up / Rodeo King
AIRED:
A Lovely Bunch of Coconuts: Gumby's gonna grow coconuts wherever he darned well pleases, no matter what their native climate is supposed to be! Or, at least, so he thinks. Unfortunately, three months into his coconut-growing endeavor, all he's got to show for it is a field of dead coconut trees. Fortunately, a very plot-specific ad for a miracle-grow formula catches his attention, so he and Pokey take their go-karts to the home of a Colonel Dixieman, who falls instantly in love with their wheels. Gumby generously gives him Pokey's kart in exchange for some coconut-growing juice. The man drives all around the neighborhood in the go-kart, making no attempts to stay on any sort of road. His reign of terror ends, appropriately enough, in Gumby's coconut grove, where the potion has had the unexpected side effect of making watermelons grow from the trees. Bottom line: Pokey gets his go-kart back. All Broken Up: Prickle and Goo are practicing their experimental "modern music" show, where Prickle makes a noise and Goo molds herself into what the noise "looks like". Unfortunately, when they perform the piece in concert, the Blockheads sneak up and play their gong, which makes Goo explode into chunks. Prickle gathers her up and takes her to Gumby's lab, where he reassembles her with his deus ex machina. Unfortunately, the Blockheads show up with their gong again, so Gumby directs his machine at them, which makes them explode into chunks. Unfortunately, Goo has exploded again, and it's just a real pain. The Rodeo King: Pokey loves watching the Buster Bronc show! In fact, he loves it so much that he believes he's Buster Bronc, a legendary rodeo horse of some sort, and proceeds to destroy things. Fortunately, Prickle has taken up quackery, and promises to cure Pokey of his delusion. When destroying the TV and hypnosis have no effect, they decide to enter Pokey into a rodeo, hoping to prove to him that he's not really a rodeo horse. Unfortunately, it turns out that he's a darned good rodeo horse. Whoda thunk it? Pokey gives up his newfound identity when he realizes that he doesn't like all of the attention the media pays him.moreless
