EDIT
Big Eye / Lawn Party / Who's What?
AIRED:
Big Eye: Gumby's found a new friend inside his blood steam! He's a hemoglobin, and his name is Fred! Unfortunately, all is not well in blood land, as Gumby can see through his microscope. And so, he and Pokey shrink themselves down and visit the microbes on their little slide. It seems the scientist germs are stealing all of the oxygen from the hemoglobin to use as fuel for their rocket ship! Gumby finds out that the scientist germs are interested in firing a rocket up to study the giant eye in the sky. Well, the hemoglobin are more than happy to help, now that they know what it's for. It takes Pokey forever to realize that the big eye they're talking about was Gumby watching them through the microscope, and Gumby vows never to use a microscope again. Lawn Party: Pokey calls Gumby in from his yard work to watch the "animated people". What follows is a strange short feature about people who act like they're in a Gumby cartoon. Real, live people. In fact, there's a bunch of stop-motion effects to enhance the experience. It begins with people climbing out of the trunk of a car and going about their business. One of them sets up a picnic while another one puts on some skis and stands behind a lawn mower, which drags him around as it mows. Unfortunately, the lawnmower gets hopelessly out of control and chases him and a woman up a tree. It's up to the picnicking fellow to play torero with the rampant machine, and throws a blanket on it to make it vanish. Gumby is thrilled by the piece, and tries to reproduce the experiment by putting on some skis and standing behind his lawn mower. Unfortunately, this leads to the destruction of the whole world, a grim reminder that we must never trust animated people. Who's What?: This cautionary tale about the dangers inherent in dabbling with the forces of nature begins with a group of insane dolls playing Hearts. Somewhere else, Henry the Anti-Social Teddy Bear has unwittingly created life in the form of a small clay bird named Rodgy. As Rodgy searches for his identity and purpose in life, Henry goes on to mold a cat, refusing to believe that his creations have actually come to life, preferring, perhaps, to think that he's just lost his mind or something innocent like that. He holds this conviction even as the cat tries to eat Rodgy and the two of them loudly insist that they're living things. Unfortunately, Henry only really appreciates the repercussions of his actions when he finishes his masterpiece, a giant lion which tries to eat him. The clay creatures chase themselves around and around a box until they melt into a river of clay.moreless
