Episode Summary

EDIT
Dragon Witch / Treasure for Henry / Pilgrims on the Rock
AIRED:
Dragon Witch: It's the further adventures of Henry and Rodgy. Henry's dressed up in a cross between cowboy and knight-errant costumes which, as Rodgy explains several thousand times in the next four minutes, is daffy. When Henry hears cries of distress from the book "The Bad Witch", he leaps to the rescue. Seems the witch hasn't been feeding her dragon, and he's preparing to eat her to make up for it. Since it's obviously none of his business, Henry stands up to the dragon, only to be chased away by some firey blasts. Rodgy suggests leaving them to settle their own labor dispute, but Henry has an idea. He lassoes the dragon's tail and ties it to a tree, then bravely sends Rodgy out as a decoy. The dragon chases after roger until he reaches the end of his rope, then he trips and falls over. Of course, this means the dragon is defeated, so Henry rescues the witch, who is really grateful and everything. He crosses out the word "Bad" and writes "Good" on the title of the book. Treasure for Henry: Gumby will not be here today. Instead, please enjoy Henry the living teddy bear and his friend Rodgy the clay bird. They're hungry, and they're sick of honey and bird seed (respectively). So, they decide to nip into a book, rob a pirate ship, and buy all the cheeseburgers and milkshakes they want. Unfortunately, the pirates catch them and make them walk the plank. Before they get tossed into the drink, a non-pirate ship arrives and starts up a little war with the pirate ship. Henry decides to help get the pirates captured and chops down the mast while Rodgy gets mistaken for a cannonball and fired at the other ship. All this leads vaguely to the pirates' defeat, so Henry and Rodgy are generously rewarded with a lifetime supply of honey and bird seed (respectively). Cue the muted trumpets and let's get out of here. Pilgrims on the Rock: Coming home from shopping for Thanksgiving dinner, Gumby and Pokey run across a Pilgrim who fell out of his book. They return him safely to the Mayflower and proceed to go through your basic "The Story of Thanksgiving" bit. They backtrack a few chapters to meet King James in person, but they're almost instantly imprisoned for their ideas about giving people the right to worship and all. Fortunately, they can just walk through a wall and go forward to the Mayflower again. The storm is so bad that the ship threatens to crack in half, so Gumby fixes it before going back to reality. Pokey doesn't learn a darned thing.moreless

      • Henry: Well, Rodgy, how do I look?
        Rodgy: Sheesh! Either you're a daffy knight or a daffy cowboy.
        Henry: Well, I'm a little of both. Besides, the helmet is too hot and heavy.
        Rodgy: You're just plain daffy!

      • Clay Cat: I'm a puddy tat.

        It is a reference to the word in Tweety's trademark phrase.

        GRUB GRABBER GUMBY
        The dream sequence, though PREDATING Kubrick's classic 1971 flick, is similiar in the force-feeding bit to CLOCKWORK ORANGE-MR.STUFF. The pie is the old homespun plot device of someone putting their pies out on the windowsill (served as the bases for Yogi Bear's first short)

        TREASURE FOR HENRY:
        Pirates, of course.

        WHO'S WHAT
        Cool Jazz is heard through a bopping sax, a la Paul Desmond of Dave Brubeck Quartet TAKE FIVE (1960) fame.
