Episode Summary

In a Fix / The Zoops / Even Steven
In a Fix: Gumby and Pokey are playing near a cement mixer one day, and wouldn't you know it, Gumby falls in and gets all mixed up. After Pokey remolds him, Gumby gets a bunch of Lincoln logs and uses them to build a cage around Pokey. Suddenly, he realizes that he's trapped Pokey in a cage. (That was pretty easy to avoid.) He must put things right, so he tries lifting weights to build the muscle tone to break the cage apart, but the "gumbells" fall apart. He eventually fires a cannon into the cage, smashing Pokey free and nearly destroying him in the process. The Zoops: To earn some money to get his mom a gift, Gumby's decided to become an entrepreneur in the fastest-growing industry in the world: Watermelon raising. To give his venture a kick-start, he trades a watermelon to a wandering wizard for some magic potion. Little does he know that the potion won't, as he believes, make his melons grow better or faster but, in actuality, turns them into zoops. The important thing is that he decides to capture them and sell them to the zoo. After he and Pokey get caught in their own net, we're left to assume that the project was successful, because now the zoo has a cage full of zoops and Gumby and Pokey are off to an ice cream store to eat the profits. Unfortunately, the zoops get out of hand, and the zoo keeper decides to use a hose on them. They turn back into watermelons. Since this is vaguely Gumby's fault, the zoo keeper makes Gumby and Pokey clean out the animal cages. Even Stevens: Gumby and Pokey are on vacation, and the Blockheads keep tricking them into taking their money away.moreless
