Episode Summary

EDIT
Lion Drive / The Eggs and Trixie / Egg Trouble
AIRED:
Lion Drive: When Gumby and Pokey met Richard the lion, their adventures occurred before returning to the zoo. Though there's a bit about Gumby getting stuck on a spinning record and being molded like he was on a potters wheel and another bit about Richard drinking an entire fountain of water, the big attraction here is when they happen upon a car and Richard decides he wants to drive it. Of course, since he's never driven before, this leads to "hilariously" dangerous driving stunts, ending with them crashing into an elevator shaft in a building and coming out on the top floor, only to fly past an airplane. The Eggs and Trixie: Gumby's learning about dinosaurs in school. When the teacher asks the students to picture themselves in the age of the dinosaurs, Gumby's imagination gets the better of him, and he's actually taken back in time. Whoops. He meets a young triceratops named Trixie who's very sad because her mother never takes care of her eggs and her siblings are constantly being killed before birth. To prove her point, Trixie takes Gumby to visit the nest, where some dinosaur is casually munching on the eggs, and Gumby shoos it away. They decide to build a wall around the nest, which proves ineffective when a brontosaurus reaches in, grabs an egg, and starts playing catch with it. Gumby gets another brontosaurus to help them get the egg back. His good deed done, Gumby is returned to the present. Or else he just wakes up. Egg Trouble: Gumby's still helping Trixie the Triceratops mind her nest of eggs. Unfortunately, a volcano starts hurling rock at them, and a few eggs are damaged. As if that weren't bad enough, a large predator decides to attack; starting a stampede of herbivores, and the entire nest is destroyed. Fortunately, Gumby hid two of the eggs in another dimension, so he and Trixie take them back to the toy store and stick 'em in an oven to incubate them. While they go play, Pokey happens along just in time for the babies to be born and start chasing him around.moreless
