Episode Summary

Motor Madness / Weight and See / Mystic Magic
Motor Madness: Gumby and Pokey enter a go-kart race with a $500 prize to whoever can come in ahead of the neighborhood's rich jerk, Reggie Van Snoot. The race is going swell, but no sooner does Gumby mention that he made the racers himself than they fall apart. Gumby makes a makeshift kart out of a motor, four wheels, and Pokey, which somehow or other helps them beat the evil rich kid. Weight and See: Gumby and Pokey stumble upon a fortune-telling machine. All you do is stand on it to determine your weight in order to learn your future. Mystic Magic: Prickle really wants to be an artist, but it takes too long to get any sort of talent, so he resigns himself to be just a plain old dinosaur. While at the museum, he's stopped by a man on the run, who forces an amulet into his possession with the promise that it'll turn anything into a work of art. He tests it on one of the sculptures in the museum, which turns it into a, umm, different sculpture. He picks it up to show to Gumby and is stopped by a security guard, who "accidentally" gets turned into another sculpture. He tries to throw it out, but the trash can turns into a statue. He explains his dire predicament to Gumby and demonstrates it on Goo. Gumby tries to take the dangerous thing from him, and he ends up becoming a work of art too. Pokey suggests touching the sculptures with the amulet again, which restores them to life, hooray! Gumby notes that using the amulet is an art, and Prickle turns him back into a sculpture to punish him for the terrible pun.moreless
