Episode Summary

EDIT
Pokey's Price / Son of Liberty / Gumby Crosses the Delaware
AIRED:
Pokey's Price: A pilgrim boy escapes from his book about the Plymouth colony and steals Gumby's apple. Gumby and Pokey pursue him back into the book and tackle him, but decide to go easy on him, what with how his family is starving to death. Pokey discovers a sinkhole where two baskets of corn are buried. The colony is saved from starvation, and the boys are ready to get a quick drink, when some Native Americans arrive, demanding payment for the corn stolen from them, which they'd been saving to plant next season. They decide to settle for Pokey, and they take him home with them, much to Gumby's discontent. Gumby rallies the pilgrims and they go into the Native Americans' camp, shoot off a few rounds, and trade Pokey for three hunting knives and some glass beads. And that's the story of the first Thanksgiving. Son of Liberty: While cavorting around with Gumby one day, Pokey stumbles into a book about the American Revolution. He overhears General Cage's plans to move some British troops around. Knowing how badly Paul Revere, John Hancock, and Samuel Adams screwed up when left to their own devices, Gumby and Pokey decide to warn Paul Revere about Cage's plans, but not before fighting off about a dozen British guards in the toy store. When they smash his jeep and his airplane, Gumby fetches his groobee, which makes quick work of them. They finally meet up with Paul Revere, who instantly trusts them and makes Gumby and honorary Son of Liberty. The Revolutionary War starts about five seconds later. Gumby Crosses the Delaware: Pokey calls Gumby for help when a soldier from the revolutionary army arrives at his hamburger stand asking for free food. After assuring Pokey that he's not a beatnik, Gumby whips up an order to go that'll feed Washington's army. Of course, this wouldn't be a Gumby cartoon if Washington didn't proceed to send Pokey to Trenton as a spy so they can communicate via Walkie Talkie to see what's going on as they make their famous attack. Unfortunately, Pokey is captured by opposing soldiers, who, impressed by the novelty of a talking horse, take him before their general to be the army's mascot. Gumby chooses to call when Pokey's right in front of the general. Pokey tries his best to shut him up, but Gumby insists on saying everything he knows about what Washington's doing. Fortunately, the general doesn't believe a word he says. Gumby and Pokey proceed to do nothing useful whatsoever until the cartoon is over.moreless
