Episode Summary

Rain Spirits / The Kachinas / Toying Around
Rain Spirits: While Gumby and Pokey are swimming one day, a misplaced Hopi falls out of the sky, inquiring about rain spirits. They lead him back to his book, where they plant corn and Pokey is butted by a goat for not believing in rain spirits. They all go out and watch the Kachinas wander around the sky for a bit before Sky King Kachina meets Rain Cloud Kachina so that Corn Maiden Kachina can make the corn come up strong and sweet, which pleases the little Hopi, since now he doesn't have to starve. The Kachinas: Taking place somewhere between the huge time gaps in Rain Spirits, this story begins with Gumby, Pokey, and the little Hopi walking straight up a sheer cliff to visit the Kachinas and beg them for rain. They concede, but on one condition: they must lay their first ear of corn on a high rock. We go through the corn growing footage again, only this time the Hopi takes an ear of corn and walks straight up a sheer cliff to set it on the high rock. Gumby and Pokey help harvest the corn, then they go and play in the Hopi's swimming pool. Pokey gets knocked in by the goat and Goat Spanking Kachina gives him a severe beating for his disobedience. Toying Around: For the first three hours of this cartoon, Gumby and Pokey stand on their heads so they can look at a doll that's standing on its head. Shortly afterward, they witness a horrible accident where a toy truck smashes down a tower of blocks. Being the kind souls they are, Gumby and Pokey spontaneously decide to rebuild it. Unfortunately, it's not to their liking, so they grab a jeep and drive through a tunnel. Then, they load up their dump truck with blocks and drive them back through the tunnel. Finally, they take their trainload of blocks back to the tower and build it really, really high. Hooray! They decide to celebrate by blowing up a balloon. When Pokey starts drifting away with it, Gumby rescues him by firing a toy harpoon at the balloon. Pokey lands in a horn and Gumby squeezes him out.moreless
