Episode Guide

  • Turnip Trap / Indian Challenge / Gold Rush Gumby
    Turnip Trap: Prickle's got a secret, evidenced by the way he chants, "I've got a secret!" over and over as the cartoon opens. Seems he's remembered his birthday wish and he must prepare for it to come true. He starts building a giant cage in the back yard. Gumby, Pokey, and Goo, worried about Prickle's strange behavior, offer to help, and accidentally get built into the cage with no way out. (That was pretty easy to avoid.) Prickle goes back inside to wait for his wish to come true as his friends wonder how they'll get out. Along comes a friendly farmer, who offers to dump his turnips into the cage until Gumby and friends can climb out the top of the cage on the turnips. In an amazing blend of luck and planning, Prickle goes outside to find his wish has come true; he has a giant cage full of turnips. Indian Challenge: Some Native Americans are after Prospector Pete for all of the tales he's told about killing their people. He must face Old Joe, the champion of their tribe. He's scared, what with how they were all a bunch of tall tales, so Gumby and Pokey agree to spy on the tribe and see what he's up against. Wouldn't you know it, Old Joe's just a big blowhard too. And so, Pete and Joe enter a tall tale contest where the loser has to stop telling stories. Gold Rush Gumby: Gumby's lookin' for gold deep in the Pesky Indian Reservation with Pokey and Nopey. When he strikes gold, he's captured by the Peskies. Normally they're a friendly people, but the chief's in a bad mood today, so they're gonna have to get burned to death. Gumby offers to help the chief, whose ailment comes from a toothache. Gumby has no idea about dentistry, so he just pulls it out. Everyone laughs at the gap where the chief's tooth was, so Gumby makes a gold one with the tooth-making kit he brought along.moreless
  • Grub Grabber Gumby / Prickle Turns Artist / Wishful Thinking
    Grub Grabber Gumby: Gumby is really hungry, and he starts by eating almost all the cookies. Then he ate Pokey's sandwich and Mrs. Applebee's pie. He falls asleep and dreamt that he was on a eating spree. Prickle Turns Artist: Goo happens by Prickle's crate-building store, and he shows her how he gets Gumby's groobee to build boxes around his customers' prized possessions, like one lady's rare Ming Ding vase. Unfortunately, the process involves painting a face on the object (the groobee only builds boxes around animals), but fortunately, his customers don't notice. Goo suspects that there's going to be trouble, so she goes to get Gumby. Turns out it's unnecessary; by the time Prickle's customers start complaining about how he's defaced their goods, some stupid art critic has decided that Prickle's work is priceless, so Prickle makes a fortune drawing faces on stuff. Wishful Thinking: It's Prickle's birthday, and his friends encourage him to make a wish before blowing out his candles. Flash forward several days, where Prickle has locked himself away from his friends, waiting for his wish to come true, convinced that his friends are going to trick him into telling his wish so that he won't get it. Ironically enough, Gumby and friends decide that the only way to get him to snap out of it is if they trick him into telling them his wish so they can make it come true. They try opening a wish booth, where customers tell their wishes and get them granted, but it doesn't work. Next, they give him a card where he can write his wish down so he doesn't forget it, but he doesn't fall for it. At last, they nail a sheet to the wall of Prickle's room, get on Pokey's back, and bash through the wall to Prickle's room, where they get covered with the sheet and tell Prickle that they are a wish spirit who has arrived to grant his wish. Sometimes the most complicated ideas work the best, and Prickle agrees to tell the spirit his wish. Only problem is, he forgot it.moreless
  • 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
  • Stuck on Books / Gabby Auntie / Foxy Box
    Stuck on Books: Nopey refuses to follow Gumby and Pokey into a book to have an adventure because of a fear of being stuck in the book. When he won't listen as Gumby insists that it's safe, Pokey gets impatient with the little puppy and just shoves him in. They're somewhat baffled when the dog is stuck halfway and refuses to come out when the pull. Gumby investigates and finds that Nopey refuses to let go of the branch of a tree he's found in the book. Of course, now that they got the little baby in, he refuses to go out, so they have to trick him with a game of fetch. Nopey's fears are cured (either that or he doesn't understand a word anyone says and just answers "no" to Gumby's "Are you afraid anymore?" because that's the only word he ever says). Gabby Auntie: Gumby and Pokey are visiting with Gumby's ridiculously dull, talkative Aunt Gumbitty one day. When Pokey nods off, his natural defenses kick in to save him from the conversationalist, and he sleep walks out to the car and drives off. Gumby and his aunt give chase to keep him from destroying himself and others. When Gumbitty's car gets stuck, Gumby "borrows" someone's hovercraft to continue pursuit. He accidentally crashes into a fence, which attaches to the craft, giving it wings and allowing Gumby to reach Pokey. The whole thing reminds Gumby's aunt of a friend of hers who would nod off in the middle of a conversation and starts to wax poetic about it. Meanwhile, Pokey starts to nod off again. Foxy Box: Gumby receives a mysterious box in the mail. He opens its tiny door up and pulls out a toy tractor, which is so much fun, until it runs around on its own and tills the living room floor, so he turns it upside-down until it dies. Then he pulls out a plane, which flies around trying to destroy him. He jumps into the box, where he finds a toy train and harasses it for a bit before the box falls off the table and shatters into a million pieces.moreless
  • Dog Catchers / A Bone for Nopey / Gumby Baby-Sits
    Dog Catchers: Nopey the nay saying puppy doesn't understand why his skateboard won't go and takes it in to Prickle's skateboard repair shop. Rather than teach Nopey how a skateboard should be used, Prickle attaches a motor to the skateboard, because that way he gets paid more. This turns out to be a mistake, as the dog and his motorized skateboard run horribly amok, mowing people down and smashing things! Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and a dogcatcher with no speaking role run a merry chase around the toy store and are foiled by the puppy at every turn. A Bone for Nopey: Nopey loves burying bones so much that Gumby decides to take him to Dinosaur Bone Park for some good old-fashioned vandalism. They find an appropriately large femur decorating the park and they start digging a hole to put it in. Unfortunately, the giant fossil refuses to budge, so Gumby gets Pokey, Prickle, and Goo and an array of toy trains to push it in. Their momentum carries them straight into the hole, and Nopey happily buries them alive. Gumby Baby-Sits: Gumby must babysit a little brat with an attitude. He forced Gumby to go outside. And then he tells Gumby what to do instead.moreless
  • Puppy Talk / Puppy Dog School / Dopey Nopey
    Puppy Talk: Gumby and Pokey pass a dog school where dogs are taught to speak English and they watch as a little puppy named Nopey gets thrown out because all he can say is "no". They take pity on him and try to befriend him. Relations are difficult at first, because the dog returns all of their friendly advances with a firm "no". Then a dog catcher shows up to haul Nopey off because, presumably, he's a stray dog who just happened to be going to dog school. Gumby very easily fools the dog catcher ("Are you the dog who only says no?" "No." "See? He's not the one you're looking for.") and Gumby and Pokey and Nopey become friends forever. Puppy Dog School: Tired of hearing Nopey say "no", Prickle hires a tutor to teach how to say new words. Things doesn't turn out well, until he found out that Nopey can say "no" in different country languages. Dopey Nopey: One day, a boy lost his glasses. Pokey found them and decides to try them on. He believes that people who wears spectacles are geniuses. Nopey rushes in Gumby's den, and takes the glasses away. Gumby finds out whose glasses belong to. He also informed that all people with glasses are not very smart.moreless
  • This Little Piggy / El Toro / Bully for Gumby
    This Little Piggy: Gumby's grandfather warns Gumby that raising a pig isn't easy, but Gumby's determined to win a prize at the fair next month for his pig, Piggy. He almost immediately goes crying back to his grandfather for help when Piggy won't eat anything. Grandpa suggests giving the pig some exercise, so Gumby gets a treadmill for Piggy. Unfortunately, the motorized walker breaks and starts running away with Piggy, with Gumby in hot pursuit. One month later, the walker arrives with Piggy at the fair, where he wins some cruel sort of joke prize for the skinniest pig at the fair. Gumby returns to the farm, pleased with the prize, but still confused about why Piggy won't eat. Grandfather is horrified to find that Gumby's been feeding Piggy nothing but candy and kindly informs Gumby that pigs eat vegetables. El Toro: Gumby and Goo are standing around happily one day when suddenly a bunch of people run by like they've seen the Tasmanian devil. Something is amiss! Turns out a bull escaped from the local bullfight, and it chases Gumby and Goo up a tree. Prickle is there too, it seems, and he tries to avoid being gored by acting calm. Unfortunately, the bull attacks him anyway, so he joins Goo and Gumby in the tree. Pokey happens along and comments on how ridiculous they look, until he notices the bull, then he climbs the tree too (quite a feat for a horse). They're at a stalemate for a while, until the branch that they're all sitting on suddenly snaps, and they fall to the ground. Just as they're about to receive horrible, bloody death, a torero comes along and scolds the bull for picking on Gumby and friends. For his punishment, the bull doesn't get to be killed in public spectacle. Bully for Gumby: Gumby, Pokey, and Nopey decide to get some apples from Tony Spumoni's push-cart. Unfortunately, they're chased off by a wind-up bull that the Blockheads brought along. With our heroes cowering in fear, the Blockheads come up and steal all of the apples. A whole dollar's worth! It takes Gumby forever to notice the wind-up key on the bull, but when he does, he hatches a plan. When the Blockheads try to repeat their success, Gumby sends a wind-up ape to attack them.moreless

  • A Lovely Bunch of Coconuts / All Broken Up / Rodeo King
    A Lovely Bunch of Coconuts: Gumby's gonna grow coconuts wherever he darned well pleases, no matter what their native climate is supposed to be! Or, at least, so he thinks. Unfortunately, three months into his coconut-growing endeavor, all he's got to show for it is a field of dead coconut trees. Fortunately, a very plot-specific ad for a miracle-grow formula catches his attention, so he and Pokey take their go-karts to the home of a Colonel Dixieman, who falls instantly in love with their wheels. Gumby generously gives him Pokey's kart in exchange for some coconut-growing juice. The man drives all around the neighborhood in the go-kart, making no attempts to stay on any sort of road. His reign of terror ends, appropriately enough, in Gumby's coconut grove, where the potion has had the unexpected side effect of making watermelons grow from the trees. Bottom line: Pokey gets his go-kart back. All Broken Up: Prickle and Goo are practicing their experimental "modern music" show, where Prickle makes a noise and Goo molds herself into what the noise "looks like". Unfortunately, when they perform the piece in concert, the Blockheads sneak up and play their gong, which makes Goo explode into chunks. Prickle gathers her up and takes her to Gumby's lab, where he reassembles her with his deus ex machina. Unfortunately, the Blockheads show up with their gong again, so Gumby directs his machine at them, which makes them explode into chunks. Unfortunately, Goo has exploded again, and it's just a real pain. The Rodeo King: Pokey loves watching the Buster Bronc show! In fact, he loves it so much that he believes he's Buster Bronc, a legendary rodeo horse of some sort, and proceeds to destroy things. Fortunately, Prickle has taken up quackery, and promises to cure Pokey of his delusion. When destroying the TV and hypnosis have no effect, they decide to enter Pokey into a rodeo, hoping to prove to him that he's not really a rodeo horse. Unfortunately, it turns out that he's a darned good rodeo horse. Whoda thunk it? Pokey gives up his newfound identity when he realizes that he doesn't like all of the attention the media pays him.moreless

  • The Moon Boggles / Hot Ice / Pokey Minds the Baby
    The Moon Boggles: There has been a spacecraft sighted flying high above the sky! The Moon Boggles are on the loose, spreading cold everywhere they go! Gumby and Pokey are called in to capture them. Unfortunately, the boggles are more than a match for the duo's silly ruses, and they freeze Gumby and Pokey solid, which results in them having to stay in bed sick for a few days. And so, the day is ruined thanks to Gumby and Pokey! Hot Ice: The moon boggles have made Goo their queen for the day at the zoo, and my, but she goes on a power trip, ordering buckets and buckets of jewels to adorn herself with. Of course, they're only ice, but this fact escapes the notorious Dr. Zveegee, who watches them through his telescope. He sends his robot cage to steal the jewels, and is surprised when it comes back with a bucket of water. When Gumby and Pokey (ready to be her knight and steed) find out about the robbery, they decide to set a trap for Zveegee in one of the zoo cages. When he goes in to start grabbing all of the ice, they close the door on him. Pokey Minds the Baby: Gumby is babysitting Goobalee, largely despite the fact that he isn't there and Pokey's in charge of making sure the gender-neutral toddler doesn't kill itself. Well, he dozes off, and Goobalee is soon crawling out the front door and through the city, putting itself in deadly situations to no end. When Gumby gets back, he scolds Pokey for not doing his job for him and they're soon in hot pursuit of the child. They lose Goobalee at a factory, where the poor baby gets machined away to who-knows-where. Thankfully, the factory just gift-wraps the child and has it mailed back to Gumby.moreless

  • Moon Madness / Shady Lemonade / Piano Rolling Blues
    Moon Madness: Pokey's being attacked by feet with legs attached! Gumby assures him that he's going crazy because of the feet in his head. Prickle's being attacked by feet with legs attached! Gumby tells Prickle that he also has feet in his head, so Gumby has rocks in his head. Goo isn't being attacked by feet with legs attached, so she doesn't understand why Gumby's talking about feet and rocks in peoples' heads. Turns out that no one has feet in their heads, the robot legs from Gumby's go-kart got away, it's a full moon, everyone's in the badlands, and I never should have got out of bed this morning. Shady Lemonade: It's a hot day, so Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo decide to go to the local ice cream shop, lured in by the promise of "All the lemonade you can drink" for ten cents. When they request their second round, the soda jerk refuses, insisting that one glass is all you can drink for ten cents. (Insert muted trumpets here.) They leave the store in a huff only to come across a gentleman whose cat has trapped itself at the top of a tree. When Gumby's fire engine ladder doesn't reach the top, Goo kills the tree with weed killer (since it's obviously too much trouble for her to just fly up there), and the tree wilts, placing the cat back in the gentleman's arms. The man is so happy to have his cat back that he gives Goo ten thousand dollars, which she uses to set up her own ice cream shop next door to the one they went to, and gives away unlimited lemonade for five cents, driving the soda jerk out of business and into abject poverty. Piano Rolling Blues: Previously on Gumby: Prickle narrowly escaped being captured by the evil Dr. Zveegee. Now, tonight's episode. It seems the evil doctor is having problems concentrating on his evil, what with how his neighbor plays the piano all day. So, being an evil brilliant mastermind, he devises a plan to have piano movers remove his neighbor's piano, and then, he will rule the world! The piano movers turn out to be Gumby, Pokey, and Prickle, who find nothing wrong with the fact that the caller asked the piano be given away to someone who wants it or that the owner of the piano isn't at home when they come to get it. Faced with the problem of how to get the piano out the front door, Gumby and friends decide the owner won't mind if they just rip a hole in the wall to get it out. The evil scientist sees that his plan is coming to fruition and notices that the dinosaur that once eluded him is one of the piano movers. So, being an evil brilliant mastermind, he devises a plan to run outside and grab Prickle in broad daylight with two of his friends there. Wackiness ensues as the evil doctor gets stuck on the piano and rolls down a hill. He's locked up for attempted dinosaur-grabbing. Gumby and friends fix Paul Pluck's house.moreless

  • Of Clay and Critters / Tricky Ball / Dragon Daffy
    Of Clay and Critters: It's another one of these cartoons. Okay, while strolling through the desert one day, Gumby, Pokey, and Nopey stumble upon a box. While trying to open the box, they're attacked by Cousin It in a powdered wig and, ultimately, sucked into the box by a one-eyed tentacle. They're turned into umbrellas and they fly away to the forest, where they pursue a weird alien inchworm. It leads them into a brightly colored coffee can, where they are spun around and transformed. Gumby and Pokey become deformed (you know, giant heads with tiny bodies) and Nopey is turned into a hot dog. Tricky Ball: The Toy Store is selling a big pile of "tricky ball". Gumby and Nopey have a hard time playing with them, what with how they morph and stretch and shrink and grow without warning. Dragon Daffy: Prickle isn't allowed into an ice cream store because the soda jerk thinks Prickle is a dragon, and everyone knows that dragons have a tendency to melt ice cream. Naturally, this means that Gumby must go to Dinosaur Land and find Prickle's mother. After being eaten by a Bullysaurus, Gumby finds Prickle's mom, and together they all go harass the soda jerk, who screams and runs away. Gumby and friends loot the store of its ice cream and everyone goes home happy.moreless

  • Tail Tale / Haunted Hot Dog / Tricky Train
    Tail Tale: Gumby invites Pokey to come over and get in his matter transporter. Seems the thing hasn't been working efficiently enough, despite his extensive knowledge of modern physics (evidenced by E=mc"3 written on the blackboard). Pokey eventually concedes, but his tail is swapped with a bunch of flowers in the process. So, both of them get in at the same time and get their body parts mixed up, but his tail vanishes. An alien appears with Pokey's tail attached to his head, corrects Gumby's problem, and just sort of generally fixes everything. Haunted Hot Dog: Gumby and Pokey run out of gas during their Sunday drive down a country road and decide to check an abandoned-looking house for gas. Meanwhile, a dog has stolen some sausages from a butcher shop, and he runs several thousand miles into the country to seek refuge in the same house. They're on a collision course with wackiness! The two parties spend a minute or two scaring each other in a Scooby-Doo style chase sequence before building a fire and sharing the hot dogs. Tricky Train: The toy store has sent Gumby a complete model train set for no particular reason. He sets it up and watches as it drives itself around. Suddenly, Nopey arrives, and the train starts chasing him around. So, Gumby gets out a catapult and starts pitching melons around.moreless

  • Prickle's Problem / A Groobee Fight / The Gumby League
    Prickle's Problem: Prickle is tired of being a common nobody and yearns to make a difference in the world and be loved by all. Fortunately, some woman was stupid enough to set her baby on the sidewalk and let it crawl out into traffic, giving Prickle the perfect opportunity to save it. The story makes newspapers worldwide, and Prickle is flooded with fan mail. Unfortunately, he attracts some undesired attention in the form of Dr. Zveegee, the maddest mad scientist to ever be the laughing stock of the academy. He's not as interested in Prickle's heroism. What with them being extinct and all, and he uses his robot cage to try and catch him. Its first run nets him nothing but a mailbox, but the second run does a bit better, and he catches Pokey. Rather than enjoy what little success he has, he yells at the machine, which prompts it to catch him and take him back to see Gumby and friends. Prickle decides he doesn't want to be famous anymore, which is a lucky thing, because no one cares about him anymore by this time. A Groobee Fight: A police officer offers to haul Gumby away for kidnapping people with his groobee, a giant insect that builds boxes around things. This never quite pans out, since the police officer is himself kidnapped, and it turns out that it was the Blockheads, who have a groobee of their own and who have taken to kidnapping people. They don't kidnap anyone in particular. Just, you know, whoever comes along. Everyone needs a hobby, I guess. When Gumby's groobee whistle doesn't subdue the Blockheads' bug, he tries to find another whistle that will, and ultimately fails. Eventually, Gumby pits his groobee against the evil groobee, fulfilling the title of the cartoon and winning the day. The Gumby League: Way back from the time when people cared about baseball comes this cartoon about Gumby's baseball team playing the Blockheads' baseball team. It's the bottom of the ninth inning, Gumby's team has scored the only run, and the Blockheads have come up to bat. The first one is out when Kapp catches his line drive in his mouth. The second one hits the ball straight through Gumby's stomach, only to be out when Pokey catches it. The third one hits a fly into the outfield. Everyone rushes to catch it, runs into each other, and gets molded into a sort of ramp that flings the ball back into the infield, where Gumby catches it with the hole that was punched in his stomach. I guess that means they win, 'cause everyone was happy about it.moreless

  • Super Spray / Mason Hornet / The Reluctant Gargoyles
    Super Spray: Professor Kapp has discovered that the solution to all the world's problems involves shrinking things. To that end, he's invented a shrinking spray with every intention to use it to make the world a better place for everyone. Unfortunately, it falls into the hands of Prickle, Goo, and Pokey, who have no goals beyond shrinking people who get in their way on the street and shrinking zoo animals that scare them. Wouldn't you know it, just as Prickle's about to shrink the gorilla, it steals the can from him, and Pokey and Prickle become tiny. This would be a problem if Kapp didn't have a growing spray, and he does, so everything's fine. At least, it is until, in a ridiculously contrived mishap, Kapp drops the spray, making it trigger at him until he becomes huge! With his giant brain, he acquires all the knowledge of the universe and brings the world to its knees. Mason Hornet: The Mason Hornet is on the loose! It builds brick walls around people, the evolutionary advantages of which are obvious. Pokey and Prickle are among the millions to be brick-walled, so Gumby and Goo decide they might as well do something about it. While Gumby breaks down the brick walls around town, Goo gives the Hornet a taste of its own medicine and builds a brick wall around it. It learns an important lesson about how you shouldn't build brick walls around people, and it plays catch with Pokey and Prickle. The Reluctant Gargoyles: Pokey, Prickle, and Goo are constructing a stick building. And the Blockheads arrive to cause mischief.moreless

  • The Golden Gosling / Do-It-Yourself Gumby / Behind the Puffball
    The Golden Gosling: Once upon a time, King Ott was pretty evil and he hired a witch to put a curse on a goose so that it could only lay golden eggs. This is sort of interfering with its reproduction plans, so it escapes at the first chance, only to wind up with Gumby and friends. Fortunately, Gumby majored in curse-breaking, so he gets the goose all set up. Unfortunately, Cad Waliter has been stalking them, and he takes them all prisoner. King Ott is dismayed to find that the goose no longer lays valuable eggs, but he's delighted when he learns that it has valuable offspring. And so, Gumby and friends are released, and the goose's children are used as legal tender. Do-It-Yourself Gumby: Gumby's got himself a big ol' thing-maker! Type in what you want, and out it comes. A turkey dinner! A piano that plays itself! A kitty cat (that accidentally turns out to be a tiger)! A cage to hold your newly-created tiger in! A robot to do all of your chores! The robot ends up playing with the thing-maker, so Gumby shut it off with a giant hammer. Remember kids: robots won't do your chores. Don't even think about it. Behind the Puffball: Prickle and Pokey are having a mini-golf tournament to see who's going to pay for ice cream. Unfortunately, Prickle hits his ball off the fairway, and instead of his ball, he hits a different ball that was lying there. Unfortunately, it was no ordinary golf ball; it grows ten feet across and starts rolling after Prickle and Pokey! Prickle is swallowed up by it, as are Pokey and several other pedestrians, but not before Pokey makes one last, desperate call to the Fire Department. Gumby and Goo track down the mischievous sphere. Fortunately, hoses and fire extinguishers are the answer to everything in Gumbyland, so the ball vanishes, leaving its victims behind, none the worse for their experience.moreless

  • The Magic Flute / Sticky Pokey / The Ferris Wheel Mystery
    The Magic Flute: Pokey and Prickle watch in amazement as Goo's magic flute makes a table dance. When she sets it down and leaves, they decide to "borrow" it a bit. Not only does the flute make tables dance, it also builds brick walls, scores them some free ice cream, and makes a woman get up from her wheelchair and walk again. Now how much would you pay? Unfortunately, they don't pay attention to where they're driving, and they crash right into a zoo. They're thrown from the car, and the flute lands in the possession of a horribly ill-constructed gorilla. The ape plays the flute and makes them dance until Goo comes along and gets the flute back. For stealing a magic flute and screwing with just about everyone in the neighborhood, they're sentenced to raking the front yard. Sticky Pokey: It’s been several years later, and the Blockheads are still trying to get that 100 ice cream cone reward for Pokey. It's driving the little red horse out of his mind! Fortunately, Professor Kapp has created the stickiest glue known to humanity, and he's got a plan. They build a wooden horse that looks like Pokey and cover it with the glue. The next time the Blockheads chase Pokey, they switch him for the wooden horse at a crucial point in the proceedings, and when they grab it, they get horribly stuck. And so, the Blockheads never did anything bad ever again ever. The Ferris Wheel Mystery: Panic strikes when the carnival is robbed of its cheap stuffed animals by hooligans running a black market cheap stuffed animal ring! The Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo Detective Agency is called in to do a thorough investigation consisting of Prickle, since it's far too complicated and expensive to ask the carneys to keep a closer eye on their stuff. The carnival's problem seems to lie in how they let the Blockheads on the Ferris Wheel and let them stay at the top long enough to snatch a toy with their fishing pole. Unfortunately, Prickle has the observational powers of a blender, and he has to call in Pokey. The Blockheads mistake Pokey for a prize and try reeling him in, leading, ultimately, to their capture. Justice is served!moreless

  • Point of Honor / The Golden Iguana / School for Squares
    Point of Honor: Gumby tells Pokey about how Goo dropped her handkerchief and Prickle picked it up for her. This makes Gumby angry, so he and Prickle decide to battle to the death. Pokey tries to talk Gumby out of it, but Gumby is a murderous idiot. His choice of weapon for the duel is a train, which he uses to completely mash Prickle into the ground. Goo is terribly pleased with Gumby for his glorious victory. The Golden Iguana: Prickle won a gold iguana in some vague sort of contest. Only problem is, he doesn't know what to feed it, so they go ask Professor Kapp. Unfortunately, the food he gives them makes it grow larger. The Blockheads, watching on, whip out their machine gun and steal the lizard and food and drive it out to the middle of the woods. They feed all of the food to the iguana, which makes it grow really big! School for Squares: The Bureau of Indian Affairs has just received a distress call from the Pesky Indians. It seems the conical Indian children are being captured by the Blockheads and taken to a school where they learn how to be turned into cubes. Gumby and friends grab the Blockheads as they try to leave the school. The Blockheads try to flee in their helicopter, but they don't get far. For their punishment, the Blockheads are put on a potter's wheel and molded into cones.moreless

  • Candidate for President / Gumby's Fire Department / Making Squares
    Candidate for President: Gumby is startled to discover that a dog has nominated him for Presidential candidacy, largely despite the fact that he doesn't know the first thing about how to be a president. And so, Prickle and Goo quest off to Mount Rushmore to find out who the greatest presidents ever were and steal their ideas. They then visit books about the presidents in question and ask them for advice, often at points in their lives before they were president. Washington gives Gumby a canoe to sneak up on his enemies in, Lincoln gives Gumby a hatchet to split rails, Jefferson gives Gumby a pen so that he'll be mightier than a sword, and Roosevelt gives Gumby a big stick to carry while he walks softly. Gumby's Fire Department: Professor Kapp's latest experiment is to see what effect a fiery explosion has on his lab, and when he's not pleased with the results, he calls Gumby's Fire Department. Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo pile into a fire truck and race down the road, crashing into things and leaving chaos and destruction in their wake. As the boys display no competence whatsoever, Goo forms herself into a life net to save Kapp and then a giant blanket to smother the fire. Goo is renamed head of the fire department, one more step in her campaign to take over the show. Making Squares: Pokey, Prickle, and Goo are riding on a toy train one day. Unfortunately, they forgot their seat belts, so when the train runs into a stack of Lincoln logs, they get flung into a net set up by the Blockheads. Sad, really. The Blockheads take them to their evil lair, where the Blockheads put them into a Machine. Despite typical lax Blockhead security, only Goo escapes. While she goes to get Gumby, Pokey and Prickle are put to work making something or other. Gumby and Goo attempt to assail the evil factory lair place, only to get captured. Though she obviously could have done it the first time, Goo waits until now to escape and tie up the Blockheads. Gumby uses the machine to turn the Blockheads into Cylinderheads, then to mess around with Pokey and Prickle's DNA until he gets something pretty roughly similar to what his original friends were.moreless

  • The Blue Goo / A Hair-Raising Adventure / Goo for Pokey
    The Blue Goo: Gumby's been shot down by The Black Baron! So now, it's up to Prickle to defeat the vaguely evil pilot for some reason or another. He's annoyed when Goo wants to ride on the wing, but he tolerates her. As Prickle is ridiculously overwhelmed by the master pilot, Goo flies out and spits clay in his eyes, causing him to lose control and crash. In his stupor, Prickle doesn't notice and thinks that he's brilliantly outwitted the Baron, as does everyone else. Prickle is given a medal of valor for no reason at all and Goo is dreadfully pleased that she didn't receive any credit at all. A Hair-Raising Adventure: Gumby is tired of being bald and decides to lead a more active lifestyle with his new hair! Kapp has created a formula that makes him sprout a rich, natural-looking head of hair that blends naturally in with his existing hair. Prickle, being a reptile, is fascinated with the idea of hair and warm blood and live birth and stuff like that, and decides that the formula is his perfect opportunity to experience a taste of mammal life. Unfortunately, the Blockheads come in wearing gags and packing a machine gun, which pretty much forces them to hand over the formula. There's a chase which quickly spreads to airplanes and becomes a dogfight. The Blockheads escape and overdose on the formula, turning them into hideously hairy things. Prickle finally gets to try the formula, but, being a reptile, all it succeeds in doing is making him horny (in the sense that he grows extra horns). Goo for Pokey: For some reason or another, Goo goes to school with Pokey one day and spits clay at him during class. Pokey's rather annoyed by the odd gesture, but it turns out that Goo's just flirting with him. She decides to take a less bizarre approach and buys Pokey an ice cream cone. Things take an uncomfortable turn when she practically sits in his lap (she probably would have if horses had laps), and Pokey excuses himself. Goo will not stand for this, and she vows to pursue Pokey to the end of the world. Everywhere Pokey goes, he sees Goo. Naturally, he concludes that he's going insane and consults a doctor. The doctor gives him some vague advice and, on the way out, Pokey steps on a blue rug which turns out to be Goo. She wraps herself around him and drags him screaming off to nowhere, swearing that he'll never get away.moreless

  • Siege of Boonesborough / The Missile-Bird / Good Knight Story
    Siege of Boonesborough: Gumby and Pokey follow Daniel Boone to the Siege of Boonesborough, where hundreds of Native Americans are ready to attack. The fort is hopelessly undermanned, so all of the women and children dress up as men and everyone gets two fake man heads to hold up. Gumby uses his fire extinguisher to neutralize the Native Americans' overwhelming three flaming arrows, and everyone pokes their heads up from behind the wall, making it look like they have several thousand more men than they really do. The Native Americans decide that there's too many men on the opposing side, so they cancel the fight. It just goes to show you, trickery was just as important as brute force in driving Native Americans out of their homelands. The Missile-Bird: Everyone's trying to catch the missile bird, a bird-like creature who, as one would expect, is missile-shaped and flies very fast. The bird is clever enough to send the government's top-secret sleeping gas missile back to its base, but it's not clever enough to avoid Gumby's metal butterfly net. Unfortunately, the bird zips happily along, dragging Gumby right along behind him, and the two are soon in the next county. Guys in lab coats from all over the world meet to discuss the problem, but in the end, all they need is a little horse sense; Pokey's missile bird decoy lures the bird in, and a rather dazed Gumby finally returns to earth. Good Knight Story: Gumby's trying to read everyone a lovely fairy tale about a nasty fierce dragon, but Prickle keeps ruining it by sneezing fire all over the place. He blasts himself right into the story Gumby's reading, so Gumby and Pokey go in to try and save him. Goo is told to stay behind, but she tags along anyway, only to be instantly captured by the nasty fierce dragon. Meanwhile, a knight is chasing Prickle around, thinking that he's the dragon that's been terrorizing the kingdom (largely despite the fact that Prickle is ten times smaller than the dragon he's looking for). Gumby and Pokey hear Goo crying for help, so they leap to her rescue in a terribly ineffective way. Goo spits clay at the dragon's mouth, which means that it's defeated now. Gumby returns to the castle with the dragon and the other knight returns with Prickle. The misunderstanding is cleared up and the dragon becomes a chef.moreless

  • Pokey's Price / Son of Liberty / Gumby Crosses the Delaware
    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

  • Dragon Witch / Treasure for Henry / Pilgrims on the Rock
    Dragon Witch: It's the further adventures of Henry and Rodgy. Henry's dressed up in a cross between cowboy and knight-errant costumes which, as Rodgy explains several thousand times in the next four minutes, is daffy. When Henry hears cries of distress from the book "The Bad Witch", he leaps to the rescue. Seems the witch hasn't been feeding her dragon, and he's preparing to eat her to make up for it. Since it's obviously none of his business, Henry stands up to the dragon, only to be chased away by some firey blasts. Rodgy suggests leaving them to settle their own labor dispute, but Henry has an idea. He lassoes the dragon's tail and ties it to a tree, then bravely sends Rodgy out as a decoy. The dragon chases after roger until he reaches the end of his rope, then he trips and falls over. Of course, this means the dragon is defeated, so Henry rescues the witch, who is really grateful and everything. He crosses out the word "Bad" and writes "Good" on the title of the book. Treasure for Henry: Gumby will not be here today. Instead, please enjoy Henry the living teddy bear and his friend Rodgy the clay bird. They're hungry, and they're sick of honey and bird seed (respectively). So, they decide to nip into a book, rob a pirate ship, and buy all the cheeseburgers and milkshakes they want. Unfortunately, the pirates catch them and make them walk the plank. Before they get tossed into the drink, a non-pirate ship arrives and starts up a little war with the pirate ship. Henry decides to help get the pirates captured and chops down the mast while Rodgy gets mistaken for a cannonball and fired at the other ship. All this leads vaguely to the pirates' defeat, so Henry and Rodgy are generously rewarded with a lifetime supply of honey and bird seed (respectively). Cue the muted trumpets and let's get out of here. Pilgrims on the Rock: Coming home from shopping for Thanksgiving dinner, Gumby and Pokey run across a Pilgrim who fell out of his book. They return him safely to the Mayflower and proceed to go through your basic "The Story of Thanksgiving" bit. They backtrack a few chapters to meet King James in person, but they're almost instantly imprisoned for their ideas about giving people the right to worship and all. Fortunately, they can just walk through a wall and go forward to the Mayflower again. The storm is so bad that the ship threatens to crack in half, so Gumby fixes it before going back to reality. Pokey doesn't learn a darned thing.moreless

  • Big Eye / Lawn Party / Who's What?
    8/3/57
    10
    Big Eye: Gumby's found a new friend inside his blood steam! He's a hemoglobin, and his name is Fred! Unfortunately, all is not well in blood land, as Gumby can see through his microscope. And so, he and Pokey shrink themselves down and visit the microbes on their little slide. It seems the scientist germs are stealing all of the oxygen from the hemoglobin to use as fuel for their rocket ship! Gumby finds out that the scientist germs are interested in firing a rocket up to study the giant eye in the sky. Well, the hemoglobin are more than happy to help, now that they know what it's for. It takes Pokey forever to realize that the big eye they're talking about was Gumby watching them through the microscope, and Gumby vows never to use a microscope again. Lawn Party: Pokey calls Gumby in from his yard work to watch the "animated people". What follows is a strange short feature about people who act like they're in a Gumby cartoon. Real, live people. In fact, there's a bunch of stop-motion effects to enhance the experience. It begins with people climbing out of the trunk of a car and going about their business. One of them sets up a picnic while another one puts on some skis and stands behind a lawn mower, which drags him around as it mows. Unfortunately, the lawnmower gets hopelessly out of control and chases him and a woman up a tree. It's up to the picnicking fellow to play torero with the rampant machine, and throws a blanket on it to make it vanish. Gumby is thrilled by the piece, and tries to reproduce the experiment by putting on some skis and standing behind his lawn mower. Unfortunately, this leads to the destruction of the whole world, a grim reminder that we must never trust animated people. Who's What?: This cautionary tale about the dangers inherent in dabbling with the forces of nature begins with a group of insane dolls playing Hearts. Somewhere else, Henry the Anti-Social Teddy Bear has unwittingly created life in the form of a small clay bird named Rodgy. As Rodgy searches for his identity and purpose in life, Henry goes on to mold a cat, refusing to believe that his creations have actually come to life, preferring, perhaps, to think that he's just lost his mind or something innocent like that. He holds this conviction even as the cat tries to eat Rodgy and the two of them loudly insist that they're living things. Unfortunately, Henry only really appreciates the repercussions of his actions when he finishes his masterpiece, a giant lion which tries to eat him. The clay creatures chase themselves around and around a box until they melt into a river of clay.moreless

  • Santa-Witch / Scrooge Loose / Pigeon in a Plum Tree
    Santa-Witch:
    It's the holiday rush in the toy store, and Pokey's on the run from crazed parents who want to buy him up and give him to their kids. He ducks into a book called "Unusual Stories", where he arrives at the North Pole, meets a seal named Cybill whom seems to be the precursor to Goo, and discovers that Santa is sick and can't fulfill his duties. Fortunately, Pokey has connections, and he calls up his old friend the Witty Witch. Pokey, Cybill, and the Witty Witch all fly off to deliver toys, using brooms to pull the sled since the reindeer will not obey them. Two naughty children stay up to watch Santa arrive and are scared out of their wits. To avoid another incident like that, Pokey has the Witty Witch wear a Santa mask to hide her gruesome face.

    Scrooge Loose:
    Ebenezer Scrooge is loose in Toy Land! Gumby and Pokey, playing Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, track him as he takes steps to push all the toys off the shelf of the toy store. Then he goes into a book called Santa Claus Stories to put an end to Christmas once and for all by replacing the children's toys with rocks. (I know. Don't get me started.) Fortunately, Gumby and Pokey catch up with him and trap him in one of Santa's sacks. Unfortunately, Santa mistakes him for a bag of toys and takes him along. And so, some lucky little boy or girl gets and old, cranky miser for Christmas.

    Pigeon in a Plum Tree:
    Gumby and Pokey get tired of reading a fairy tale, so they enter the book to watch instead. It's the story of King Ott's son, Harold, who, in spite of being a prince, was very poor. He wanted to get his fiancee a special Christmas gift and, as it turns out there's a sale on partridges in pear trees, so he goes to get one. However, the salespeople are out of partridges in pear trees and, picking up on Harold being a little slow-witted, they sell him a pigeon in a plum tree instead, which is guaranteed to make his fiancée hate him forever. Pokey wants to warn the foolish prince, but Gumby insists that they let the story run its course. (When has that ever stopped him before?) On the way to his sweetheart's house, the prince saves an elf (complete with a bag of magic pixie dust) from a wolf and, in return, the elf comes along to keep him company. As Harold goes in to greet his fiancee, Pokey decides to take matters into his own hands and tells the elf what's going on. When Harold's fiancee comes out, they're both surprised and delighted to find a solid-gold plum tree and pigeon. Gumby scolds Pokey for selfishly helping the prince find a happy ending.moreless

  • King for a Day / Sad King Ott's Daughter / Rain for Roo
    King for a Day Gumby stumbles upon the good king's book and finds that Ott is unhappy because, for some vague reason, he has to defeat a knight in a duel or move out of town. He's too smart to risk his own sorry butt, and so are his subjects, but Gumby has something they don't a water pistol. During the duel, Gumby squirts the knight in the eyes, hoping to blind him or something. Unfortunately, it's ineffective, and he's knocked off his horse. He tries again with grape juice, which attracts a small swarm of bees into the knight's helmet. He staggers away to have a nice allergic reaction, and Gumby takes over the kingdom for a day. Sad King Ott's Daughter: It's the world of tomorrow, where you can buy just about anything from vending machines! Like Morphs! Gumby and Pokey decide to buy a morph, just to see what it is. Turns out it's a small ball that you can command to turn into anything. This couldn't have come along at a better time, because King Ott's daughter has been stolen away by the Black Knight, who plans to marry her against her will. Gumby sends them a gold cup as an early wedding present. While the knight sleeps, Gumby uses his radio wristwatch to command the morph to turn into an elephant and save the princess. Gumby and Pokey are given a magnificent feast as their reward. Beware clay figures bearing gifts. Rain for Roo: Gumby has decided to be the smartest person alive, as evidenced by the graduation cap he wears in every single scene. When Cad Waliter hears Gumby brag about his knowledge of rain, they go to Roo to help a surprisingly angry and vengeful King Ott seed some clouds to make it rain on the parched kingdom. Unfortunately, Gumby uses a bit too much dust, and what do you know, soon several feet of mud rain upon the land. King Ott banishes Gumby to the dungeon, but he has a change of heart when Gumby mentions that the mud is very rich in iron. Suddenly, the fact that his kingdom is buried in mud doesn't matter, and Gumby is celebrated as a hero.moreless

  • Ricochet Pete / Northland Follies / The Small Planets
    Ricochet Pete: Gumby's the sheriff of an old west town. One day, the dangerous Ricochet Pete comes into town, firing his gun at anything with volume or mass, like Gumby's hat. Gumby nonchalantly orders him out of town, but Pete has a better idea. They'll go to a nearby valley and see who can be the first to scare the other person, and the loser leaves town. Since Pete is in no position to be making demands, Gumby accepts. Pete scares him off with some cheap Indian puppets, and Pokey scares Pete off with a rubber spider. It's sort of a draw, so Pete is merely sentenced to perform violent puppet shows. Northland Follies: Gumby and Pokey stow away in a box, thinking it's on its way to Hawaii. Surprise! They're dropped right on top of an igloo in the middle of Alaska. Unfortunately, the igloo belongs to a walrus and something that looks like Roger painted yellow. The fourth wall takes a bit of a beating when the now-homeless animals recognize Gumby and Pokey as television celebrities, but they still insist that Gumby and Pokey rebuild the igloo they indirectly ruined. We learn that Alaska is five hundred years behind in its news due to the fact that each year is one day up there, the igloo is rebuilt, and they celebrate with chocolate clam-dandy (chocolate sundaes served on clam shells). Their celebration is cut short when another box starts falling out of the sky, bent on destroying the new igloo, and Gumby and Pokey book it, lest they get asked to rebuild it again. The Small Planets: Gumby is sick of doing their chores, so he decides to run away from home. Running away from home means hopping in a space ship and colonizing a small planet. Pokey searched high and low for his friend, until he stumbled upon a book that states “The Small Planets”. Gumby recruits him to be a part of his adventure. Unfortunately, it seems all the good planets have been taken by previous run-aways. The first planet, Mars, has been turned into a giant railroad set by a spoiled little boy who won't share his planet with Gumby or Pokey. They're scared off the second planet by a little girl wearing various dinosaur costumes and who wonders why people won't stay and play with her. The third planet seems perfect, until they stumble upon a werewolf child who's terribly sensitive about people interrupting his piano recitals. Gumby and Pokey return to a life of servitude on Earth with bleak resolve.moreless

  • The Groobee / The Witty Witch / Hot Rod Granny
    The Groobee: The zoo's most ferocious lion has suddenly got sick and died. Five years later, Gumby meets Pokey at an exotic pet store, where Pokey is investigating Groobees. When W. C. Fields comes out to give them a demonstration, Pokey warns Gumby to increase his sales resistance, but Gumby won't let the man sell him anything. Gumby buys a Groobee, impressed with its ability to build boxes around animals. The next logical step is to go to Africa and get some new zoo animals. Gumby is attacked by a gorilla, a rhinoceros, and a lion all at once, but fortunately, the Groobee boxes them all up, so no harm done. Later, he gives a speech to the happy zoo-goers about his safari and gives them a free demonstration by accidentally losing control of the Groobee, which boxes everyone in the audience up before the bee can be restrained. The Witty Witch: A witch captures Gumby and Pokey by helicopter (as one would expect) and takes them back to her castle. No matter what they do to try and flee, they witch and her hired help are one step ahead of them. They're sent to the dungeon, where Gumby promises to come up with a plan and never does. They're taken to a theater with hundreds of other prisoners. Gumby, convinced that the witch plans to put on a spook show to scare them to death, closes his eyes and misses the witch's stupid comedy bit, which involves a piano that throws a pie in her face. Turns out the witch just wanted a captive audience for her one-joke show, and everyone goes home. Pokey refuses to tell Gumby what he missed by keeping his eyes closed. Hot Rod Granny: What are all those young kids into these days? Really fast cars, and Gumby's no exception. He and Pokey tear up the road, little knowing that they're on a collision course with wackiness. An old lady who's lost her glasses mistakes Gumby's hot rod for her little car and Pokey for her dog, Hexibar. As Pokey doesn't tell her about her mistake, she takes Gumby's car and drives around half-blind, putting herself in several hilarious and nearly lethal situations, like inadvertently entering a drag race. She's eventually stopped by the police. After serving her term, she decides that she likes the taste of speed, and buys Gumby's car, giving Gumby the funds he needs to buy another car.moreless

  • The Glob / Chicken Feed / Hidden Valley
    The Glob: Pokey delivers some ice cream to Gumby, who has taken up clay sculpting. Of course, in Gumbyland, clay is genetic material, and before Gumby can finish his sculpture, it turns into a living monster head and attacks. Gumby realizes that he created the monster, so it's his responsibility to run the heck away from it. He tries firing some ineffective toy rockets at it, but he eventually falls back on his running away strategy. The monster chases them to the old western town where Pokey grew up for a showdown with Marshall Dill Pickle. Dill's quick draw proves to be useless against the monster, and it swallows him whole. It spits him out a moment later, and he cries like a baby because it ate his ice cream cone. Seems the thing just has a sweet tooth, so Gumby and Pokey feed it some ice cream and befriend it long enough for the cartoon to end. Chicken Feed: The store was out of Gumby's favorite chicken feed, so he has to settle for the special radiation-enhanced chicken feed for Tilly. Unfortunately, he leaves Pokey in charge of feeding his chicken, and she over-doses, becoming ridiculously large. Fortunately, she doesn't instantly become horrible and destructive like most animals would in that situation, though her wandering around and laying giant eggs all over the place is hazardous enough to warrant a visit from the fire department and the vet. The vet gives Tilly some antidote and she returns to her normal, happy self. Unfortunately, Pokey tasted some of the chicken food, so the results are the same. Hidden Valley: Hidden Valley is the name of a place which no one has ever been to, no one has ever come from, and no one can locate. But we know it exists, because Gumby and Pokey are determined to find it by driving around the forest in their car. When their car overheats, they cool it off with water from a magic spring, which makes it fly to a place which, for the sake of argument, we'll call Hidden Valley. Gumby starts taking some pictures to prove that he's been to a place which has trees in it, while Pokey notices a dinosaur playing with their jeep. Gumby tries to ignore Pokey as he insists there's a dinosaur nearby, but it's kind of hard to ignore a dinosaur when he sets your jeep down in front of you and asks you to take his picture. Gumby gets some good shots of the dinosaur and his friends, but alas, their stay comes to a close when a predator shows up, tearing a wheel off the jeep as Gumby flies away. Gumby and Pokey bemoan the loss of the wheel.moreless

    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

  • Toy Capers / In the Dough / Baker's Tour
    Toy Capers: Gumby and Pokey decide to play catch, so Gumby works a giant pitching machine while Pokey mans a giant baseball mitt. Unfortunately, the machine goes out of control! When it's out of balls, Gumby goes to investigate what went wrong, only to get sucked in and pitched out. Then it's off to Car City to look at a sleek little toy car. Unfortunately, Gumby accidentally starts it up, and it whisks Pokey away! Gumby's harassed by a little yellow car for a while, until it goes back to its hive and summons a swarm of its brethren to destroy the clay boy! Gumby escapes by a hair's width. Fortunately, Pokey has gained control of his vehicle, and together they escape Car City. There's still a minute or two left to kill, so Pokey gets stuck on a monorail and Gumby climbs a tower of clear cubes to find him. The blocks collapse and Gumby goes through an unlikely series of tumbles, only to end up on the monorail with Pokey. In the Dough: Gumby's lack of cooking skills becomes painfully apparent when his pies and jelly rolls balloon into giant balls of dough in the oven. Fortunately, a lump of bread dough comes to life and offers to give Gumby and Pokey a tour of the giant bakery built into the back of his oven. Things go swell as Gumby learns the art of baking and Pokey refuses to understand anything, but things take a grim turn when the lump of dough grows about five times its normal size and reveals its sinister plan to make them into pie filling. They're mobbed by sentient baked goods, and the next thing we know, Gumby's parents find a Pokey pie and a Gumby jelly roll in the oven. Fortunately, the boys are none the worse for their experience. Baker's Tour: A little lump of bread dough beckons to Gumby and Pokey from within their oven. So, naturally, they shrink down and go in to take a tour of the bakery built into the back of their oven. The first room features dangerous automatic rolling pins which roll Pokey flat. Gumby leaves Pokey on a cookie sheet in the second room, and he mysteriously disappears. In the next room, the lump of dough rises into a threatening monster ball. They find Pokey just before he gets hit by a cookie cutter, and dozens of baked goods laugh at them. Gumby and Pokey have somehow been made into cookies.moreless

  • 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

  • Indian Trouble / The Racing Game / Gumby Racer
    Indian Trouble: While Gumby and Pokey are traveling to order the mail, they come across the Pesky Indians' territory. They must find a way to deliver the mail without getting scalped. The Racing Game: Gumby and Pokey are competing in the big race in the board game "The Racing Game". Since it's a board game, the rules are a little weird. When a whistle is blown, everyone has to stop. Depending on what space they land on, their chances of winning or losing get better or worse. Gumby starts with a huge handicap thanks to the way he chokes his engine, but he makes it up by landing on a green space. Gumby and Pokey get put inside their trophy and driven away. Gumby Racer: We're back in The Racing Game, only now there's a cross-country segment of the race. Gumby and Pokey go in for a pit stop. Unfortunately, their pit crew is a herd of Blockheads, and their car is sabotaged to death in about two seconds. Gumbo leaps from the stands and suggests that Gumby mold his body into a car. This turns out to work great, since Gumby can now use his magical powers to help him pass up the other racers. This upsets the Blockheads, so they throw stuff at Gumby and Pokey and blow bridges up and block tunnels with rocks. It's no good, of course; this is Gumby's cartoon, after all.moreless

  • The Magic Wand / The Magic Show / Pokey Express
    The Magic Wand: Gumby and Pokey are running a lemonade stand. Their first customer is Professor Hokus Pokus, a guy with really silly magic powers. Unfortunately, he leaves behind his magic wand, which gets out of control and breaks Gumba's good pitcher. Gumby grabs the wand, only to be whisked away to Magic Land, where he finds the giant top hat that Hokus Pokus lives in. Pokus is so happy that he gives Gumby a magic wand of his own which will perform one feat of prestidigitation. Naturally, he decides to use it to fix his mother's pitcher before she gets mad. The Magic Show: The cartoon begins with Pokey spinning through limbo, calling to Gumby for help. Unfortunately, that has nothing to do with our cartoon. Gumby lands in the middle of Magic Land which, according to a living Jack in the Box, is a place where anything can happen. (So, just like any other Gumby cartoon then.) It seems like Gumby is trying to return a magic wand to a magician, but the cartoon basically consists of weird stuff happening mingled with Gumby's encounters with two fellows who guard a door that's set up in the middle of nowhere and are easily fooled when they're trying to keep Gumby from crossing a bridge. Pokey Express: Somewhere in the Old West, there's a big load of letters that have to get delivered to Santa Claus, but those pesky Native Americans keep getting in the way. Gumby and Pokey decide to make the delivery. Things go fine until a bunch of conical creatures show up and start firing suction cup arrows at our protagonists. Gumby and Pokey hide in a tipi and start walking away with it, which baffles the cone creatures sufficiently that they can make the delivery. Unfortunately, Gumby and Pokey are replaced by a buzzard, which can fly and, thus, make the delivery more quickly and with less trouble.moreless

  • Toy Fun / How Not To Trap Lions / The Mocking Monkey
    Toy Fun: Pokey's attacked by a giant robot monster! But it was just Gumby playing a trick on him. Gumby and Pokey find a set of Tinker Toys which build themselves into a giant tower, which climbs up to infinity. Then they play with a kaleidoscope and a weird device that flies for no real reason. Unfortunately, Gumby falls out of it, lands in a toaster, and gets baked to a golden brown, so he has to take a knife and scrape off his outer layer of skin. Then Gumby and Pokey happen upon a doll house setting with a disappointingly empty box of cookies. Well, now they're in the mood for cookies, so the only thing to do is get out an Easy Bake Oven and make some. Unfortunately, by the time they're done, it's time for the cartoon to be over. How Not To Trap Lions: Richard the lion is lonely, so Gumby and Pokey decide to capture a wild lion and force him to be Richard's friend. And so, they drive into a book about Africa. After a precarious pit stop on a rickety suspension bridge, they dig themselves a nice, deep pit, and cover it with grass. A zebra wanders past, an elephant threatens to tip their jeep over, and a lion growls, which scares them so much that they run right into their own trap. The lion laughs at them for their foolishness and, presumably, devours them. The Mocking Monkey: While Gumby and Pokey attempt to trap a lion with a traphole, they hear a roar up in the trees. Gumby climbs up and finds out. There, he stumbles upon a monkey. It was a Mocking Monkey, because it can imitate any animal sound in the jungle. Gumby asks if he can help catch a lion.moreless

  • Lion Drive / The Eggs and Trixie / Egg Trouble
    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

  • Toy Crazy / Toy Joy / Lion Around
    4/20/57

    Toy Crazy: Our story opens with Gumby morphing himself in his sleep as he dreams of what he'll get for his birthday. He wakes to discover that his parents will let him have any one toy he wants from the toy store! And so, he and Pokey quest off to find a toy. Gumby falls in love with a toy train, but the train won't go without a fight. They trap the reluctant gift in the back of a toy ambulance, but it escapes when Gumby helps Pokey escape from a load of sand that accidentally gets dumped on him. Gumby returns home, dismayed that his present got away, but his father promises to get him a new one tomorrow.

    Toy Joy: In this excerpt from Toy Crazy, Gumby wanders around the toy shop like a child with attention deficit disorder, playing with any given object for perhaps two seconds while Pokey struggles to catch up with him. Why? He's trying to pick out a birthday present. When Pokey finally catches him, he agrees to help pick something out. After trying a giant rocking horse that rocks just a bit too much, he drives around in a toy car and eventually settles for the model train.

    Lion Around: Gumby and Pokey frolic merrily through the cardboard cut-out bushes, unaware that a lion has escaped from the zoo across the street! Gumbo sees the news on TV and, after watching TV a little more, he goes to make sure the kids are okay. Meanwhile, Gumby and Pokey have indeed stumbled upon the escaped lion and, after some initial apprehensiveness, they find out he's a pretty nice guy and decide to help him see the world. Gumbo gets caught in one of the zookeeper's lion traps while searching for Gumby. He's subsequently mistaken for a lion and put in a cage in the zoo. The lion gets tired of seeing the world, so Gumby and Pokey take him back to the zoo and release Gumby's father.moreless

  • The Black Knight / Mysterious Fires / Too Loo
    The Black Knight: Gumby's playing with a giant electromagnet on a crane one day, which accidentally strips the armor off of a knight who was passing by. As they sort the mess out, Gumby learns that the knight is looking for someone who can challenge The Black Knight, who has placed a spell on the dragon that makes it burn down wheat fields. And so, Gumby confronts the Black Knight, who challenges Gumby to a duel over whether or not the dragon should be freed. During the duel, Gumby slips out of his armor and uses it as a decoy to divert the knight's attention. The bad news is, now he doesn't have any armor. The local dragon came by, seeing that things aren't going well for Gumby, and it spewed flames at the Black Knight. As the Black Knight burns like a candle for about a half hour, Gumby runs off and returns with the electromagnet to strip the Black Knight's armor off, so now the knight is nude as well as roasted alive. Gumby and the good knight ride away on the dragon. Mysterious Fires: Gumby's sitting around one day, minding his own business, morphing himself around at random, when a knight approaches him, mistaking him for a wizard. It seems that he needs to find a wizard who can stop the fires that have been destroying his kingdom's wheat fields. And so, Gumby whips out his fire truck and comes to the rescue. Unfortunately, the fires were started by a rogue dragon. Fortunately, the dragon started crying and instantly agrees to Gumby's suggestion that he stop burning the wheat fields down. Gumby is knighted and the dragon becomes the king's pet. Too Loo: After Gumby woke up from his nap, he got up to turn off the record player. Two giant sentient notes jump out of it and hide in his mouth from the sour note, which also jumps out of it. When the sour note flies away on the record, the notes, Too and Loo, come out of Gumby's mouth and explain that they want to go home to the instrument they came from. Gumby agrees to take them to Music Land and help them find their home. Unfortunately, they forgot what instrument played them, so Gumby has to try them all, and they go into crying fits with every mistake. Gumby decides to put on a show to cheer them up. Meanwhile, the sour note has found their hiding place and he's using his little flying record to try and catch them. While the real notes hide, Gumby turns himself into Too and Loo. The sour note catches him, but then he turns back and catches the note. The note tells Too and Loo that they came from the flute.moreless

  • The Blockheads / Fantastic Farmer / Gopher Trouble
    The Blockheads: While trying to avoid the Blockheads, Gumby and Pokey enter the Old Western book. They decide to get some milkshakes. The Blockheads slip a scoop of ice cream into Gumby's shake, which the bartender completely ignores and soon, Gumby is stiff as a board. Before Gumby recovers, the Blockheads kidnap Pokey, intending to claim the reward Gumby will soon get. Thanks to the tremendous kick from Gumby's guns, he's able to blast himself through the sky and land on the Blockheads, just in time to save Pokey.

    Fantastic Farmer: Pokey's farm is in trouble! All of the corn is growing up hideously deformed, and only Gumby can help. After nearly blowing himself up with a chemistry set in the toy store, he happens upon a formula that makes the corn grow as a single, giant cob. This is just as undesirable, so he turns himself into millions of farmers and races around the field until the corn all comes up right.

    Gopher Trouble: The companion to The Fantastic Farmer, this explains why the crops were coming up all weird in the first place. It seems that a gopher with fangs has been putting additives into Farmer Glen's seeds to make them grow more roots so he can feed his family. He gives Gumby until five o'clock to come up with an alternative food source before he undoes all of Gumby's hard work. Necessity being the mother of invention, Gumby comes up with a box that turns dry wheats into roots. The gopher approves, and everyone's happy.moreless

  • Mirrorland / Lost and Found / Little Lost Pony
    Mirrorland: Gumby's mother sends him to buy some groceries and gives him a fifty cent piece to buy it with. Gumby goes to the garage, gets out his scooter, drives it down the driveway, and immediately runs into a fire hydrant, which makes him drop his coin. Knowing that it'll come out of his allowance if he loses it, he starts searching various nearby mirrors, where his various reflections offer no help in finding the lost money. One of his reflections offers to help, but when Gumby follows it into Mirror Land, a truck out in the real world tips the mirror over, causing everything in Mirror Land to fall over. In particular, Gumby rolls out of mirror land, where a truck dumps a load of sand on him. Fortunately, his fifty cent piece is in the sand pile. Lost and Found: Gumby gets 50 cents to buy a loaf of bread and a dozen eggs with a firm reminder that, if he loses the money, it comes out of his allowance. Gumby has to ride on a crane to get down from the shelf his house is on, but the crane operator delights in mixing him with cat litter, and wouldn't you know it, Gumby's 50 cents rolls into a mirror. His reflection offers to help him find it, but warns him that, in Mirrorland, everything has to be done backwards. After a jarring reverse car ride (where several towers of blocks are destroyed in reverse), Gumby finds the fifty cent piece buried in the sand pile. Little Lost Pony: Gumby meets Pokey by saving him from becoming a train wreck victim as the Blockheads watch on, dumbfounded. After padding the cartoon out with a short, pointless encounter with a rattle snake, Gumby takes the lost Pokey back to his ranch and receives a hundred ice cream cones as his reward, which he is forced to eat all at once. The cold ice cream makes Gumby lapse into a coma and Pokey has to rush to his rescue.moreless
