Episode Summary

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
