Episode Summary

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
